Growing up in California, Orion Tait used to watch his father’s weekend housekeeping routine. “Sunday was loud music — Neil Young — and my dad going around watering the plants,” Mr. Tait recalled. “He had a deck of plants growing everywhere. It was a ritual.”
Mr. Tait, a creative director and partner at Buck, a production company, tried to carry on that tradition as an adult in his Brooklyn home, complete with the loud rock. But he and his wife, Amy Won, were too busy to care for their houseplants. They never got around to repotting them. Fungus gnats colonized.
“I was, like, this is New York City,” Mr. Tait said. “There’s got to be someone we can hire.”
That someone was Lisa Muñoz. For $2,000, Ms. Muñoz will come fill your house with plants and make it look beautiful. You can spend more than $2,000, but you cannot spend less; that’s the minimum fee charged by her Brooklyn-based firm, Leaf and June.
