Indoor Peat

If you are looking to stay on trend and bring nature indoors, then indoor moss gardening is the way to go. While this has been used in the traditional Japanese gardens for centuries, moss gardens are now gaining popularity in the rest of the world as well. 

They are known to add to the aesthetics of the decor while also being easy to maintain. Moss requires very little sunlight to grow and just needs to be misted with water occasionally to maintain its moisture. The addition of moss to any indoor space adds life to it while also improving the quality of air through a process called biofiltration, where air pollutants are absorbed by the moss and then returned as clean air in the form of carbon dioxide and water.

At Down to Earth Irrigation and Landscaping, we have trained technicians who specialize in the installation and maintenance of indoor moss gardens and plants. We consider indoor plantscaping both as an art and a science. Therefore, we carefully inspect your indoor space to understand the theme and the customer’s needs. Combining this information with the temperature and climate conditions of your location, we handpick the plants that will bring the most value to your space and place them strategically. We install and maintain moss gardens and indoor plants for both commercial and residential establishments.

Frequently Asked Questions​

Indoor moss gardens involve very low maintenance. They should be misted a few times a week to keep the surface moist and depending on the variety of moss, they might need to be watered. They don’t require much sunlight, so keeping them near the window for a couple hours every morning should suffice. An alternative to this is keeping them under artificial light like white fluorescent light for some time. Like regular plants, they might need to be pruned if their leaves get too big. Trim the leaves for a fuller and healthier re-growth.

The certified horticultural experts at Down to Earth will visit the customer’s property for a consultation to understand their needs and the theme of their interior space. If it is a commercial establishment, we try to understand the unique culture of the business and the design of the property. After taking the location of the company into account and based on the information we gathered during the consultation, we recommend the right indoor plants for the establishment. We also make decisions on the optimal placement of the plants in order to truly bring life to the place while maintaining the aesthetics.

Indoor plants not only bring nature indoors and add life to a space, but they also have a lot of health benefits:

  • They can improve the air quality of your place. Studies have shown that some indoor plants absorb the pollutants in the air and return filtered air.
  • Plants can boost our mood and reduce stress and fatigue.
  • Indoor plants are also known to improve attentivity.
  • Studies have shown that adding plants to one’s workspace increases productivity and creativity.
  • Research has also shown that plants quicken the healing process and improve pain tolerance.
  • Plants reduce respiratory problems due to dry air by increasing the moisture content of the air.
