A study by Cardiff University’s School of Psychology revealed that having plants in the office can increase productivity among teams. Lead researcher Marlon Nieuwenhuis stated that investing in office landscaping with plants can enhance the quality of life and productivity of employees.

#2 Reduce Stress

Research from Cardiff University’s School of Psychology indicates that having plants in the office can improve team performance. Lead researcher Marlon Nieuwenhuis suggests that investing in office plants can lead to a 15% increase in work output.


The presence of plants in offices can work wonders in promoting a calm and serene atmosphere, ultimately enhancing the concentration levels of team members.

#3 Healthier Air

Headaches, fatigue, and allergies are just a few of the health issues that can arise from pollutants such as formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. In a comprehensive study conducted by NASA, it was discovered that there are 50 different houseplant species that significantly contribute to improving air quality.


Noteworthy performers include rubber plants, Areca palms, lady palms, and bamboo palms. The Snake Plant and Mother-in-Law’s Tongue are particularly renowned for their ability to thrive in various conditions.

The decorative potential of vibrant flowers and lush plants cannot be overstated. They possess the ability to elevate the aesthetic appeal of any area, making it more inviting for both visitors and the individuals who inhabit it.
