Your Eco Friendly plant people.
Decorfolia is a small, vibrant Interior Landscaping company and at its inception back in June 1976 was one of the forerunners specialising in the Hydroculture growing system. Our team of technicians take personal interest in their clients, often giving advice on plants and gardening in general.
The management team is totally immersed in the grassroot activities of the Company and we are all involved with the day to day tasks ensuring our clients enjoy having healthy, well cared for plant displays.
Since purchasing our own nursery in Sway, we have been able to
implement a number of ecologically sound ideas. We have always
recycled our Leca planting medium, growing pots and plant waste,
but having space here has allowed us to develop our "Green"
- Our greenhouses have been insulated to reduce gas consumption.
- LPG gas tank installed for all our office and greenhouse heating.
- Have set aside land on the nursery to create a wildlife oasis.
- We have dug a wildlife pond to encourage amphibians and reptiles.
- Planted a pollen and nectar rich flower meadow for bees and other insects.
- Carefully worked out vehicle use to maximise every litre of fuel.
- We have an apiary with a number of bee hives.
- Recycle all used materials where physically possible.
- Shred all paper and packaging to add to our purpose built compost bins.
- Ensure that all green waste from monthly contract visits is composted.
- Contract Christmas trees are turned into bark chippings to use around the staff allotments.
