A Good Foundation Planting

By November 16, 2012

Follow me on:

For many of us, the shrubs in front of our homes are about the only gardens we see throughout winter. While there's a movement to get us thinking about alternatives to foundation plantings, shrubs still rule. If you're not yet willing to replace your yews and rhododendrons with perennials and vegetables, you still might want to think about sprucing up your curb appeal. David Beaulieu has a foundation planting photo gallery of inspiration for you to mull over and compare what you have with what it could be.

While we have a large meadow out front that has to stay meadow per HOA rules, our “front yard” is all flower and herb garden right up to the front porch. We have shrubs and trees for structure and hardscape (fence, water feature) for interest. If I could, I’d grow wildflowers in the meadow!
