How Do I Choose the Best Office Plant Service?

To choose the best office plant service for your commercial space, consider where you'd like greenery as well as the reason for it. For example, you may want to add plants mainly as a visual, calming way of relieving stress or mostly to enhance the office decor. If you don't want to buy plants to have yourself or your staff care for, a rental service that maintains the greenery can be the best choice. Consider a plant service that will give you a free consultation as to the best types and placement of plants for your office.

If your budget for plant rental is limited, you may want to concentrate on just a few key areas in your office space to decorate with greenery, such as reception and the conference room. A good office plant service consultant can help you choose the best greenery to suit the amount of light your rooms receive as well as to suit the decor. If your office space is more compact rather than spacious, it may be best to choose tall rather than bushy plants.

For larger, open commercial areas, you may want to select large, leafy plants to make the area feel cozier. If you have a corporate head office and/or a higher budget for an office plant service, you may want to consider indoor landscaping. A service that does indoor plant landscapes can create and maintain elaborate green spaces within the building such as a seating area with a rock garden in the center. Choose a service that can give you helpful information, such as the best plants to choose for staff who may have allergies.

Some office plant services have other products your company may need. If so, you may be able to negotiate a better price with an office plant service. For example, you may be able to save money on the plant service if you regularly order fresh fruit baskets or planter arrangements as gifts for clients and staff.

Before hiring a plant service, be sure your fee will cover complete maintenance, or it may not be worthwhile for you to hire the company. A complete office plant service will typically consult with you in picking greenery to rent, then provide watering, pruning, soil supplement treatment, pest control and re-potting. It's also a good idea to pick a service that will regularly dust your plants to keep them looking attractive, as not all office cleaning companies include this.
