The Actual group is a small marketing and PR consultancy in Hertfordshire, with two small office rooms, a hallway area and kitchen and WC facilities. Flora-tec was given free reign to choose the best plant design scheme for the relatively small and dark work space. There was very little in the way of wall decoration or ornamentation, so the plants were to provide the main aesthetic feature of the offices.
The challenge here was to enliven the offices without overcrowding them. The main office has several desks and floor space is limited, so one tall, narrow Dracaena was placed in a corner and the rest of the colour was provided by exotic desk guzmanias that are changed regularly to ensure that they always look their best. The second office benefits from two fantastic floor-standing plants – a Kentia in one corner and a Philodendron. These fill out small corners, bringing colour to bare white walls. A Ficus Danielle stands in the hallway, bringing colour and shape to a boxy space. The office is a barn conversion, and it suffers from low light due to small windows – so Flora-tec made careful choices to account for this.
The Actual group’s offices benefit from a fortnightly maintenance regime undertaken by our experienced technicians. All plants and
trees are checked for health issues and pests.
‘Flora-tec’s service has made a big impact on our small office! The plants look really impressive, injecting a real sense of style with funky foliage and containers. We also love getting our regular visits from the ‘Flora-techies’, who are always cheerful and professional. They’re great!’
