Benefits of Office Plants

Office plants do more than just look pretty. Although greenery can add to the atmosphere of an office there are physical benefits to plants. Plants can reduce fatigue, headache, coughing and irritation of the eyes by up to 30% not to mention stress reductions among employees.

Office plants provide oxygen into an environment and scrub toxins from the air. They reduce noise levels, allowing people to work more effectively and efficiently. For those reasons alone, staff absence is reduced and therefore plants offer a great return on your investment.

Here is a list of some of the best plants to enhance your working environment….

Ficus Alii:

This Ficus is rapidly growing in popularity due to its slender dark foliage which makes it a pleasant looking plant. It is less fussy than the usual Ficus benjamina and grows well in well-lit areas. As with all ficus it has some leaf drop but other than that it is a robust plant.

Dracaena Janet Craig:

These plants can tolerate areas with low light levels and are the best plant for removing trichloroethylene. Its dark green foliage and dark green stem make it a unique looking plant.

Dracaena Marginata:

The Marginata has beautiful long green narrow foliage on a slim stem. It is architectural in stature and fits into the smallest of spaces.


Also known as the peace lily, this plant gives a beautiful white flower and has a lush green foliage. It is a great plant for use in desk boll arrangements alongside other plants or just on its own.

Philodendron Scandens:

This plant has a beautiful heart shaped leaf and can be used as an upright tall plant on a moss pole or as a trailing plant used in base planting.


This plant is an asset when used as base planting or in a mixed bowl or trough unit. It has a beautifully variegated foliage to add texture and colour to any planter unit.

Would highly recommend Grasshopper. They were out with us today trimming hedges and filling in a gap where a part of an old hedge had died. They did a super job and the hedge looks great again. They were out with us twice previously pruning a pear tree. We have always found them to be extremely reliable, always come when they say. Also they really know their stuff about plants and trees, have very pleasant staff and the prices are reasonable. Will definitely use again!

Grasshopper deliver a very reliable, consistent and competitively priced service to our development of over 100 houses with landscaped communal grounds. Weekly maintenance of front gardens and common areas is delivered by a friendly team. Always responsive to requests. We have also used Grasshoppers tree surgery services and found that to be very professional and efficient.

Damian transformed my garden in a morning form a bit of a mess into a much more manageable space. I'm delighted with future potential of the garden and look forward to working with Grasshopper services again. Worth mentioning impressive horticultural knowledge and a considered approach to pruning/removing plants. Thank you!

We live part of the time in Dublin and needed someone to look after our raised flower beds when we are away. We hired Grasshopper Services and have been very pleased with their work. Damian is the landscape specialist who works on our property. We are ever amazed at his knowledge of plants and their needs. He does an amazing job trimming and pruning and preparing the gardens for the winter. He also does an excellent job keeping the weeds at bay. We have a walled garden with no back entrance so Damian has to carry the waste through our Victorian rowhouse. He is very conscientious and careful when traversing our home. He is always on time. I would wholeheartedly recommend Grasshopper Services and especially Damian to look after a garden.

So pleased with the work carried out in my overgrown garden by Grasshopper Garden Services. Trees and shrubs were cut back with both care an aesthetic awareness to leave a beautiful and manageable area. The team were very professional and a pleasure to deal with, from the initial enquiry right through to the hard work carried out by Noel and Jason on the day.
