BC Plant Benefits

Live Local. Buy Local.

It’s no surprise BC’s growers are passionate about growing quality plants that thrive in BC. In fact, BC growers have generations worth of plant knowledge, bringing you plants that are easy to maintain and less likely to be affected by pest disease.

Not only are BC grown plants happier in our environment, but they also provide a natural home for BC’s bugs, critters, and other plant life that support a healthy ecosystem.

Admit it, You’re Feeling Better Already.

Imagine that you are walking through an outdoor garden. Picture all the colours and textures from the plants that surround you. Are you feeling more relaxed? Perfect.

Gardens are natural healers, and the presence of plants can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and calms nerves.  Gardening promotes healthy eating habits among children and adults, encourages an active lifestyle, and provides oxygen rich air. All of which are important to living a happy and healthy life.

Chill Out. Plants Are Cool.

Did you know that having plants in your community can reduce your energy costs? By placing large leafy trees on the south and west sides of your home, they will provide shade in the summer and still allow for the sun to shine through during the winter months. All you need is three trees in order to reduce energy costs that are related to air-conditioning by 30%.

Clean, Freshens & Deodorizes.

Air is the one thing that we all need to live.

Luckily for us, plants breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Can you believe that two mature trees can provide a year’s worth of oxygen for a family of 4? Even if you don’t have a yard, plants grown inside the home act like filters and improve the air quality that you breathe every day.

Plants Are Green. Money’s Green.

Unfortunately a money tree doesn’t exist BUT plants can increase the level of green in your garden and in your wallet.

Business can prosper by incorporating plants into their décor and by being in a well-treed area. Customers will travel farther, shop longer, and spend up to 12% more  in a business that invests in vegetation. By having plants in the workplace productivity, employee morale, and creativity will increase amongst staff. By having a plant on your desk you will increase your productivity and increase your possibility for getting a promotion.

A professionally landscaped yard may increase your home’s re-sale value by up to 20% with a recover value of 100-200%. Even by having trees in the yard, your property values can be enhanced by  5-20%.
