A move to new purpose built headquarters prompted an interior landscaping design project that not only augmented the green objectives of the organisation but provided a harmonious working environment for staff.

Aureo Case Study
GreenBlue Urban interior landscaping

Green objectives mirrored

GreenBlue Urban was set up to research and provide solutions for assisting trees to establish in urban space with the goal of drastically improving urban planting success and increasing leaf canopy in urban areas.


Office planting was therefore particularly apropos for this client with their objectives in ‘greening’ exterior urban spaces. For their interior landscaping requirements they wanted to utilise cabinet top planting within their open plan office space with planting that had strong visual appeal.

With many years’ experience in cabinet top planting, Aureo was able to advise on the manufacture of bespoke liners to fit perfectly into cabinet top recesses within the open plan office areas. We also recommended species of live plants that would sustain the limitations of root space and lighting, as well as fulfil the customer’s requirement for plants larger than would normally be specified in this application.

In addition, a number of floor standing plant displays were added to the specification for other areas of the office and in the reception area of the ground floor, with complementing containers to harmonise with the new décor in each location.

Cupboard planting


High impact interior landscaping

The result was real visual impact that gave a tangible uplift to the office environment and in addition the live planting provides natural air cleansing and hydration within the space. The extra benefit was the brand augmentation achieved –live interior planting being so applicable to GreenBlue Urban’s values.

“What a transformation!  Real plants in our new offices have been very enthusiastically received by all our staff and visitors and have created a positive improvement to the overall atmosphere.  Thank you Aureo!”  Paul Bowie, Managing Director – GreenBlue Urban.

What people are saying about Aureo

Thank you for all the work you and your team do, ensuring our plants are cared for and providing suitable replacements when required.
The installation was really smooth, and we are pleased with the new machine. Thanks for your time with this.  I will make sure we are in touch when the review of coffee machines happens.
I have been dealing with Aureo for many years, always found them to be competitively priced and easy to deal with, the customer service is always excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his team.
Thank you for the biscuits, what a suprise. Its always a pleasure doing business with Aureo.
The feedback is very positive; the staff appreciate the new options available and the pleasant new machines.
I just wanted to thank you for your hard work and support over the last couple of weeks during my absence in arranging for the installation of our new vending machines.
All has gone smoothly. Thank you for making our machine switch over so easy.
The coffee machines are operating very well and are a joy to clean as the process is so much easier than the previous models
Just a quick thank you for our new machine, it is proving to be quite the success! Thank you to you and Gary for your help and efficient service
The service we have received so far has been second to none and the quality of the drinks and the machine itself is of a really high quality. I’m just sorry it took us so long to get around to making a change with the hot drinks we provide to staff!
We have had the coffee machine installed now for less than a week on a trial basis.  I don’t think there’s any way our staff will let us hand this back now!
What a transformation!  Real plants in our new offices have been very enthusiastically received by all our staff and visitors and have created a positive improvement to the overall atmosphere.  Thank you Aureo!
Our bottled water has been supplied by Aureo for several years now. Their staff are friendly, they provide an efficient service and fast delivery. On many occasions, we have received our delivery within hours of ordering.
The plant displays and your service levels are a distinct improvement to our old provider – my only regret is that we didn’t switch earlier.
Having used Aureo’s services for some time, I have found them to be professional, prompt and always reasonably priced. Their service is very good and the new Flavia Coffee machine we have installed is a big hit with our customers.
I’m so sorry, I have just realised that I didn’t say a huge thank you for the wonderful plants that you arranged so quickly for us. Everyone was really impressed, they do look great. Thank you!
Aureo provide an excellent service. They always deliver our order next day without exception. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a wide selection of products to choose from which we can offer our clients. Thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you for our plants – they arrived this morning and look really good. I have already had comments from staff and also our building manager who may be contacting you regarding changing her supplier!
We have been using Aureo to provide hot water for our staff refreshments for the past two years; we have found this method an excellent alternative to boiling kettles which tend to be uneconomic and time wasting.
I have just arrived back in the office to see our new plants, they look very nice :) very pleased!! Thank you
Just wanted to say over the past four years, the service we have received from Aureo has been second to none.  We would thoroughly recommend Aureo as a company with first class customer service. Many thanks
