Planting Questions

flower_bright_orangeWhy should I have foundation planting?

Foundation planting often softens the look of a house. Well thought-out foundation planting can correct for any proportion issues the house may have and can help the house to blend seamlessly into the rest of the landscaping. Foundation planting can emphasize architectural highlights (or detract from any flaws).

How close can I plant trees to the foundations of my house?

The answer to this question really depends on the variety and type of tree. We recommend selecting a tree with a less aggressive root system if you are planning to plant close to the foundations of your house. We are happy to give you adve specific to your situation at the Garden Centre.
