Taris Biomedical

113 Hartwell Ave

Lexington MA

Taris Biomedical, at 113 Hartwell Ave., Lexington MA, is a company developing targeted new therapies for millions of patients suffering from difficult-to-treat bladder diseases.

We used a number of European style tall square and cylinder planters throughout the office. This file cabinet looks amazing with this cute tabletop set of arboricola plants, arranged in a row. These are approximately 18″ high.

These types of planters are great for raising the plants to eye level and making them fill the space more adequately. We’ve incorporated a lot of heights and sizes throughout the facility at Taris, depending on the light levels and space requirements for each plant.

Here we have an arboricola tree in a tall planter, with flowering bromeliad plants around the base.

This style of tall square planter is very versatile, since it comes in both tabletop, large floor plant (24″ tall) and extra large floor plant (36″ tall) sizes.

TESTIMONIAL:

Andrea Callahan our contact at Taris Biomedical: “I liked the design. We have a lot of variety in the style of planters, and it makes everything look really modern and matches our furnishings well.”

Massive, 7 foot tall Umbrella Plants, like this one shown here in an office building lobby in Lexington, is a perfect way to dress up corporate building lobbies. These plants can be installed at one height and with regular pruning, fertilizer, and meticulous care can grow to huge heights, easily filling lobbies with high ceilings.

Lexington Battle Green

Clients we service in Lexington are located between Waltham and Burlington, two of our most busiest office plant routes. It’s easily accessible off of Route 128, and our interior plant clients are heavily concentrated in the Bedford Road/Hartwell Avenue area.

As a town, Lexington is probably one of the most famous Revolutionary War sites in Massachusetts. Lexington was first settled circa 1642 as part of Cambridge. What is now Lexington was then incorporated as a parish, called Cambridge Farms, in 1691. This allowed them to have a separate church and minister, but were still under jurisdiction of the Town of Cambridge. Lexington was incorporated as a separate town in 1713. It was then that it got the name Lexington. How it received its name is the subject of some controversy. Some people believe that it was named in honor of Lord Lexington, an English peer. Some, on the other hand, believe that it was named after Lexington (which was pronounced and is today spelled Laxton) in Nottinghamshire, England.

Picking The Wrong Plant For Your Office

June 17th, 2019|

It looked great in the store!

A month or so later…

This indoor Majesty Palm has fronds that are turning brown and dying. No surprise.

Picking The Wrong Plant

So to follow up on the post I did a couple of days ago about the importance of picking the right plant, I’d like to follow up with a post on what not to do: picking the wrong plant for your office.

Office plants are one of those things that people tend to be pretty cavalier about; “How hard can it be?”. Even people without green thumbs feel no hesitation whatsoever just heading down to Home Depot or Lowe’s and grabbing a bunch of plants that strike their fancy. Many times, they end up choosing the wrong plants for the lighting, space, and airflow they have, or, in the case with the plant on the left, they effectively get sold a “lemon”.

The plant on the left is called a Majesty Palm. I chose it because it’s the most common crappy plant stocked by both Home Depot and Lowes and pawned off on unsuspecting office personnel and homeowners.

Many people think picking indoor plants for your office is easy and anyone can do it. Sorry, but they’re simply wrong. I say this after working with plants in offices for over 20 years, and having people that contacted us for a quote, ultimately deciding to do it on their own, and then contacting us again 6 months later to come save their plants after their epic failure to take care of them on their own.

Majesty Palms grow outdoors in Florida, they grow aggressively (quickly) and they can be mass produced by nurseries for cheap. Accordingly, they get shipped to Home Depot and Lowes stores nationwide and marketed as a “houseplant.” They’re simply not. There is not enough humidity and sunlight to support this species indoors, even in Florida indoors they have a tough time, and in 99 out of 100 times the fronds end up browning and dying after a month or so, and the unlucky recipient is left thinking that “gee, it just didn’t do well” when in fact it should never have been marketed as a houseplant to begin with.

“But Home Depot guarantees their plants, if it dies I just bring it back and get a new one” is what I hear a lot. Uh huh….That’s dandy. How many folks do you think bother to stuff a 6 foot dead Majesty Palm back into their car and haul it to Home Depot to get a refund? Exactly. How many times are you going to stuff that replacement palm into your car and return it?  They count on very few people actually bothering to return plants, which is why they stock those particular species.

The other thing about these big box stores is they often get shipped the runts of the litter from the nurseries we buy from. There are certain specifications for the Interior Landscape industry in order for a plant to meet sizing standards; an example being a typical 10″ diameter Mass Cane plant has 3 stalks, being staggered at 3 feet, 2 feet, and 1 foot respectively. Those Mass Canes in nurseries in Florida that are underdeveloped, runty, or sickly get sold to big box stores like Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowes. In other words, we (Interior Landscapers) won’t buy them, so they get sent to mass retail locations to be purchased by you, the unsuspecting do-it-yourselfer office plant purchaser.

On top of all that, the plants are stored in the worst of conditions–poor lighting, jammed together in the plant department without adequate spacing between–just asking for insect and disease infestations.

Anyway, I could go on and on. If your intent is to purchase a couple of plants for your home or office, then this avenue is fine, just be sure to research what plant is best for the lighting and space you’re intending on placing it in. But if you’re about to invest hundreds of dollars in foliage for your office, don’t get it from a big box store. Purchase it from a quality Interior Landscaper who can recommend the right plants for the lighting and airflow in your office, and who will also guarantee their plants with regular service and free replacements, just in case anything goes wrong.

Picking The Right Plant For Your Office

June 13th, 2019|

Picking The Right Plant

Interior Landscaping often requires equal expertise in design elements as well as horticulture. Many times it’s not only about picking the right plant from a botanical standpoint–in terms of what plant works best given the lighting, airflow and humidity for a given office space, but also what plant works best with the overall design, color elements, and nearby furnishings. Added to all of this is the fundamental knowledge of how the plant will adapt to the space as it grows (does it grow up vs. out, is there a nearby vent which will cause it to lose tons it’s leaves from drafts, etc.) and this is why it helps to hire an expert if you’re going to be investing in a large number of plants for your office.

In the picture shown at the left, we selected a Limelight Plant to go in this floor rectangle planter. We selected it because it complimented the artwork directly above, with the plant’s natural chartreuse colored leaves bringing out the same colors in the artwork. This plant also comes in Cane form but this selection would obviously not be the best choice, because it’s tall stalks would cover the artwork.

Limelight plants will stay tight and bushy over time if pruned properly, so this rectangle will continue to maintain it’s original appearance years after being installed.

Many people think picking indoor plants for your office is easy and anyone can do it. Sorry, but they’re simply wrong. I say this after working with plants in offices for over 20 years, and having people that contacted us for a quote, ultimately deciding to do it on their own, and then contacting us again 6 months later to come save their plants after their epic failure to take care of them on their own.

In pretty much all of these cases, people choose the wrong plants when they procure them on their own, either the wrong lighting requirements for what they have, the wrong care requirements (some plants are WAY fussier than others), the wrong shape (as I mentioned, over time growing out rather than up, and being unusable in the original space they were intended for), the wrong size (they pick a plant way too big for the pots they bought) or the wrong species altogether (some plants such as majesty palms, popular at Home Depot and Lowes, are not suited for indoors and brown and die within a month after purchasing them).

Honestly, I tell people, even if you’re not going to use us as your office plant company, then by all means, use one of our competitors, just don’t try to do it on your own. Picking the right interior plants is one of those things that looks easy but there’s a lot more to it than you would think.
