Create Foundation Gardens That Welcome Native Plants
Saturday, April 6, 1:30-3:30pm

Instructor: Kathy Connolly

How can we bring beautiful native plants into the traditional bastion of boxwoods and pachysandra, the foundation garden? In this two-hour talk, landscape designer Kathy Connolly first looks at the fundamental design problems posed by buildings, driveways, sidewalks, and other structures. She offers new ways of looking at buildings in the landscape, helping participants get fresh insights on foundation-area plantings. The discussion then moves to the subject of native plants that perform well in these settings, including shrubs, small trees, perennials, and groundcovers. An extensive handout includes plant lists and design resources.
