Lighting for Interior Landscape Design

Lighting for Interior Landscape Design

Light is the most critical requirement for any interior landscape installation. Proper lighting will assure healthy and attractive indoor greenery. For this reason, we published a white paper on the subject, the Planterra Lighting Guide for Interior Landscape Design.

 

The guide provides insight on light measurement, natural and artificial light parameters and sources, acclimatized foliage, plant placement, geographic considerations, benefits to plants and people and more. It also includes a list of plants based on their tolerance to low-, medium- and high-light environments.

 

This white paper was written as a tool for architects, landscape architects, interior designers and other professionals looking to create environments where both plants and people can thrive. The comprehensive guide is also designed to help the reader optimize client investments in and the longevity of the interior landscapes they design.
