Peabody Essex Museum, Salem MA

True bamboo plantings like these can always be challenging to keep alive indoors. We’ve had great success for many years now maintaining these large specimen trees for the museum. We relocated these trees to a sunnier location within the space to insure their continued success.

We installed new specimen Dracaena Tarzan trees, with character branching, into the main café seating space in the museum. The interesting woody trunks on these large trees add texture to this space that is architecturally casted in sharply contrasted light forms from overhead skylights. These Tarzan trees will continue to grow creating beautiful accents in this large space with high ceilings.

 

Brickstone Properties, Andover MA

The newly renovated lobby areas at Brickstone Square have taken on a new look. Here we feature pedestal square planters in Pearlized Silver finish utilizing upright Dracaena Lind trees with bright under plantings. This wall area used to have a built-in planter which was removed as new paint and carpets were installed. The new design showcases three groups of plants creating a green vertical backdrop under overhead spotlighting. Setting the containers on slight angles with clean lines gives this area a simple yet modern look.

This spring we brought Corporate Drive alive with vibrant colored annual bulbs planted in the newly installed sustainable ironclad planters. Located at each entrance of the campus the bright tulips and daffodils really welcome in the spring, highlighting growth and change of the season, offering a pleasant breath of relief in overcoming the snowy winter. Tall curly willow branches give these displays extra energy reaching toward the sky creating a textured backdrop for the flowers.

 

Portland Jetport, Portland ME

The car rental center at the Portland Jetport had a large installation accomplished. We used the Jetport’s existing concrete planters and installed new Ficus Alii trees surrounded by Schefflera Arboricola bushes and colorful bromeliads. The planters were lined to create a water tight barrier and were built up with platforms to raise the trees to their proper planting levels. These trees create a wonderful atmosphere for both the employees and public utilizing this building. These large trees create a buffer from sunlight piercing through the glass windows and also regulate the temperature and humidity levels within the space.

These three Earth bowls filled with succulents are here where an escalator used to be. The escalator was covered over by this wooden counter space. The large expanse of wood needed something to break up the field of view. Earth bowls were a great solution. A stairwell still exists behind the display and the hallway where this picture was taken leads to the Jetport administration area. Many people will now view these lovely and interestingly textured plantings while making their way through. Overhead skylights support the plantings, they also cast natural light which warms the purple and ruby foliage of the ‘Trios Star’ Stromanthe plants.
