No part of a landscaping plan
is more important than the foundations of your
home. Without plantings, they are often the
least attractive part of the house. Yet, these
areas are the ones most often seen by homeowners
and visitors alike. One of the most important
things to remember in selecting foudation planting
material is that you are endeavoring to enhance
the house, not smother it. Often, however, foundation
landscaping is just a few evergreen shrubs with
perhaps an occcasional planting of annuals–not
the colors and textures of a coordinated planting
of beautiful flowering shrubs and perennials.
To help you beautify your foundations, our expert
nurserymen have created the Foundation Sun Garden
which is ideal for a 90 sq. ft. area that gets
at least six hours of sun each day.
The flowering shrubs in this garden – a Double
Mock Orange and three Hydrangeas – look magnificent
planted against clapboard, stone or brick, softening
monotonous expanses that are often seen along
house foundations. The perennials are all hardy,
with an emphasis on cool blue shades, highlighted
