The decision to enhance your working environment with interior planting is an easy one – considering all the associated benefits. It is not only the colour and beauty that plants bring to our surroundings – there are the additional payoffs of better air quality and boosted morale among the team. However, selecting the right plants for your work place isn’t always straightforward; there are several factors to consider – some of which we’ve listed here to help you.
Choosing the right plants for your work place
Light, temperature and space
Different species respond to these stimuli in different ways and the combination of all three will ultimately dictate the most suitable species. Placing delicate leaves in direct sunlight, overwatering shaded plants, potting in restrictive containers – the potential misdemeanours on the part of humans against the plant world are numerous! Whatever the combination in your building, there is normally an ideal specification which we can help to ensure is optimal.
Bold and beautiful or subtle and charming
Sansevieria Trifasciata Laurentii or Aglaonema Pseudobracteatum? Not the wives of Ancient Roman emperors but plants specified with your corporate image in mind; is yours a brash brand that makes a huge statement or one that is more understated and select? The impressions you create when clients visit your premises will exhibit your corporate identity. The Latin names of literally thousands of species are second nature to us – we’ll be happy to translate.
What is the purpose of your plants?
Visual impact or environmental benefits, there are bound to be species that offer precisely what you need for your environment. Air quality and “sick building syndrome” are high on the agenda for all those serious about their workforce health, but perhaps you’re more interested in a brand reinforcing colourful array of planters? There are often several criteria to meet and we excel, of course, in finding a balance to keep everyone happy!
