Decorative and Landscape Planters from OCC Outdoors

What Makes Our Planters Unique?

Plants have a huge impact on how customers and employees feel. Many studies have pointed to this conclusion. Most recently, the Ellison Chair in International Floriculture had posted the findings of a recent University of Michigan study, which had this to say about the effects of plants on people:

Keeping ornamental plants in the home and in the workplace increases memory retention and concentration. The calming influence of natural environments is conducive to positive work environments by increasing a person’s ability to concentrate on the task at hand. (Bisco Werner 1996, Brethour 2007)

The reality is simple: Planters placed strategically at the entrance or on the grounds of your facility make a lasting impression about your business or facility, it’s just human nature. If you’ve been following along with us, you know our very own CEO, Dave Fagel, is an avid gardener! He’s personally hand-picked the several styles of self-watering planters that we offer.

Beyond our selection of self-watering planters, OCC Outdoors also has over 20 styles of decorative Architectural/Commercial indoor and outdoor planters. Coming in 20 different colors and 75 sizes, you’re guaranteed to find a planter that can fit any commercial, municipal, or public site that you manage, be it a building entrance, lobby, courtyard, patio, pool area, garden, sidewalk or rest area.
