“When I arrived at Grant Park Mall in 1998, I noticed that there were a great number of plants throughout the mall. Over the years, these plants have been well maintained by Arboria. Our plants have always remained healthy and beautiful. Suggestions of different arrangements have also helped the overall effect. Thank you for your dedication.”

A Day in the Life

There’s lots of driving, heavy lifting (up to forty pounds), bending, walking and sometimes talking. Plant Technicians have a set weekly route, and travel from account to account, caring for indoor plants by watering, fertilizing, cleaning, pruning, rotating, and relocating. This is accomplished while maintaining a professional appearance at all times.
