Best Foundation Plants for Stellar Curb Appeal. Plantings that ring the base of your home should do more than just conceal the foundation. But just hiding that juncture with a tight fringe of evergreens isn't the answer. Neither is a one-scheme-fits-all formula. "Two conical things on either side of the front door with two tall things on either end of the house with lower things in the middle—that's a dated approach." Here, foolproof planting tips to boost your curb appeal.
This foundation planting can handle the tough, hot conditions created by lots of concrete. And on top of adding lots of color, the plants in this plan provide tons of interesting texture, from the disease-resistant shrub roses to the attention-grabbing grasses. Don’t want to take care of containers? Trellises and vines with large flowers or leaves will add height contrast, instead.
