General information
Quote from client:

“I see office planting as an important element of office “Wellness”. Bringing the outside indoors, regular visits from a masseur, a contemplation room and good quality healthy food all form part of this.

Smarkets is a high pressure technology company which needs to operate in an environment that allows creativity to flourish. The new green wall is not only a great focal point for the reception area but also provides humidity, air purification and sound absorption. Working closely with Enterprise Plants from an early stage ensured the installation went very smoothly”

Client fully understands the importance of planting to the environment and especially of green walls.
