Absolutely. We often recommend artificial planting for high-traffic areas or where access for providing the right care for living plants may be limited. Our team have a vast amount of experience in specifying and installing artificial plant and flower solutions and can work with you to find the right options for your venue.
Simply because every project we undertake is bespoke to you. Our prices depend on the type of planting, whether you require containers or a specially designed installation method or ongoing servicing and maintenance of your plants. Our design consultants can work with you to create the best planting solution for you and work within your budget.
Firstly, thank you for considering Benholm Group for your upcoming project. Our dedicated team are here to create innovative, planting solutions that push the boundaries of planting design and offer you the wow-factor for your space. We are happy to work directly with you or with your chosen design team, architect or facilities manager. We recommend bringing Benholm into the process as early as possible – we can offer free CPD training to enhance understanding of designing with plants, plus we can recommend the best installation solutions to keep plants healthy and vibrant. We begin each project with an initial discussion over the phone to understand your needs, which we follow up with a site visit or by consulting the drawings of the space. Our talented design team will then get to work creating a bespoke idea for your brief. We will present this to you and collaborate with you until we have a final solution. Benholm are then able to expertly install the design and can even maintain planting on an ongoing basis to ensure plants are kept lush and healthy.
Our planting solutions are designed to keep plants healthy, but like all living things they need regular attention to stay as lush and vibrant as they day they were planted; especially in interior environments. We recommend taking advantage of Benholm’s maintenance service which includes all the watering, pruning, cleaning, etc. the plants need as well as the free replacement of any dead, ailing or even overgrown plants. A dedicated Benholm technician will visit your premises on a regular basis and take full care of the plants so you can enjoy them every day.

Moss walls are becoming increasingly popular as a highly versatile, low-maintenance, interior green wall option. Benholm’s bespoke Nordik Moss walls are in high demand among private customers, corporate clients, and leading UK interior designers who want something spectacular for their space.
These preserved moss walls are seen as a best of ‘both option’. They don’t grow, so require less care than traditional green walls, but still offer similar biophilic benefits. Plus, our preserved Nordik Moss walls can be coloured to give your unique focal point even more impact. The design possibilities are near limitless. So your ideal green wall, might not be green after all!
Enviroculture by Benholm is a peat-free, sustainable, planting system which directly contributes towards the protection of our natural peatlands. By using Enviroculture your organisation is demonstrating a responsible attitude towards the protection of our planet. The system does not require soil or compost for the plants to grow and is therefore totally soil-free as well as peat-free. It is a very clean system, free from soil-borne pest and bacteria, and has a positive effect on the environment. Speak to us today about incorporating Enviroculture in your planting requirements today.
Living, green walls are an increasingly popular choice for interior walls – As ethical as they are aesthetically pleasing, the plants in your green wall actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere, enriching the air with oxygen. Our global network of growers gives us a range of plants to choose from that allows us to design green walls to complement any setting and industry. We offer bespoke green wall design and installation across Scotland and the wider UK. We provide a full design service taking into account the climatic conditions (including specifying supplementary lighting) and the overall desired effect. If your environment isn’t suitable to keep living plants healthy and fresh, then we can provide an artificial green wall. The authentic look and feel of our artificial plants make it possible to bring the striking visual effect of artificial green walls to spaces where living green walls would not survive. This makes them ideal for high traffic areas, low light environments, or anywhere difficult to access for maintenance. Just as with all our artificial green walls use the most natural looking and durable products available to ensure a truly special look that requires no special care or attention. Our talented team can help design the perfect solution for your space from walls to ceilings. Get in touch today.
Of course. Please visit the ‘projects’ and ‘gallery’ sections of our website to see a range of planting installations that we have completed including restaurants, gift shops, hotels, global offices, and special events. We regularly update our website with recent projects and images to demonstrate our expertise and unique designs.
Including plants in your interior actively contributes to cleaner air by converting CO2 into oxygen and by converting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into compounds which the plants then feed on to remain healthy. Research shows that plants have a positive effect on the way people feel, they help to create a feeling of vitality, lifting spirits and creating happiness. Lush, healthy plants can make people feel better. Plants are also seen to have a positive effect in the hospitality and spa industry. For instance, those who go to a spa want to leave feeling relaxed, plants can enhance their experience resulting in them leaving calm. Plants bring so many benefits to their environments and the people in them, but noise reduction properties are less widely known as they also absorb, diffract and reflect sound…as plants are multi-layered they help deflect and absorb sound from the room.
Adding plants in your space is an effective way of creating a focal point that also helps to improve the health and well-being of everyone inside. To discover more about Benholm Group or call us on 01324 861 300 or email email@example.com.
It depends on what planting you use. If we use our Nordik Moss then this doesn’t require watering as it is a preserved product. With living plants we can incorporate an irrigation system to provide just the right levels of water for its environment and of course our maintenance team can visit regularly to ensure plants are kept at their healthy and vibrant best. Of course, sometimes living plants won’t be the best solution, and in those cases we can use our range of artificial plants – which are so realistic whilst being almost maintenance-free.
Benholm Group provide an ongoing plant maintenance service. Our talented team of technicians will visit your premises regularly to ensure your plants and flowers always look vibrant and healthy. High quality maintenance produces plants which look attractive, vibrant, healthy, and thriving and this has been proven to have a positive effect on staff and visitors. If you have any questions about your office plant maintenance, please call us on 01324 861 300 to speak with a member of our maintenance service team or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes. A rental package is an ideal solution for a lot of organisations because it removes any need for a significant initial capital outlay and instead spreads out your costs over the term of the contract – normally three years. It also provides the flexibility to change and update the specification should your space change in the future and you’re not stuck with the planters you bought a few years earlier. A rental package includes our full maintenance service to ensure your displays are always in peak condition. Rental is normally invoiced quarterly in advance.
Biophilic design is the incorporation of nature and natural elements into the ‘built’ environment. You’ve probably already felt the benefits of it without even realising. It can be found anywhere from offices and hotels to the interior design and external landscaping of people’s homes or public spaces. We work with businesses, architects and interior designers across the UK to bring biophilic benefits to the inhabitants of their buildings.
This all depends on the planting specification and complexity of the installation. Most installation are carried out within 4 or 5 weeks from order but sometimes it can be quicker if it includes items we have in stock. However, our administration team will keep in touch with you so that you know where everything is up to and when to expect our team on site. If you have a specific deadline for an opening etc. we will always do everything we can to meet your timescales.
Living walls are stunning, living, changing vertical landscapes but they do require consistent, intelligent and careful maintenance to ensure they thrive. Benholm Group are proud to design, create and install living walls across Scotland and the UK. To give you an added peace of mind, we also provide maintenance services and surrounding lighting if needed.
When enhancing your business with plants, you want to protect your investment. Whether indoor or outdoor, real plants can require the right care and attention, delivered at optimal intervals. But we know your attention has enough demands already. That’s why we have a range of care plan options for all your plants on site. So, whether you’d like to buy your plants outright and add on a maintenance plan, or you’d prefer a rental package of plants and maintenance to avoid a capital outlay, we have the flexibility to meet your needs. With free replacement plants should any ever need refreshing. Please call us on 01324 861 300 to speak with a member of our maintenance service team or email email@example.com.
