Create Foundation Gardens That Say ‘Welcome Home’ to Native Plants

How can we bring beautiful native plants into the foundation garden, that traditional bastion of boxwoods and pachysandra? In this one-hour talk, we'll look at two ways to answer the question.

First, we'll consider the fundamental design problems posed by buildings, driveways, sidewalks, and other structures. I'll suggest a few new ways of looking at the home or community landscape. Then, we'll look at the many native shrubs, small trees, perennials, and groundcovers that suit foundation-area gardens.

An extensive handout is included with this talk, listing upwards of 100 plants as well as many design resources.
