5 ways to create a winter wonderland in your business

Choose a showstopping Christmas tree

Decorated Christmas trees provide a welcome sparkle during the winter months. The Journal of Environmental Psychology even found that people who put their Christmas tree and decorations up early tend to be happier and friendlier than those who don’t.

However, finding time to procure and decorate a tree for your business can be time-consuming for employees, taking them away from more-important tasks.

By choosing to rent a fully-decorated Christmas tree, you can bring Christmas to your premises without having to lift a finger.

Decorating your home or workplace for Christmas could not be easier, thanks to the range of decorated Christmas trees offered for rental by phs Greenleaf.  Once you’ve chosen your tree, expert technicians will deliver and install it in your premises. Then after Christians, they’ll return to take the tree away.

Brighten up your exterior

Many people associate colourful flowers with spring and summer, but Winter Hanging baskets can be used to brighten your building’s exterior during the colder months.

As well as using flowers like Viola in your winter hanging baskets, you could incorporate hardy herbs and shrubs to create a long-lasting display.

If you’re not green fingered, phs Greenleaf can work with you to create hanging baskets that suit your environment and brand personality. A highly skilled team will create and deliver your baskets. They’ll even undertake regular maintenance visits to ensuring your baskets always look their best.

Don’t turn your car park into an ice rink

Save the ice skating for the official winter wonderland ice rinks.

HSE reports that slips and trip accidents are more common in autumn and winter.This is due to wetand cold weather.

Icy pathways and car parks are a recipe for disaster, so gritting is essential during the winter to keep everyone safe.

phs Greenleaf offers flexible and cost-effective gritting services for businesses across the whole of the UK. There is no set charge for the gritting season, you only pay for visits attended, with all visits triggered by real-time weather reporting.

Beat the winter blues

Many people experience low moods during winter in the UK. But interior planting can be used to provide a welcome boost to the moods of your employees and customers.

By adding interior plants to your premises you can increase the wellbeing and comfort of building users. Interior planting is also proven to reduce levels of fatigue by 38%, while clearing toxins from the air and creating a hospitable environment to work and visit.
