Although cacti and succulents are still a go-to option for a headache-free greening of your work space, you can easily introduce leafy green plants at your desk, given that you choose among those which don’t require a lot of maintenance. The selection of plants below can tolerate a wide range of temperatures and light conditions, and, most of them even thrive in dry soil, which means less frequent watering. So, with that in mind, here are five easy plants that’ll allow you to bring the outdoors in, and also come with air-purification benefits.
THE RISE OF HOME OFFICE WORKERS
A 2017 OddsMonkey report showed that the number of remote workers has increased by nearly a quarter of a million in the UK over the past decade. This increase in the number of work-from-home employees has led to people getting creative with their office space at home, with some even building their workspaces in the garden. Dezeen’s list of top garden studios details how outdoor working spaces can be adapted to suit a wide range of needs, depending on the owner’s preference. The traditional log cabins featured on Screwfix ‘can also be used as log cabin offices,’ according to the home improvement company. Garden offices allow homeowners to separate themselves from the house and work among nature. Most people don’t have room for office space outside, however, this doesn’t mean you can’t have your own private green space in which to work.
