Plants in the office not only improve air-quality but office plants have also been shown to boost employee morale. The last point is probably just common sense, but it still requires some convincing within certain industries.
Given the choice, would you prefer to work in a sparse office environment (known as a “lean” space) completely devoid of anything green and alive or a “green” space with decorative containers holding a variety of lush foliage?
Simply closing your eyes and imagining the two spaces should make your choice abundantly clear.
It may seem like the simple solution is to purchase a small selection of potted plants from your local garden center and check that task off your move in list, however, unless, someone on your staff has been trained in interior design, along with a background in horticulture and a touch of luck, you may find the results less than satisfying.
Selecting just the right plants that will thrive in your office space and enhance the image you wish to project to visitors and staff alike requires both experience and careful analysis. This is where an office plant services company servicing the DC, MD, and VA area such as Inside Out Services comes into play.
