Bringing the Outdoors Indoors At Your Office

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Saturday, 20 May , 2023

Spring is always a great time to think about plants.  While most of us think of plants as things that belong outdoors, bringing the outdoors indoors is a great way to liven up your office space and create an inviting environment for your clients and visitors.  However, in order to successfully grow thriving plants indoors, there are several key factors you must address.

Growing Plants Indoors Requires Light, Water . . . and Patience

We have all visited retail or office spaces that have beautiful, lush greenery growing in their lobbies or offices, seemingly without any effort.  These areas may also feature water or even fire to enhance the experience.  While these areas may look effortless, chances are a great deal of planning and design went into making them work, and regular maintenance is required to keep them at their best.

There are several things to consider if you want your indoor garden to look beautiful and stay healthy, including:

  • It is a simple fact that plants require the right amount and type of light to thrive.  Plants grow based not only on the quantity of light they receive but also the quality of that light and even the time of day in which it occurs.  If you want a lush indoor garden, you must consider the lighting that will be necessary to achieve healthy growth for your plants.  In some cases, colored or filtered light may be necessary.  It may also be necessary to add artificial light to supplement that provided by windows or glass enclosures, particularly for plants native to tropical areas.  However, it is also important to realize that not all plants need the same amount of light at all times.  Most plants have some sense of the passage of seasons and adjust their light needs accordingly; therefore, it is important to adjust artificial lighting times or intensity to meet these particular requirements.
  • While all plants need water, they vary greatly in the scope of irrigation necessary.  Some plants, such as succulents, actually thrive with much less watering than normal “houseplants;” others, such as tropical shrubs, may require constant misting.  It is critical to understand your plants and their particular water needs in order to successfully care for an indoor garden.  More plants are killed by over- and under-watering than any other mistake.
  • As with any garden, a good indoor garden will take time and patience to cultivate.  Some species grow very slowly and may not fill in for some time; therefore, it is a good idea to intersperse plants with other types to have something “filled in” all year.  This is particularly true for flowering species or those that drop their leaves periodically.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
