3 benefits of office planter boxes

Of course, we all know there’s so much more to office plants than just the great aesthetics. An office plant box bursting with healthy greenery can provide the usual benefits of indoor plants for offices.

Planter boxes are easily contained

Indoor planter boxes provide a tidy way to introduce a lush green feeling to any office. They can be easily cleaned around, and their contained designs keep soil and water away from paperwork and electronics. Planters offer the chance to build great soil structure which means less water is needed, and some planters are even self-watering.

Planter boxes support more greenery

Because office planter boxes are generally larger than pots or hanging baskets, they can easily hold multiple plants to offer an abundance of greenery. Not only is this visually appealing, but it can also multiply the health and wellbeing benefits of plants in the office. This makes planters an ideal choice even where there’s limited space.

Planter boxes can screen and guide traffic

Whether long or short, used together or separately, indoor planter boxes can be used to demarcate different zones and direct foot traffic in a gentle way. With the right plant choice they can be used very effectively for visual screening, to reduce noise in a busy office space, and to create a pleasant sense of privacy in meeting areas.

Planter boxes to suit every space

As a leading provider of planter boxes in Sydney, The Plant Man can customise plant selections, fill office plant boxes and maintain plants.

Floor Planter

Floor planter boxes have a classic single pot style and are placed, as you might expect, directly on the floor. They’re usually round or square-shaped, and can be placed alone in smaller spaces or grouped together in an eye-catching arrangement. The Plant Man can style floor planter boxes to create the effect you’re after, whether it’s privacy screening or a verdant welcome to the office.

Rectangular Planter Boxes

As their name suggests, rectangular planter boxes are larger rectangular receptacles that can hold a row of plants. These containers are fantastic for courtyards, as a green addition to plain walls or as a divider in larger rooms. We can complement plants with different types of mulch to dramatically change the style of the set, from classic white mulch to white stones for a clean, contemporary look.

Trough Planter

Trough planters provide a deep-seated basin for indoor plants that can be styled in a range of ways. They’re perfect if you’re looking to divide up a larger area, create a sense of privacy for a meeting space, or simply want a modern potted plant option that will stay steady when chairs or vacuum cleaners come up against it. ]Our trough and window boxes in Sydney are widely enjoyed in countless workplaces as they open up so many opportunities for creativity.

Desk Planter

These planters are smaller versions of the planter box that fit onto a desktop. They can really liven up the plain, artificial environment of cubicles and desks, creating a fresh effect that energises employees. While the right plants will depend on your space, we’ll often advise pairing a desk planter with plant species like Zanzibar Gem or the Pothos that are known for their air purifying qualities.

Joinery Planter

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 natural colour of the plants and soften the cold, hard lines of modern offices. These planters can look great set against corners and walls, and they offer real flexibility when it comes to plant selection.

Raised Planter

Also known as elevated garden planters, raised planter boxes provide a higher setting for plants. Elevated and raised planter boxes may include storage underneath or they may take the form of a planter box on sturdy legs. Because these boxes bring plants to eye level, we recommend striking and colourful greenery that will provide visual interest.
