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 used for your business, plantscaping can have a positive impact on your brand image, including the health and general satisfaction of your customers and workforce.
Usually, your plantscaper would be a specialist who takes charge of the process in its entirety – from creating the design to implementing it to providing maintenance services. This project requires site analysis that helps put the right plants where they should be.
Plantscape designers should be masters of two dimensional design principles that form a huge part of art school basic studies. They select from a whole range of plant materials and containers to make various distinctive designs. Armed with pro horticultural knowledge, these designers make plant selections based on several factors, such as soil, light and moisture conditions, on top of ease of installation and care.
Transforming Business Spaces
In contrast to interior designers and architects, plantscapers work with plants for traffic flow management as well, both in homes and commercial properties. Plantings can enhance the appearance of large entryways, for example, relax tight corners or serve as divisions in a large space. With a successful planting project, any area can look more desirable “people-oriented.”
Interior plantscapers are experts in terms of horticultural material selection and sourcing, even in the most unnatural locations. In general, though the plants are probably tropical, they are selected based on their ability to hold out through the low light and low humidity conditions typical of commercial buildings.
Plantscaping – Beyond Installation
This is how plantscaping technicians can prove indispensable. They are professionals in everything plants, from their growth process to their reactions to various environments and more. When you talk about the weekly tasks to be done (fertilizing, waering, pruning, treatments, etc.), your contractor counts on plantscaping techs.
No matter the weather, event or activity, these technicians ensure that plant installations stay fresh and healthy from day to day. Usually, this will also include rotating replacements for more delicate or colorful flowering plants, a service called “bloom rotation.
Significance of Exterior Plantscaping
In exterior plantscaping, all design and horticultural concerns apply as well. 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 professionals can use industrial grade containers made exactly for commercial uses. Generally, this means options of shapes and sizes, as well as lighter weight colorfast materials that are not always available to typical home gardeners.
