Small Installation – Advance Plant Services, Qld
Recently, we had the pleasure of collaborating with Teneriffe Dental, a client seeking to enhance their space with the inclusion of greenery. The project involved the installation of 9 plants, with the initial consultation taking place on November 1, 2022, and the installation completed on November 11, 2022.
Quality was at the forefront when designing the greenery for Teneriffe Dental’s waiting room. Originally, we selected Spathiphyllum Sensations for their visual appeal, but the west-facing windows presented a challenge as they let in intense sunlight. In response, we replaced the Spathiphyllum Sensations with Green Philodendron, known for its resilience in direct sunlight. This adjustment not only preserved the aesthetic vision but also ensured the long-term health of the plants.
Further, Ficus Lyrata was chosen both for their visual appeal and their ability to withstand the heat. Carefully selected matte white pots not only complemented Teneriffe Dental’s interior design but also created a clear partition between the surgery rooms and the waiting area, enhancing the professional atmosphere.
The addition of elegant charcoal pebbles further elevated the overall look. We were granted access to the site outside of regular opening hours, allowing us to execute the installation with precision and minimal disruption.
The job was not without its challenges as watering proved to be a challenge, as is common with inner city clients. The size of the sink proved to be a constraint when it came to filling the watering can. In response, we devised a practical solution, using a cup to efficiently fill the watering can, with plenty of laughs along the way. This small adaptation exemplifies our commitment to delivering quality care, both in small and large installations. As well as our team’s overall attitude to not sweat the small stuff.
Maintenance is a cornerstone of our service. Plants were treated with white and eco oil prior to installation and despite watering limitations, we remain dedicated to providing the best fortnightly care for the plants.
As a result, Teneriffe Dental often promotes their greenery online as part of their overall brand commitment to creating a “warm and welcoming environment” and a “positive and comfortable experience”. Our plants feature frequently in their social media strategy and website imagery and, in their own words, “create a botanical oasis where you can experience serenity on your dental journey”.
In conclusion, our work with Teneriffe Dental showcases our adaptability, creativity, and commitment to excellence, even in small-scale projects. The successful integration of greenery into this dental practice not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also contributes to a welcoming and calming environment for both patients and staff.
Our innovative solutions and dedication to meticulous maintenance ensure that Teneriffe Dental’s interior plantscape will thrive and endure for years to come.
