Check Out Our New Digs!

We’ve moved! Check out this video of our new 6,000 square-foot warehouse! We’re loving this new space and our plants are, too! They are thriving in the new, spacious facility.  

  Office Indoor

  PLANTation Services is growing and we outgrew our previous space. After searching for the perfect spot, we have landed at 18305 Lawson Road in Little Rock, which used to be home to a local body shop.

  Our construction began in November of 2017 and we have officially moved in as of March 16! If you’ve ever moved locations of your home or business, you know it is not simple, but it’s been exciting each step of the way. We love the large warehouse that provides us organized space for our plants and supplies. Our new office area provides ample space for our team to grow and a full kitchen for our Friday morning breakfasts. Not only were the existing structures a perfect clean slate for conversion to our new home, but we are also situated on more than 8 acres which means we won’t outgrow this home!

To Rent or to Buy: That is the Question!

To Rent or to Buy: That is the Question! At PLANTation Services, we value flexibility. That’s why we offer our clients the opportunity to rent or buy their plants and planters. We are frequently asked if one option is better than the other. We thought we would take a moment and compare your options and help you make an informed decision. Wall plants in office Buying plants outright may seem daunting for some people, particularly if you’re managing a large facility that calls for a large plantscape. Many businesses operate on a fiscal calendar, and every budget works differently. If you have the money available in your budget, it might make more sense to purchase the plants and containers upfront. This would result in a monthly fee that would just be for the guaranteed care of the plants.

If your budget doesn’t allow for a large one-time purchase, perhaps renting the plants and decorative planters is a better option. Renting will result in a larger monthly payment, rather than a large up-front expense. Office plants Another reason that our clients sometimes choose the rental option over the purchase is for flexibility. If you chose the rental option, this gives you the ability and option to change out styles and colors after initial term of the contract. If your team moves office spaces or undergoes a remodel, it’s as simple as renting a different planter. We also offer the option of renting the plants and purchasing the containers if your budget falls somewhere in the middle.

Still not sure which direction is right for you? Give our Green Team a call at (888) 821-5770. Our dedicated team of plant professionals will talk through your decision and help design, install and maintain the perfect plantscape for your space.

Living Wall Installations: Plants Go Up!

Visually defying gravity, plants walls are stunning installations of living art. This fresh look at plant design is inspired by natural occurrences that have been beautifying walls for thousands of years. Ferns, vines, shrubs and trees naturally take hold and grow in the crevices and pockets of cliffs, waterfalls, or in the mortar of brick or stone walls.

Living Wall Greenery Living walls are also sometimes called green walls, vertical planting systems, vertical gardens, plant walls or vegetated walls, according to Green Plants for Green Buildings. These plantscapes serve as living art and bring an unexpected design element to any space. As plants grow and bloom, the living wall becomes a constantly changing piece of art.

Living Wall PSI Did you know that a living wall actually naturally filters the air? The plants absorb the carbon dioxides and volatile organic compounds. Studies show that plants can even naturally reduce our stress and make us feel more at ease in our surroundings. A living wall could also be a great addition to an office space. It won’t take up valuable real estate and it will improve the environment for employees, supporting health and productivity.

Our dedicated team of plant professionals will help design, install and maintain the perfect piece of living art for your space.

Message to Budding Horticulturists

May is graduation month and the team at PLANTation Services wanted to take a moment and speak to those soon-to-be post-grads during this special season. If you’re facing graduation and are interested in horticulture, here are some life lessons and tips for your career from our leader, Robin Connell. Robin Connell FFA Robin has been learning about plants since she was a freshman in high school when she was involved in the floriculture team of Future Farmers of America (FFA). After competing in the national FFA competition, she became more aware of the many different aspects of the horticulture industry, including creating commercials for florists, building flower arrangements for a wedding, designing within a budget, tropical plants and more. One part of the competition was landscape design, which opened her mind to a new aspect that interested her. Starting at this point, she learned many valuable life lessons.

1. Begin with what you love. Studying plants came easily for her, so she entered college at Louisiana Tech to pursue a plant science degree. After many classes, some worries and conversations with her advisor, Robin ended up adding a business degree and graduated not knowing where her career would go. Robin Connell 2. Pay attention to what you like and don’t like. In her job search immediately after college, Robin actually stumbled across an ad for a job at PLANTation Services. After meeting with the then-owners who did not have a position available that they felt was a good fit, Robin ended up taking a job at a florist and learned a little bit of everything. From helping out with HR, marketing, sales and even IT, she was able to see the process in detail. Although she quickly learned this was not the best spot for her, Robin gained very valuable on-the-job experience and insight into her passions. Robin Connell Floral Design 3. Don’t give up. Robin reached back out to the PLANTation Services owners to let them know she was in town and wanted to reconnect. The group caught up and the owners ended up offering her a job, although they didn’t exactly have a job description for her.

4. Take advantage of learning experiences and opportunities available. Robin began at PLANTation Services and hit the ground running helping to launch the company’s redesigned website, editing copy, implementing a time-tracking system and documenting many of the daily processes. She found that, although she did not begin by working with plants, her skills were valuable to the company and she took this opportunity to improve the existing infrastructure. When the manager position became available, Robin was offered the promotion. Five years into working at the company, the owners offered Robin the business and she became the owner of PLANTation Services. 5. Be open and pursue your passions. This thread can be woven throughout Robin’s career. She never went into this field thinking she’d own her own business, but she believes her success is partly due to just being happy at work. No matter what she was doing, she found a way to do what made her happy. Robin continues to reap the benefits of enjoying her work and the people she interacts with daily.

At PLANTation Services, our love for plants and excellent service motivates our daily work. We truly do enjoy taking care of our plants and customers each day.

Have Fun at Work Day: PLANTation Services Style

Have Fun at Work Day: PLANTation Services Style

While April 1 might be Have Fun at Work Day for everyone else, we celebrate it every day PLANTation Services! We truly love caring for our green friends and keeping your indoor spaces beautiful and inviting. But, we also care for our own team, too!

PLANTation Services Team

We want to take this opportunity to also celebrate our fearless leader and owner of PLANTation Services, Robin Connell, who works hard to do excellent work and makes it fun to work here. We know there are lots of great places to work, but we think PLANTation Services is someplace really special.

Did you know that almost every Friday morning Robin cooks the staff breakfast? And, we don’t mean just bringing a box of donuts (although we NEVER say no to donuts). She cooks eggs to order, waffles, egg casserole or any other number of baked goodies she can whip up and we get to spend quality time together, enjoying our great team!

Team at Shower

Robin has been at PLANTation Services since 2006, and she quickly moved into management. In fall of 2011, the owners presented Robin with the opportunity to purchase the company. Robin thinks it’s important to work together like a family, especially with such a small staff. In this field, each teammate travels daily and they are hardly ever in the office together – except for Friday mornings.

Team Meeting

That’s part of what makes the breakfast tradition so important! It’s our time to gather together and enjoy our family time. Interested in joining our Green Team? Click here to learn more about Robin’s journey and apply!
