Benefits of Plants

Numerous studies have shown that live interior plants improve air quality, reduce stress and absenteeism, improve employee creativity and productivity, and save on energy costs. Let us cultivate an interior garden that will transform your workspace. Learn more.


Living Wall

Living walls or green walls are becoming popular and are a unique addition to an indoor environment. They are vertical gardens attached to the exterior or interior walls. They differ from green façades (e.g. ivy walls) in that the plants’ root in a support structure fastened to the wall itself. Learn More.


Outdoor and Seasonal

As well as indoor plants, we also create outdoor planters to soften and bring colour to patio, terrace and balcony areas. We plant these with spring and fall flowering plants, and we also supply seasonal Christmas arrangements which remain attractive well into the winter.


Plant Care

Once placed on your premises, the plants we supply are cared for by our trained technicians who do everything required to keep them thriving and vibrant. Our philosophy is that well cared for living plants are a reflection of a well cared for interior environment.


Interior Design

Working in partnership with our clients, we make it our aim to design and maintain attractive interior environments using living and thriving plant material. We are well connected to the Florida foliage industry from which we source an amazing variety of beautiful and vibrant plants. We also supply a wide selection of decorative containers.



Urban Green’s live plant care programs are designed to transform your work-space into a more productive, attractive and healthy environment. We specialise in servicing commercial and industrial offices, hospitality and residential facilities, shopping centres and car showrooms.

About Us

Urban Green was started by Bob Tigchelaar, in the mid 70's in association with Ben Veldhuis, a Dundas area greenhouse grower and early importer of many tropical plant varieties. Ben had a major influence on the growing use of live plants in indoor workplace environments, supplying clients throughout Ontario with plant stock.

In late 1980, Bob turned the sole proprietorship of the business over to his son, Peter, who began to operate it under the name of Urban Green. From the beginning, the idea has been a simple one: to supply quality interior foliage plants, primarily to workplace environments, and to deliver a viable and consistent service of care for them. Over time, the business evolved to include living walls and the associated technology.

Urban Green is now operated by James Cuthbert, who took over the business from Peter in 2018. Peter remains as a valued special consultant and the team now services the greater Hamilton area and London, Ontario.
