Photos Showing Examples of Shrubbery Used Near House Walls


Need ideas for your shrubbery selection this year? These pictures of foundation plantings reveal examples of how other homeowners use shrubbery (in a variety of designs) near their house walls. In addition to bushes, I use examples of foundation beds that make use of spring bulb plants, small trees, etc.
