Foundation plants are meant to improve house appearance, fill “bare” space, and welcome guests to visit your home. Landscaping around foundation is often just setting some plants around a house which do not create any composition and sometimes even hide your good-looking house behind them. There are some foundation planting ideas that will help you rethink the area close to your house.
Pay your attention to your house style. If it looks simple, has regular rectangular shape and symmetrical window rows, you can use interesting foundation shrubs, emphasize some areas, make an accent on the entrance, for example. If the house has unique shape, elevations, many stairs and porches, apply more casual and modest foundation landscape ideas.
It is important not to set plants that will hide some important parts of your house. Trees should not be too high in order not to extract attention from more important things. The plants should be set in such a way that they couldn’t cut light from your windows. Plantings trees near house corners is a nice idea, since these plants will soften them successfully. Sometimes it is even enough to set corner plants and just some plants near the entrance to emphasize your house beauty.
