These days, modern office spaces all have certain design elements all geared towards engaging employees and impressive clients. From open floor plans and motivational messages to piles of snacks and lush office greenery,
dull workspaces are a thing of the past. In fact, if you look at some of the most successful companies around the world, all of their office spaces feature indoor plants and greenery.
When it comes to indoor plants, planter boxes are some of the most adaptable and common additions to modern offices. Here at The Plant Man, we have a variety of classic and contemporary designs that can complement the look and feel of your rooms, transforming your corridors, corners and plain seating areas into stylish and vibrant workspaces.
As their name suggests,rectangular planter boxes are larger, rectangular receptacles that create a clean, contemporary space for a row of plants. Also known as trough planter boxes, these containers are perfect for courtyards, as a green addition to plain walls or used as a divider in larger rooms. We can pair troughs with different types of mulch that can dramatically change the style of the set, from classic mulch for an organic experience to white stones for a clean contemporary look.

These planters are smaller versions of the planter box that can fit onto a desktop. They can really liven up the plain, artificial environment of cubicles and desks, creating a fun or fashionable ornament to improve the mood of tired colleagues. We advise pairing a desk planter with plants species like Zanzibar Gem or the Peace Lily, known for their air purifying qualities.
Joinery Planters are similar to floor and trough boxes, but constructed with wood and watertight liner. The use of the clean timber imbues rooms with natural, earthy tones that can really enhance the raw effect of the plants and soften the cold, hard lines of modern offices.
Also known as elevated garden planters,raised planter boxes take advantage of a hybrid gardening technique. Traditional containers are smaller than a raised bed; meanwhile, standard raised beds lack a bottom. Elevated and raised planter boxes combine the best of both worlds. Because these boxes bring plants to eye level, we recommend striking and colour greenery that will provide visual interest.

Not only do they look beautiful and add a flash of greenery to indoor spaces, but indoor have the ability to absorb airborne pollutants and purify the air.

According to the American Society for Horticultural Science, the mere sight of an indoor plant can reduce an office worker’s stress.
