Residential Plant Care
Ever have trouble keeping that beautiful palm tree alive? Do you love plants but don’t seem to have the time to properly care for them? Let the experts at Growing Roots take the guesswork out of plant care and create a beautiful and comfortable home environment for you.
Growing scientific evidence has proven that flowers and plants have a beneficial impact on our state of mind and emotions. In today’s stress-filled, high-tech, fast-paced world, in has become increasingly important for us to do all we can to find ways to relax; body, mind and soul. Nature has always provided us with a simple way to improve our emotional health and over-all well being. However, with little time for those long walks in the park, and with spending increasing amounts of time in the office and home, indoor plants and trees can provide us with a simple way to help moderate our moods and provide us with cleaner indoor air.
Indoor plants have an impact on quality of life, in general. Quality of life becomes an important issue for older adults who will reside in retirement facilities. An article published in the American Society for Horticultural Science journal HortTechnology examines the impact of indoor gardening in regards to quality of life in assisted-living facilities. The results of the study, conducted by Claudia C. Collins and Angela M. O’Callaghan, find that an activity as simple as caring for a houseplant can have very positive effects on a resident’s happiness.
