Let’s be clear from the start – at Parker Road, we love all things greenery! Whether it be stunning, lush living plants or the most realistic artificial greenery you’ve ever seen, we believe that each has its own purpose when thoughtfully selected for each individual project.
According to a study by the University of Sydney, science shows that indoor plants:
Reduce indoor air pollution
Reduce workplace illness
Reduce sick-leave absences
Reduce stress and negativity
Do not create unhealthy mould problems
Raise performance & productivity
Improve job satisfaction
Enhance business image with potential clients
Improve school performance & patient wellbeing
Contribute to meeting at least 75% of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) criteria
Many of these factors can be achieved through the use of living plants, artificial plants or a combination of the two.
The real question here though is why living plants would be selected over artificial plants and vice versa. The short answer is while there’s just *something* about living plants, artificial plants allow us to push the boundaries of greenery design.
Living plantings are the perfect solution for use within office space tambour units where employees can enjoy not only the environment, but the health benefits live plants provide. And when purchased with an ongoing maintenance program, such as ours (read more here), you can rest assured the plants will remain fresh and healthy without having to lift a finger.
Artificial Greenery and florals can be installed in spaces and locations live plants are not a viable solution, such as high elevations and combined with ambient lighting. A mess-free and low-maintenance solution, the Parker Road team would recommend our incredibly life-like faux greenery be used in commercial spaces like shopping centres, restaurants and event spaces.
