In-House Plant Maintenance Can Cost More in the Long-Term

Six months after canceling Growing Room, Inc. services as a cost-saving measure, our client called to re-establish a working relationship.

He said the condition of the plants had deteriorated to the point that visitors and clients were commenting. He feared that this would jeopardize their corporate image and asked us to come in to review the situation to see what could be done.

We found that the majority of the plants were now in poor condition and many needed to be replaced. Aware that our client had budget concerns, we agreed to concentrate on key locations of usage and visibility, such as the reception area, cafeteria, and executive conference rooms. We reduced the overall number of plants and provided a flowering plant in the reception area for needed color.
