It’s almost the new year and time to get your new year’s resolutions underway. When it comes to your office garden, this is a good time to review what you achieved last year and to consider what you would like to change or update in the year going forward.
t EcoBalance, we are committed to helping our clients create sustainable and stunning landscapes to suit their surrounds, their buildings, and their organisations. When it comes to corporate landscaping, we understand that landscapes need to be maintained and refreshed over time and in line with changing trends.
Are you building an office block in a fire-prone area? Developing a property on an urban/wild interface that includes wild indigenous vegetation? If you’re looking at creating a corporate garden or landscaped space, it’s worth considering firescaping – the practice of including fire-safe measure in your garden to reduce the risk of a fire.
Your office garden adds value to your property and brings numerous benefits to your staff’s work experience. But it’s not enough to just have a garden – you need to maintain and care for it to ensure it stays in the best possible shape. An unkempt garden, especially one that is dry and dying, can have a negative impact far worse than not having a garden at all.
More and more, hard-working professionals are keeping late hours or working night shifts on big projects. And, as we already know that a corporate garden has many employee benefits, what could be better than a corporate moon garden?
Interior plantscaping is a style of interior decorating that focuses on the use of indoor plants and containers to decorate and energise interior spaces. As organisations take more notice of the importance of green spaces for workplace happiness and productivity, plantscaping has become more popular in commercial developments.
When it comes to a commercial property, outdoor spaces have many advantages including raising the value of the property overall and increasing employee happiness and productivity. But what if the office you’re building doesn’t have an outdoor space? Don’t despair – you can bring the outdoors indoors!
Not all commercial spaces lend themselves to large landscaped gardens or even outdoor spaces. This doesn’t mean that your office shouldn’t have some greenery or some form of a garden (a vertical garden is a good example), especially considering the benefits of a green environment for employees.
