Foundation plantings are designed to create curb appeal, give a house a settled, nestled-in appearance in the landscape, and increase a home's value. While many designs incorporate evergreens for year-round structure and color, foundation plantings also can include deciduous shrubs, small ornamental trees, and a wide array of perennials, annuals, and bulbs for seasonal color and interest.
To help choose plants for your foundation areas, first make note of the light conditions and the rough sizes you want your mature plants to be. Pick out a few shrubs for structure then fill in with a variety of plants to enhance the style and color of your home while creating a pleasing mix of shapes, colors, and textures for year-round appeal. If this sounds daunting, our knowledgeable and friendly customer service staff members would be happy to help.
