How to Transform Your Office Garden into an Outdoor Workspace
The average American spends about 90% of their time indoors, leading to a feeling of disconnect from the natural world. One way to change that is by turning your office garden into an outdoor workspace and bringing the outdoors in!
What’s more, adding greenery to your workspace has been shown to decrease stress levels and increase creativity- so it could be just what you need for a bit of boost of inspiration at work.
In this article, you’ll find some tips on how you can go about transforming your office garden into an outdoor workspace. Remember: if you’re looking for ways to make your space feel more inviting or creative, try incorporating plants!
But first, what is an outdoor workspace?
1. What is an outdoor workspace?
An outdoor workspace is an office garden transformed into a space you can use to get work done. This workspace could include converting your existing garden into a workplace or adding a workstation to already-existing plants in your office garden.
2. Why is it essential to have one?
While having an indoor workspace is great, research shows that just being around plants can make you happier, healthier, and more productive. If that’s not enough to convince you to get one (or if a garden isn’t possible), then try adding some greenery to your existing outdoor area with PureModern’s Commercial Planters to create your outdoor workspace.
3. How can you create your outdoor workspace?
Here are some examples of how you can transform your office garden into an outdoor workspace, including plants, furniture, and lighting arrangements. You can use these ideas as inspiration:
- Add a Desk
To create your outdoor workspace, you might want to start with adding some storage such as a desk or bench so that nothing is too cluttered and you can spread out. A desk also adds a functional element to your outdoor workspace.
- Add Storage for Files or Supplies
Another thing that you might want in your office garden is storage, which will help keep it organized and clutter-free! You can choose from tons of options such as cabinets, drawers, plant stands, or crates to store files, books, and magazines.
- Add Seating
You may want to add some seating such as a chair, bench, planter stool-the possibilities are endless and will be different for every space. Adding seats is also a great way to personalize your workspace!
- Add Plants!
The last thing you’ll need to do is add some plants, though this step might take the longest depending on the size of your garden space and how many plants you have! Start small by grouping different plants together in clusters and remembering that you can mix and match different Modern Botanical shapes, sizes, and plant varieties.
It’s essential to take some time for yourself and find ways to relax and de-stress, especially when you’re at work. One way that can help is by turning your office garden into an outdoor workspace! Whether it be through adding a desk or bench with storage space or just planting some plants around your existing area, there are plenty of ways you can make this happen. More greenery in the workplace equals fewer stress levels and increased creativity.
