Bringing the outside inside since 1977
Plant Plan harnesses the power of nature to boost human performance and wellbeing across a range of office environments, with studies having shown that including office plants in your space can have far-reaching benefits for your team's health. Our extensive portfolio of commercial and business projects showcases how planting can create energised work environments with a real connection to the outside world.
From small succulent plants to huge 6-metre trees, we’ll help enrich your office environment with inspiring colour and texture. We recognise that no two workplaces are the same, and we take a bespoke approach to each individual project. Plant Plan will develop a planting scheme that is tailored to the layout and look of your interior, the function of each individual space, your maintenance preferences, and your available budget.
Plant Plan provides a complete service for businesses wishing to incorporate planting into their environment. We design, supply and install all elements including planters, cabinet top troughs, moss panels, green walls, built in liners, and large feature trees, and can work with other contractors to incorporate lighting, signage and more.

What are the best plants for your desk?
When thinking of ways to brighten up your desk space, we often reach for any old potted plant to just add some much-needed colour to our work area.
But, if you carefully consider the types of office plants available, you could actually be helping to improve your productivity, mental wellbeing and the quality of the air you breathe in.
The Jade Plant, or Crassula Ovate as it is technically referred to, is a great addition to an office plant collection.
Remembering to water or maintain a plant won’t be on the top of your to-do list. So choosing a plant that needs very little maintenance or watering is key, and the Jade Plant is one of them.
It’s very durable, and can withstand harsh office lighting, so will be very happy simply placed on your windowsill or desk, and of course, its thick, shiny leaves will bring some colour to your workspace.
Our other go-to office plants are the Peace Lily, Snake Plant, Aglaonema Maria and the Devil’s Ivy.
These plants are on the top of our list for the office as, just like the Jade Plant, they are very durable, and need very little upkeep to ensure they last over the weekend, and in harshly lit workspaces.
Why are plants good for the office?
You may think office plants are just an effective way of adding greenery to a commercial space.
At a time when your biggest competition for office space is the home, it is important to blur the edges between home and the office. Using plants and flowers is a great way to do this and we advocate multi-faceted planting schemes that make people desire to be in and work from your space.
But, they have, in fact, got many more uses than simply adding some colour to your desk. From purifying the air, to balancing the temperature of your office space, we believe plants should be given a lot more credit for what they can bring to a workplace.
We all know how offices can be a breeding ground for illnesses.
And with offices separated from any outdoor greenery, people can often experience symptoms such as drowsiness, nausea, headaches and eye and throat irritation. This is also known as Sick Building Syndrome, which affects many people working in office spaces.
As plants are able to clean the air, they are able to remove the build-up of toxins, to ensure that the air is filtered and less likely to cause the spread of illnesses.
Plants are also a welcomed addition to any office looking to improve productivity and wellbeing. It’s believed that workplace productivity can increase by 15% when plants are incorporated into an office space, as the environment becomes brighter, and therefore more inspiring to the workforce.
Since 1977 Plant Plan have been bringing the outside inside, using plants, trees and green walls to infuse office, retail, hospitality and corporate environments with the inspiring beauty of nature.
What plant is suitable for the office?
There’s lots of different options, but one of our go-to’s is the Jade plant. They’re easy to maintain and look great too, bringing in a vibrant feel without requiring too much attention. The Snake Plant, Aglaonema Maria, The Peace Lily and The Devil’s Ivy are some of the others we recommend: nice and easy to look after, they look great and are durable too.

Should I get a plant for my office?
We think so! You spend almost half of your waking life in the office, so it makes sense to add some colour and life to your workspace. Aside from giving your office a new lease of life, plants can increase air quality, reduce sickness, boost your mood and reduce stress levels. A plant of many talents, if you will.
Can plants survive in an office?
Absolutely. They’ll need a little bit of TLC here and there, but if you pick the right plants, they’re pretty low maintenance. With the office empty over the weekend, your plants will be fine by the time you come back in on Monday. Just make sure you ‘say hello’ at the start of the new workweek to keep them healthy, happy and around for a long time.
Do office plants need sunlight?
All plants need some form of light to survive, but it doesn’t have to come from natural sunlight. Your office plants can get the light they need indirectly or even artificially through light bulbs. If you need help picking an office plant that matches the available light in your office, get in touch and we’ll give you our best tips.
Do plants improve productivity?
They can, and by up to a whopping 15% too! Office plants brighten our environment and filter the air. This boosts our well-being, helps us to relax and heightens creativity. The result is a happier, healthier and more productive team in the workplace. Sounds good to us!
What are good low light office plants?
The Jade Plant is great at withstanding poor lighting conditions, so we’ll always recommend you think about a Jade Plant. It’s the same story with The Snake Plant, Aglaonema Maria, The Peace Lily and The Devil’s Ivy - all are low maintenance in general, and tend to be able to plough through poor lighting conditions. We always say you should try and give all of your plants as much light as you can, but these ones are more durable than most.
