Plantscape Designs is a family-owned business at the forefront of green interior design. Contemporary interior design trends too often minimize or outline the earthy colors and bold lines of nature, despite the fact that plants, flowers, and other natural elements make a demonstrable difference in the occupants’ experience. Plantscape Design was born with a mission to infuse corporate offices and commercial spaces with the natural design elements required to enhance mood and improve productivity. Plants act as natural air purifiers, releasing oxygen into the air to diffuse air pollution and improve air quality. Additionally, plants absorb sound and improve the acoustics of public or heavily trafficked office spaces. Lastly, plants reduce stress and minimize anxiety for employees and clients. As the years passed, not only did Plantscape Designs grow in number of new clients and staff members, but also the need for environmentally safe office workplace interiors became more of a consumer demand. Plantscape Designs, since its inception, has emphasized the importance of proper care and maintenance of plants in business environments. We have found that a staff of caring and knowledgeable technicians visiting client offices once a week to care for the plants results in a more beautiful environment. The interior plants remain healthier, enabling them to do the job of cleaning the air of toxins which are emitted into every office environment (See NASA-funded studies described in the Benefits of Plants in the Workplace page).
