Commercial Holiday Decor

Commercial holiday decor blossoming all around town is one of the highlights of the year for many people. GreatScapes & More spends the first nine months of the year preparing to get Virginia ready for the holidays, so you won't have to. We know that you want your employees and customers to be greeted with lovely holiday decor, but decorating the lobby of your office or shop (inside or out) is probably not at the top of your “to do” list. That’s where we can help. Our commercial design team is ready with some creative ideas to enhance your holiday decor. Our commercial decorators strive to fit both your style and budget – regardless of the commercial space, be it outdoor holiday decor, an office building or a shopping mall.

Commercial holiday decor is overflowing in our warehouse! You can select your favorite ribbons, wreaths, bows and other holiday decor, or you can let us take the lead. Either way, your commercial holiday decor will be in place on time, without stress, and looking fabulous.

If you would like to give plants or floral arrangements as gifts, let us know that too. We would be happy to help.

Commercial Holiday Decor doesn't just melt away after the season has ended. That's another service that we provide to our commercial customers. After the season is over, we can come back, remove your holiday decor and store it in our warehouse for next year.

So give us a call, or email us. We really can make your life easier – during the holidays or during the other 11 months of the year.



"We depend on GreatScapes knowledgeable staff as they guide us through selecting plants and planters for our lobbies to ordering holiday decorations each year. GreatScapes keeps up to date with the latest styles and makes sure whatever they propose for our properties has that extra creativity we are looking for."

Q. My ficus seems to drop leaves all year round. Is there anything wrong?
A. It is normal for a Ficus Tree to drop some leaves. The causes for dropping leaves are many, including a change in the environment, incorrect watering, too little light, pests or a fungus.

Q. Once my Peace Lily blooms, is there any reason I can't cut the flower out?
A. No - and it's a good idea to take them out. The white hooded blooms of the Peace Lily can be enjoyed for weeks or months. When the blooms start to discolor, you then can remove by cutting. Leaving the flowers on for an extended period takes energy away from the plant and causes new leaves to be smaller.

Q. The leaf ends of my Peace Lily are turning brown. What should I do?
A. You can trim the tips but leave a small end of tissue. This provides a barrier to help prevent further damage of healthy tissue.

Q. When should I take my plants outside?
A. According to the Farmer's Almanac the average last frost in Virginia is mid-May. This is hard to believe. Ideally you should not take your plants outside until then.

Q. How much sun and how much water does my orchid need?
A. Orchids thrive in bright light. If in bright light, water them thoroughly once or twice a week depending on light levels. If in low light, water them every other week. Utilize good drainage and never leave orchids sitting in water.

Q. Should I forget about attempting to get my poinsettia to re-bloom?
A. If you are interested in getting your poinsettias to re-bloom, consider the following:

  • After the holidays continue to water your poinsettia the same way as before the holidays.
  • Repot into a container about an inch wider and set the poinsettia outside once night temperatures average 55 degrees or above
  • In early April, prune the poinsettia to about 8 to 10 inches. At the end of May you should see vigorous growth.
  • Prune during the summer to keep plant bushy, do not prune past September 1st.
  • Keep the plant in indirect or filtered light and fertilize every 2 to 3 weeks
  • In October, move the poinsettia indoors to experience long nights. Place the plant in a closet, where there is complete darkness. The plant needs to have 14 hours of darkness and 10 hours of light
  • Continue with the process of placing it in the dark, and back into the light for ten weeks

Q. How often should I repot my houseplants?
A. If your plant wilts between normal watering, or if the roots protrude from the drainage holes or the plant shows little or no growth, it is probably time to re-pot. Typically, young and fast-growing plants need re-potting every six months, older ones every few years.

Q. My office doesnít have a lot of natural light. Will plants thrive with artificial light?
A. Yes. There are a number of plants that will do just fine, although they may not grow as quickly. We would suggest you try Pothos, Heart Leaf Philodendrons, Snake Plants, or Peace Lilies. Indoor plants under artificial lights donít require as much water or fertilizer. Contact US for additional plant options for low light areas.

Q. How frequently do I need to fertilize my houseplants?
A. It's a good idea to fertilize your houseplants in the Spring and Summer only. Follow the directions on the label and apply as recommended.

Q. Should I be watering my houseplants from the top or should they sit in a saucer?
A. Itís probably easier for most homeowners to water from the top. Whichever way you choose, be consistent. When you water from the top, water thoroughly so that a little water comes out at the bottom. Apply enough water to moisten the entire soil volume plus a little extra. Indoor plants are usually placed in saucers to hold the excess water that drains from the bottom of the pot. If the plant is left standing in this water for too long, root rot, salt injury, and generally poor plant performance can be expected. If there is still excess water in the saucer a day later, discard the remaining water. Consider the possibility of adding some gravel to the saucer so that the plant doesnít sit in the excess water.
