Too often, plants are considered an afterthought in modern design. They are considered an accessory rather than an architectural fixture. When a true effort is made to embed living greenery within a built environment, the effect is palpable. Plantscape Designs uses features such as vertical gardens of wall-mounted plants (so-called “living walls”) to bring the outdoors in. Living walls can be incorporated into stairwells, baths, and conference rooms to improve the occupants’ mood and increase productivity. Plantscape Designs features a number of other available options, including colorful bromeliad designs, hardy succulent arrangements, or simple pothos planters. Call the expert horticultural technicians at Plantscape Designs and enhance your surroundings—and lifestyle—today.
When we think of adding a colorful accent to our indoor office plants we often think about cut flowers or a flowering potted plant. Actually there is another option. Tropical foliage plants that have beautiful colored leaves. If your office has the right conditions, bright light and warm temperature, there is an unlimited selection of plants that have colorful foliage and variegated leaves. Crotons, Cordyline, Rex begonias, Stromanthe are just a few that can brighten your office with some color. We use many of these on locations in the Boston metro area. Colored leafy botanicals have unlimited plant possibilities.

Concert Pharmaceuticals, located in Lexington, MA, develops innovative drug products that have impacts for patients by addressing medically important needs. Because of the company’s use of various chemicals in their lab, they’ve recognized the importance of having green plants, as they help clean the air of these materials, keeping the environment a healthier place to work. Plantscape Designs, Inc., has outfitted them with a number of these plants, and provides weekly service and maintenance.
“These live green plants that Plantscape Designs, Inc. has installed help clean our front office air from any styrene, ammonia, formaldehyde and benzene airborne chemicals floating in the air from our labs located in the rear of our building complex.”
If You Can’t Ditch Them, Make Desks Pretty
Where desks aren’t being used, don’t put a big “out of use” sign on them, Avery said. He suggested finding more appealing ways to block out the space, like putting plants on a desk that isn’t in use to make a lovely green interior landscape or putting artwork on it.
