Why You Need Plants In Your Office And A Professional To Maintain Them

Posted by

Plants we can find outside provide us with a wide range of benefits that play great importance in our daily living.  But most people are working indoors for many years with air conditioning, synthetic materials, and a totally sealed environment.  These three workplace conditions release gases and chemicals into the air which can have detrimental effects on people’s health.  Many studies have been conducted and have proved that indoor plants are able to remove or decrease the concentration of these harmful chemicals, which is why interior plants are becoming popular today.  Throughout the United States, there are numerous companies that offer interior plant design and maintenance because of the recognized benefits indoor plants have on the office environment.

Indoor plants can increase productivity of workers because green plants refresh our stressed eyes and minds. By looking at beautiful, green plants and trees, a long day of stressful work can be lessened and can even decrease absences due to poor indoor atmosphere.  Also, plants are known for their oxygen producing function in our environment. Having tropical plants in our surroundings can increase the feeling of freshness.

Many are surprise to learn that plants and trees can reduce noise in the office, at home and even in streets. There were studies conducted that proved  indoor plants are capable of breaking sound waves thus decreasing the frequency of sounds. This is very helpful in an office that is noisy due to the employees and background sound.  The side effect of a quiet office is it creates a relaxing atmosphere in which to work.

With the benefits of plants also comes responsibility.  Like any other living creatures, plants must be taken good care of to grow and survive especially inside an office building. Employees within the office can care for and maintain the plants but  a better choice is hiring a professional interior landscaping company.  In the end, this approach guarantees the benefits plants give and can save money.

There are two important things to consider when you make the decision to use plants in your office: light and humidity.  Plants and trees need appropriate light and humidity to thrive.  An experienced interior landscaper knows the light and humidity needs of the plants that he uses on site.  He knows the best location to install the plants as well as which ones are compatible with the indoor climate.   This can save the company money in costly replacing of plants that were not appropriate for the light or humidity of the office. The investment you make for using a professional interior landscaper is guaranteed.

Improve your working environment and employees’ morale with  interior office plants.  Live plants are not just for decoration but also provide great benefits that you cannot gain with a piece of furniture. It can help employees in reducing stress in the workplace thus increasing profits through increased productivity. Make your workers feel the concern you have for them and provide the motivation they need by considering the addition of live greenery in your work environment.
