4 Great Low-Maintenance Plants For Your Office


If you want to make your office a more comfortable and enjoyable place to work and hang-out, one easy way to achieve that is by adding plants to your office. Plants will give your office a more naturally, open feel and should improve mood and productivity in your office. Here are a few great low-maintenance plants to introduce to your office space.

#1 Spider Plant

A spider plant is a classic plant that thrives indoors. Its leaves are long and thin, with bright green in the middle and white stripe on the edge. It is called a spider plant because as it grows, new little time plants grow off the ends of the leaves in the shape of spiders, thus the name spider plants. Based on how the leaves hang down, spider plants are great in hanging situations. 

#2 Rubber Tree Plant

Another great pant for our office is a rubber tree plant. These plants look great because they have really big and glossy leaves. You need to water this plant the most often in the spring, when you need to keep the soil moist. In the winter, you don't need to water the plant that often, only a couple of times a month. 

#3 Aloe

Aloe is great plant to grow and sit on your desk. It is pretty and beautiful, and it is useful. You can use it when you have damaged skin or just for a moisturizer. It is beautiful as well as functional plant. It only needs to be watered occasionally, so that the soil doesn't completely dry out.

#4 Areca Palm 

If you want some plants that have some more height to them, an Areca palm is a great choice. It has nice, big feathered arching fronds that have lots of leaves on them. They can grow nice and tall, but not too tall to be inside. They can add some height to the plants in your office and be used to fill large spaces and great more privacy in your office. 

You don't want to put them in direct sunlight; this can cause the leaves to yellow. The soil needs to be kept more moist in the spring and summer, and a little drier in the winter. 

Keep in mind that every few years, as these plants grow, you are going to need to ensure that your office repots these plants. This will allow them to continue to grow and thrive. Work with a design firm, like Environmental Designs, for more

Beautiful Landscaping Can Transform the Look of Any Home

When my husband and I bought our house years ago, we thought it would be our "starter" home and we would move in a few years. We soon had two children, and we then decided against moving since we live in a great school district and we love our neighbors. However, I was growing very tired of the appearance of our home. We painted it a different color, and it still seemed like the "same old house" that we were tired of. We finally deciding that maybe good landscaping would "do the trick" and make our home more enjoyable to use again. We were right, and I now love our home! I now love spending time in our yard and just enjoying the scenery. I have such a passion for landscaping now I decided to create a blog about it. I plan to share many landscaping tips, so come back!
