Live to Silk Conversion
1. Labor costs are increasing especially in California. Labor rates and business rent are the drivers. Ongoing maintenance of commercial interior environments are labor intensive. Thus, maintenance rates are increasing and will continue for the foreseeable future.
2. The quality of artificial plants, trees and silk floral are improving. Manufacturer's of artificial plants are introducing "soft touch", "natural stem" and others that look so real you won't believe they are artificial from a short distance.
3. The return on investment is typically one to two years.
Our design Process:
1. At Pacific Silkscapes we will visit your building with one of our floral designers and take photos of the area.
2. We will present a plan for live plant to silk plant conversion. If you already own your planters, we can reuse them for you to save money or you can replace with new planters. We will work with your requirements and budget and help you reduce live plant maintenance with realistic faux indoor plants.
3. For outdoor plants, we will use UV material, outdoor planters and add rocks and liquid illusions so that maintenance is easy and and the artificial plants will be vandal resistant. Not only will you reduce live plant maintenance, you will have a gorgeous plant year round.
4. Our design consultations are no charge. We will handle installation. If a plant or floral doesn't work, we will replace it for you.
Owner of the building on K street is saving $500.00 per month. ($6000.00 per year, every year!) In addition, the outdoor grasses look better than the live plants and because we used liquid illusion to seal the rocks and grasses, there is less risk of vandalism and destruction.

More and more building owners are converting from live plants to silk plants to reduce ongoing maintenance fees.
They are not only are they saving money, but the silk plants are attractive and realistic.
