Why we need gardens to refresh our body and spirit
“As a writer, I find gardens essential to the creative process.”
In my last article, I mentioned we would take an in-depth look at 4 Proven Ways Plants Improve Your Bottom Line to understand how plants can be our best friends in the post-pandemic “new normal” we all face. As executives, managers, and business owners, we are tasked with providing enhanced customer experiences of safety & well-being, while operating at financial deficits due to months of lost revenue.
As American businesses position themselves to re-open in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, now more than ever executives, managers, and business owners are looking to improve their bottom line in the face of lost weeks and months of revenue.

(Lush Live Plants + Beautiful Planters = Guaranteed Gorgeous!)
Live plants are beautiful. Ceramic planters are stunning…again, yes! But some kind of magic happens when you combine them as one. Some weird math would say, 1 + 1 = 5!
When it comes to designing a plantscape for an establishment, it is definitely not a “one size fits all” proposition. Placing a canned combination of third-rate plants in mediocre containers is not our idea of what plantscaping should be.
