The Power of Plants
Whether you’re spring cleaning to open up your space or preparing to sell your home, adding plants to your home is a sure way to elevate your environment, and breathe new life into your home this spring.
Studies show that the color green fosters growth, harmony, and freshness. Green is a healing color, soothing for both a home’s inhabitants and for potential buyers on a home tour. Green creates a sense of security. It can also give a feeling of wealth, as green is the color of money.
Plants you Won’t Kill
These plants only need watering about once a week, and are tough enough to grow in many conditions, even low light.
Chinese Evergreen: Best for low-light and removing toxins.
Peace Lilly: Top of NASA’s clean air plants list as it cleans formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene from the air.
Cactus Plant: Best for absorbing old energy and recycling new, clean energy into the air.
Bamboo Plant: Creates energy and may even bring luck.
As for that curb appeal, it’s just as simple to add a few plants and flowers in your yard to that extra welcoming look to your home this spring. Plants like the Butterfly Bush, which adds a lovely purple to your yard, resilient hastas, and vibrant peonies will elevate your home as one that enjoys a fruitful, vibrant life.
