When you think of landscaping, you probably think of the outdoors - taking existing land and making changes by adding flowers, plants or various structures to enhance the appearance of an outdoor space. Indoor landscaping, also known as “plantscaping” or “interiorscaping,” does the same thing - but inside. Similar to the great outdoors, indoor environments have plains, angles and horizons that can be altered or enhanced to become a true work of art.

It’s no secret that people find nature to be serene and visually pleasing, so it only makes sense to bring that tranquility inside. Using artistic designs and arrangements of living plants, you can use interior landscaping to create a natural, feel-good environment that appeals to the senses while adding aesthetic value to your space.

Next time you walk into an atrium, mall, hotel lobby or office building, look around and notice the decor and greenery displayed. The possibilities are truly endless. Interior landscapes enhance a business’ brand and personality. You can add color and texture to a corporate space with office plants and decorative containers.

If you’ve considered sprucing up your large atrium or lobby, indoor plantings and living walls are great for this type of space. Most people are surprised at how greenery can reimagine a professional space - whether residential, hotel, retail, hospital or office.

The Benefits of Interior Landscapes

Aside from creating beautiful sites, indoor landscaping provides physical and mental health benefits. The reason plants and trees are important to our ecosystem is because they remove carbon dioxide and produce oxygen rich air. Adding plantscapes to your interior enhances your indoor air quality by removing toxins and filtering air. Additionally, plants can save energy by increasing humidity and keeping the air temperature down.

Including plants in your office building is extremely beneficial for the effectiveness of your business. It has been proven that being surrounded by nature reduces stress, increases productivity, and generates happiness in employees. Research found that patients in hospitals rooms that are exposed to nature recover faster than those who are not! Plants also absorb sound; therefore, background noise in your building can be reduced.

Indoor Plant Maintenance

Now that you have a beautiful indoor plant display, how can you ensure the plants look beautiful and your space harvests the benefits of interior plants? Plant care specialists, or horticulturists, can help you to maintain your plantscape on a varying schedule, from a weekly to monthly basis.

Interior plant maintenance experts ensure your plants are irrigated, fertilized, pruned, and cleaned. Ultimately, the goal is to make sure your plants always look vibrant, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing.
