Why Offices Need Interior Landscape Technicians

The Role of The Interior Landscape Technician

With increasing frequency, hotels, hospitals, retail centers and other businesses are bringing plants indoors to replicate the beauty and environmental benefits they used to provide only outdoors. To make this greenery come to life inside requires special training and expertise. Interior landscaping professionals install and maintain plants indoors in unnatural environments, necessitating special considerations for plant selection, irrigation, fertilization and pest management. Interior landscape technicians give special attention to plant cleaning, pruning, watering and plant rotation. These specialists take particular pride in replicating outdoor green spaces indoors to offer peace, stress reduction and appreciation for people to enjoy.

Everything Grows prides ourselves on our professionally trained Horticulture Technicians that service our clients interior plants.  Contact us today to provide excellent plant care to your existing plants or to provide a new plant design.

San Francisco and Bay Area Offices Discover the Benefits of Having an Office Garden

As with the practices of corporate social responsibility, companies are increasingly going green inside the office premises too. Firms are realizing the advantages of converting some area office space into natural space with greenery and beautifully designed landscaping that not only capture the attention of the visitors but also keeps the environment fresh and energetic. They’re often known as Corporate Gardens and are a growing trend nowadays regardless of what the organization has as a business offering.

There are numerous benefits of a garden in the office space where employees have access, such as:

1. Teamwork and problem solving
The corporate gardens possess nature’s rejuvenating qualities that inculcate optimism in humans. The greenery allows the brains of employees to relax and focus better on the tasks at hand. Teamwork and problem solving skills are enhanced with healthy brain activity and engagement in gardening tasks in spare time. This allows them to focus on the pressing issues at work and fosters better problem solving.

2. Meditation
No time for yoga after work? Not an issue at all with your corporate garden. These gardens are naturally engaging and some amount of manageable exercise in these gardens help release endorphins that are the stress buster hormones. Meditation is an essential tool to relieve oneself of all the worries and ruminations, and provided a chance at the workplace, your employees are more likely to stick with your organization for long.

3. Organic Produce
Be it at the rooftop or anywhere else, the local produce of plants and (if any) edible items are a treat for the employees.  The fragrant flowers create an ambience of soothing goodness and positivity and the cherry trees could be what some fruit lovers would jump at. Organizations that are catering to the market with products such as food items can grow organic edible items in office gardens and provide the clients with a gift pack of fresh produce at meetings and seminars.

4. Wellness and satisfaction
The feel of natural soil and fresh air in the office garden gives a calm easiness which makes its way to the work desks. A harmonious workplace with a sound culture, moral values and heightened productivity is what’s witnessed as a result of corporate gardens. A loyal workforce is formed which retreats together in the garden and make the most of the positivity around them. A low level of absenteeism and reduced turnover rate is also observed in workplaces with gardens where employees have an access.

5. Healthy Atmosphere
A garden anywhere is a benefit to health in its surroundings.  Corporate gardens are a low cost strategy to provide employees with the health benefits of fresh air and greenery. Overall health and wellbeing is greatly affected with the environment and reaping the benefits of garden, employees can enjoy pollution free air and aesthetically appealing sight every day.

Office gardens are a great source of positive energy and enthusiasm for the employees and employers both. They also provide free space for break hours so employees could relax and recharge their nerves for better productivity at work.
