The area around a building is the very place that says “Welcome” to the visitor or “Relax, you’re home” to the occupant. The foundation of a building also contributes to the elusive quality called curb appeal. Yet how often do we see stressed-out shrubs and struggling perennials in this most visible area?

In this one-hour online presentation, we first consider the design problems posed by the foundation area around homes and other buildings. Then we look at native plants that fit into that highly visible setting. The foundation garden need not be a bastion of pachysandra and boxwood!
