It probably comes as no surprise that all of us here at Everliving Greenery love plants. Providing office plant rentals to the Chicago area can do that to a person. What can we say? We just love the look of an office populated with lush greenery, the way it gives a sterile office environment a vibrancy. How the simple act of adding tropical plants can clear the air and brighten a day.
We love plants so much that even on our days off we can’t get enough. And we’re lucky that we live in the Chicago area, where there are so many great places to visit when we’re looking for inspiration in designing your greener office spaces. Keep reading and you’ll discover some of the best botanical gardens and conservatories in and around Chicago.
Encompassing 1,700 acres of gardens, trees, and plants from all over the world, the Morton Arboretum is one of our favorite spaces to get lost in nature. Morton is a great place to bring the kids, with a 4 acre interactive Children’s Garden and a 1 acre Maze Garden, plan on a full day of fun. If you’re looking for a more active day among the plants and trees, a 16 mile hiking trail and 9 miles of bike-ways are a perfect fit.

Located in Garfield Park, the conservatory is one of the largest greenhouse conservatories in the United States. Inside and out, the conservatory makes up 4.5 acres of plant exhibits. Bring the kids to Wild Wednesdays throughout this fall to learn about plants, and explore nature.

To put it mildly, the Chicago Botanic Garden is spectacular. Encompassing nine island within Cook County Forest Preserves, the 385 botanic gardens include 27 gardens in natural habitats. And the best part? Free admission.
