Foundation Gardens That Say ‘Welcome Home’ to Us . . . and to Native Plants

Saturday, January 13, 2018 -
10:00am to 11:00am

We all want foundation gardens that say "Welcome Home." These gardens contribute to that important but elusive quality, "curb appeal." They are also visible to us every day and can be unsettling when they don't seem just right.

Foundation gardens are also a place where we can welcome nature home. 

In this talk, we'll first look at the special design challenges associated with this part of the landscape and try out new ways of seeing it. Then we'll talk about how our foundation garden designs can welcome beautiful native plants into this traditional bastion of boxwoods and pachysandra.

The session handout provides extensive lists of plant ideas and helpful design resources.
