Lush Foundation Planting


Name: Lush Foundation Planting

Open to the public? No

County: Davidson

USDA Hardiness Zone: 8a

Extension Demonstration Garden? No

Approximate year the garden/landscape was established: 2002

What to look for: This foundation planting flows nicely around the corners of the house. It has a lush but controlled feeling with a variety of textures, heights and plant interests. The planting is rather formal but retains the personal touch of the homeowners. 

Horticulture: The espaliered Pyracantha takes work to maintain but is lovely against the south-facing wall.
