When living plants are expertly integrated into workspace designs, they help to foster creative and happy teams. They create attractive spaces where people want to be.
In a world where flexible working models become the norm, attractive workspaces help to recruit and retain staff, and to reduce absenteeism caused by stress.
Living plants release oxygen, absorb excess carbon dioxide and help to filter out harmful airborne toxins, improving air quality as a whole.
Adding plants to entrances makes staff and visitors feel warmly welcomed on arrival. Spectacular displays of plants can lift reception areas and give that vital positive first impression of a business.
Whether working with an existing space or being involved at the design stage, we use greenery to enhance working areas. Hard edges are softened, bland surfaces lifted with colour – the effect is transformative.
Sometimes undervalued when considering workplace design, corridors can make or break a building’s ambience. Plants can lift otherwise bland corridors, and even be used to create natural walkways.
Temperature and humidity in kitchens can vary hugely, so choosing the right plants here needs experience. Get it right and they create a calming environment for staff, and help to keep the air fresh.
Meetings should be triumphs of collaboration, not ordeals to be endured. Research shows that adding greenery to meeting rooms can boost productivity and creativity by 38% and 45% respectively.
Rooftop terraces or large balconies can be tremendous assets. The right plants can transform them into open-air meeting and relaxation areas, or spectacular venues for hosting company events.
We offer a complete package, from initial design support, through on-site installation to ongoing maintenance to ensure it looks as great in five years as it did on the first day.

Air quality is now something many employers are very conscious of in office environments. Progressive and aspirational building standards, such as Fitwel, WELL and SKA all recognise that air quality has a direct effect on health and wellbeing. Plants have been proven by NASA to have air purifying qualities and biophilic design is being widely incorporated in office schemes.
