Plantscaping is a one-of-a-kind science and art whose main purpose is to add to the aesthetics and usefulness of a space, creating a more inviting and livable environment as a result. And if this space is utilized for business, plantscaping can enhance your brand image, including your customers’ and employees’ health and overall satisfaction.
Generally, your plantscaper would be a specialist who handles the entire process, from interior and exterior plant design to installation to maintenance. This work requires a careful analysis of a site such that only the right plants go in the right spots or areas.
Plantscape designers have to be well-versed in 2D design principles in line with the usual art school foundational studies. To create unique designs, they consider several options of plant materials and containers. Equipped with professional horticultural knowledge, these designers choose plants on the basis of various factors, like moisture, soil and light conditions, in addition to ease of installation and maintenance.
Transforming Business Facilities
As opposed to architects and interior designers, plantscapers also deal with plants for the purpose of improving the flow of traffic in both homes and business spaces. Plantings can enhance the appearance of large entryways, for example, relax tight corners or serve as divisions in a large space. With a good planting, any space can look more inviting and “people-friendly.”
Interior plantscapers are experts in terms of horticultural material selection and sourcing, even in the most unnatural locations. While the plants are often tropical, specimens are mostly selected depending on whether or not they can survive low light and low humidity conditions characteristic of most commercial buildings.
Plantscaping – More Than Installation
This is where a group of plantscaping technicians come in handy. They are experts in everything about plants, such as how they grow and react to different environments. When you talk about the weekly tasks to be done (fertilizing, waering, pruning, treatments, etc.), your contractor counts on plantscaping techs.
Whatever the weather, activity or special occasion, these technicians are in charge of keeping plant installations remain fresh and healthy all throughout the year. “Typically, this as well includes “bloom rotation,” which is basically a schedule of replacements for more sensitive or colorful flowering plants.
Importance of Exterior Plantscaping
All design and horticultural issues are applicable to exterior plantscaping too. However, outdoors, the preparation done to make a planting bed or container that is supposed to support the plants, can play a vital role in whether a design will be a success or a failure. Plantscaping experts have access to industrial grade containers that are mainly intended for commercial usage. In general, this means selections of shapes and sizes, and lighter weight colorfast materials which the usual home gardener will not have access to.
