Our Sustainable Vision

Did you know artificial “plantscaping”… is regarded as having a positive environmental impact through the reduction in water consumption & harmful pesticides required for both the end user and in nursery production & decorative flower farming?

… reduces carbon footprints by minimizing transportation needs of regular service & replacement of live plants & florals?

… wherever possible, we seek products and services identified as environmentally preferable in our internal practices and our
product manufacturing.
