Succulents

On the tables, in the windowsills or terrariums, succulents are everywhere. The luscious plants are nothing new, but their prevalence seems to be on trend in mass plantings, floral arrangements or just hanging out by themselves in a cool container.

Succulents come in a large variety of shapes, colors and textures. Use these in your space by mixing a variety of these trendy plants. They can be used in rustic and modern locations alike. You will see succulents hanging out in everything from sleek modern planters to rustic pottery or metal containers.

Monochromatic Color Scheme

One of the most recent trends in Interiorscapes is the use of monochromatic containers.  You will see this trend used in a modern office or boutique hotel.

A white container against a white wall allows the plants to speak for themselves and brings more attention to the form of the container instead of the color, but white is not the only color this works for. We are also seeing the use of black, grey and rich golden browns.

This trend pairs best with unique plant varieties. Think unique textures and forms, such as the large leaf of a Ficus Lyrata or the interesting trunk of the Open Weave Marginata.

Repetition of Plant Variety

Repetition may not sound like a very interesting design trend, but it creates a very dramatic statement when done correctly.  When used in mass, the same variety of plant creates a cohesive modern design. This can be accomplished by utilizing the same variety in multiple containers throughout your space or you can also get the same effect by repeating the same plant in just a single planter.

For an ultra-modern look, use different varieties of Sansevieria.  Sansevieria are low maintenance plants that can also handle very low light. This type of design is typically used for in spaces very modern and high-end spaces.

Why Property Managers Need Indoor Plant Service

office plants

Plants are an invaluable part of a healthy workplace setting. As a property manager of a multi-tenant building, you’re responsible for many tenants who rely on you to keep the building working properly and enhancing the environment for their guests, employees, and customers.

The benefits of live plants are great for your tenants. The right plants reduce airborne pollutants, create more breathable air, and can reduce errors, improve mood, and even cut down on sick days, which can save you money! Learn more

To get the most out of your office plants, though, you’ll need to know which ones are best for your work place environment, which may require learning about maintenance and understanding the time commitment.

However, if that already sounds like a lot of work, it’s best and more efficient to hire an indoor plant service.

You might be wondering if an indoor plant service is really necessary. Maybe you know how to select, plant, and maintain a whole host of greenery. If you’ve got a well-established green thumb, DIY may be a good idea.

However, if you don’t, it can be both discouraging and costly to watch your carefully selected plant life brown and wither. Whether it’s a stately indoor tree accidentally placed under an air conditioner vent or a crawling ivy that nobody ever misted, plants suffer without proper care.

Like your tenants, plants can’t do their jobs if they aren’t given the necessary tools. An indoor plant specialist knows what plants need, so you don’t have to.

The right indoor plant specialist helps you work within your budget to select plants and planters that are suited for your multi-tenant building. The specialist will maintain the plants regularly, replacing any that aren’t doing well so your plants always look healthy and thriving.

Most companies find that an indoor plant service saves them money by providing all the benefits of live plants without the time and staff associated with keeping plants alive. An indoor plant service may also be more affordable than you think.

If it were a mess and smelled bad, guests would have a terrible experience.

As a hotel manager, when you have guests in your hotel, you strive to give them the best experience possible. That’s why you have designated personnel such as your hotel greeter and front desk clerk to facilitate the relationship and achieve the right hotel guest experience.

All of these things are important for a great hotel guest experience.

So how can you continue to wow your hotel guests?

In a hospitality business like a restaurant or hotel, the plants you choose to augment the environment is almost as important as your staff and amenities.

Hotel plants serve multiple functions, and they should always be included in your overall design concept.

In addition, there are many ways that plants can actually help efficiently transform your hotel time and time again, so your hotel always looks fresh and innovative.

Green living walls are also called eco-walls or vertical garden systems, and can be installed on any existing wall or they may be freestanding structures in which plants grow with little to no soil. They can grow flowers, greenery, leafy plants of all kinds, and even herbs and other edibles, and can be installed indoor or outdoor.

Multiple Functions, Multiple Benefits

All plants have great benefits for the workplace, including increased productivity, improved air quality, temperature and sound control, and of course, the visual aspect we’re discussing. Learn more about the benefits in this free guide.

Let’s start with your hotel entryways. Tall hotel plants in your atrium can help regulate the temperature by slowing down the escape of heat or air conditioning from the building. Well-chosen greenery also provides clean, slightly fragrant air that helps clients relax and encourages deeper breathing.

Guests may not notice this environment consciously, but it all impacts their overall experience in your hotel. Just like a party, relaxed and comfortable guests tend to be more open to spending time in your lobby or restaurants, giving the impression of a successful, thriving business.

Hotel plants also enhance the décor and can be used to great effect during group events, conventions, and gatherings. Setting up a unique plant display like a Green Livin Wall for an event helps guests feel special and shows them you’re willing to go the extra mile to make their experience superb.

In addition, not only do Green Living Walls look lovely, but they also improve air quality and help keep rooms at a comfortable humidity level. They reduce toxins from luggage, traffic, air pollutants, and smoke, which can be extremely beneficial. Never underestimate the impact of free, easy breathing when it comes to producing happy guests.

Finally, thriving Green Living Walls show hotel guests that you’re adept at taking care of things—including the specific needs of your customers.

Case Study: A Plant Solution for a Shaded, Outdoor Environment

Westin Hotel San Antonio Riverwalk WestinRiverwalk

Horticulture specialists face many challenges in their daily work. They’re required to examine a space, whether indoor or outdoor, check its environment, and consider its lighting, temperature, humidity and other factors all to help each client select the right types of plants, greenery, planters, and accoutrements that achieve the desired look and feel while staying within a budget.

Many times, there are challenges in any one of these steps. For example, one of our horticulture specialists, Paul Bradley, came across a challenge with the lighting when he worked on a bed along the San Antonio Riverwalk at the Westin Hotel.

The bed gets very little direct sunlight, so we had to go with a lot of shade variety plants that brought in the color that flowers often bring in. As we all know there isn’t a lot of flowering shade plants, so this was a challenge.

Other beautiful features of this space is the walkway we created through the center so that guests could take pictures, which is very popular along the Riverwalk.

“I wanted to create a space that is unique to any other property downtown and let everyone know that this is Plant Interscapes,” Bradley said.

If you need the plants in your office, restaurant, hospital, or home to look their best and stay that way, indoor plant services are the way to go. The right plant specialist should guarantee their work and keep your plants looking their best over time. Interior plant services give you all the benefits of plants without any of the risks associated with going it alone.

Horticulture specialists can help you select just the right plants for your space, and keep them looking their healthiest. Well-maintained plants in a business give the impression of confidence, competence, and caring.
