How Houseplants Improve Health and Mood
From snake plants to ivy, houseplants are one of the most versatile ways to improve your health and mood (not to mention they can bring life to most any space). Here are a few ways in which certain plants can help you feel better both mentally and physically in your at-home environment:
Improving Air Quality
Many houseplants are known for their air purifying qualities. Dust, mold, and other air pollutants are all things that can make the air you breath less-than healthy for you. Plants such as Snake Plants, Boston Ferns, Peace Lilies, English Ivy, and Spider Plants all neutralize toxic elements that you may be breathing in in your home.
Have you ever smelled something that instantly made you less tense and more relaxed? Some houseplants are useful not only for their looks, but for the soothing or energizing scents they give off. To reduce stress, try lavender or get a rosemary plant to help improve concentration or memory. Either way, your house will smell and feel great in no time!
Humans have been using plants to help remedy many ailments for centuries, and there are plenty that you can grow in your own home! Aloe Vera, for example, can help treat burns, frostbite, and is overall good for moisturizing and hydrating the skin using the gel-like substance that is found inside of the leaves. You can also grow almost any herb in your home and use their unique health benefits to enhance your meals!
As always, be sure to research any plant before you bring it into your home, especially if you have children or pets who may be allergic. The folks at Simply Green hope you will find the perfect houseplant for your home in the new year!

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
