To Rent or to Buy: That is the Question!
At Leafscape, we value flexibility. That’s why we offer our clients the opportunity to rent or buy their plants and planters. We are frequently asked if one option is better than the other. We thought we would take a moment and compare your options and help you make an informed decision.
Buying plants outright may seem daunting for some people, particularly if you’re managing a large facility that calls for a large plantscape. Many businesses operate on a fiscal calendar, and every budget works differently. If you have the money available in your budget, it might make more sense to purchase the plants and containers upfront. This would result in a monthly fee that would just be for the guaranteed care of the plants.
If your budget doesn’t allow for a large one-time purchase, perhaps renting the plants and decorative planters is a better option. Renting will result in a larger monthly payment, rather than a large up-front expense.
Another reason that our clients sometimes choose the rental option over the purchase is for flexibility. If you chose the rental option, this gives you the ability and option to change out styles and colors after initial term of the contract. If your team moves office spaces or undergoes a remodel, it’s as simple as renting a different planter. We also offer the option of renting the plants and purchasing the containers if your budget falls somewhere in the middle.
With our Green Team Guarantee, clients can expect prompt, friendly service visits from a green team member ensuring healthy, vibrant and professionally-cared-for indoor plants regardless of whether they are purchased or rented.
