Interior Plant Maintenance
We offer weekly interior plant care visits to ensure the long-term health of your plants.

Pruning, cleaning, and individualized plant care.

- Disease and pest management. Our team will detect any signs of disease or pests, and present you with options for treatment.
- Design. We will work with our clients as their space grows to ensure their plants grow with them.
- Plant Warranty. While under our care any plant purchased from and installed by Greenery NYC is fully warrantied, and replacements are free.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
The Greenery Way
Our staff is highly trained in the difficulties of keeping plants flourishing in difficult environments. We're not just sending someone around with a watering can once a week. We invest in our team members through continuing education, testing, workplace check-ins, and constant communication. Team members are versed in the intricacies of horticulture, pest management, automation and indoor lighting, and while this may seem like overkill to other companies, we can confidently attest that the results speak for themselves.
- Smart Design - By matching plants with the conditions they need to thrive, we minimize the need for replacements.
- Automation - Integrating proprietary irrigation systems and custom lighting increases plant health while decreasing operational costs.
- Weekly Visits - Increased frequency allows us to get ahead of issues, and tend to a wider variety of plant life.
- Direct Potting - We plant roots into soil, as nature intended. This allows your plants to grow more vigorously, take in fresh nutrients - and become larger and more valuable over time.
- Plant Warranty - All plants provided by Greenery NYC are warrantied for the duration of our care.
- Top Horticulturalists - Our rigorous hiring and training standards ensure only the best horticultural care for our clients. Our team is a group of plant passionate, career-driven people striving for excellence in all they do.
