This month, we scooped a swathe of trophies at our annual industry awards run by industry body Plants@Work.
It was gratifying to receive recognition for all our work in what was, of course, a difficult year for business. But, although the pandemic hit us with a range of challenges over the last two years, we also had one of our busiest years.
This might seem strange given many of us have had to work from home during the pandemic but, as many of our attitudes to work have changed, so have our ideas of how a workplace should look and feel. Research has shown that many people do want to return to the office, but would like these spaces feel more welcoming and, well, homely.
We’re really proud of our work in helping to create places where people want to work and play. As indoor work and leisure spaces evolve to become more focussed on the wellbeing of occupants and visitors, the role of indoor plants has become more and more important in helping to create happy and healthy places.
Without further ado, here are the Urban Planters planting schemes which stood out for the Plants@Work judges this year.
