I did a lot of research trying to decide where to buy the greenery to make this backdrop. SO glad I went with this. It took two boxes of the faux boxwood to make my board (7ft tall x 8 ft wide). This is really good quality and didn’t fall apart or flake off… we were so happy with it and got a ton of compliments. It’s not that see through but we did paint our wooden boards green first to prevent seeing through it at all.
