About

Bright Green Exterior

Creating truly unique live and artificial planting schemes for the commercial sector.

At Bright Green we embrace variety and our wealth of experience combined with our flexible approach means we work with the world’s best-known brands and designers. We can build amazing trees, lush green walls, one-off moss art pictures, giant palms, gorgeous floral statements and even tropical rainforests complete with anacondas. Whatever the brief, we have the expertise to design creatively within a budget, construct in materials to last and are also trusted to install with utmost professionalism. Managing the whole process in-house means your project will be in our capable hands from start to finish.

Our enviable client list and Inspiration Galleries are just a small reflection of what we have achieved over the 30 years we have been in business.

Our History

Sarah Leather started the business in London in 1988 under the name of Green Interiors, installing and maintaining live plants in offices in the capital. In the early 90s the company moved to Oxfordshire and with the purchase of bespoke artificial tree and preserved plant businesses they began to specialise in artificial planting alongside live plants. The company has grown in size and reputation to become the leading manufacturer and supplier of replica plants to the commercial sector.

Where we are

We are fortunate to be located on a 3-acre rural site on the banks of the Oxford Canal.
Not many companies can claim to have built their own offices and workshop, but in 2010 Bright Green built a revolutionary straw bale building with the support of a team of volunteers from over 24 countries. Constructed from over 600 bales of straw, covered with clay plaster dug from the surrounding land and clad in British larch, the Straw Barn is a breathable organic building. Further buildings followed and the site now boasts 3 large eco buildings which house the design and manufacturing of the trees, green walls and the plant nursery.

Meet the Team

Sales/ Design

(Catherine, Flora, Anna and Emily)

Catherine and her team spend a lot of time talking to architects, interior designers, visual merchandisers and event organisers. They tackle projects as large as entire shopping centres in Rome right down to individual pots of herbs for a restaurant with the determination to create the best looking and best value schemes possible. They deny eating most of the cake.

Creation

(Sarah W, Matthew, Andi, Sue, Sammy, Walth, Alix, Jean and Ian)

Our green wall and tree builders come to us with truly varied skills. A core of the team have been building trees for over 30 years, whilst our newer members bring a combination of design, landscaping and practical backgrounds. We value their can-do approach; when you have an ex Porsche mechanic building a topiary duck and a florist wielding a circular saw you know you can achieve anything. They don’t worry about eating cake as they burn off all the calories.

Installation

(Sean, Brendon, Krzysztof, Sorin and Matthew)

Our team of installers travel the UK to fit our green walls, install trees and hang vines.  They combine great practical skills with artistic flair and are all fully qualified to work on site and at height.  Why have cake when you can have chocolate doughnuts?

Behind the scenes

(Sarah, Mandy, Megan, Susie, Zoe, Hugh, Barbara and the office pooches Sebastian and Angus)

The glue that holds everyone together including Accounts, Marketing, Operations and crucially cake making.  Between them they ensure everything runs smoothly but they never get the credit. Sebastian and Angus would like to eat all the cake but there is never any left.
