Garden Streets incorporated plants to assist Affectiva’s employee health and office layout. Plant visual barriers were placed between desk rows so that employees could enjoy greenery instead of looking at the back of computer monitors. The green barriers also reduced noise and increased privacy.

To save on costs, Garden Streets installed a green wall using mounted planters instead of traditional manufactured systems. Plants were added to conference rooms to better direct employee attention and maintain an organic aesthetic.

As a busy startup, Affectiva opted to use Garden Streets’s monthly office plant services in order to keep the plants healthy and thriving.
