Create a Living Frame- Vibrant Boxwoods, Spruce, Dogwood, or other evergreens and flowering trees offer a gorgeous frame for your home. Putting a couple of matching trees at the corners of your home or at entrance ways is an easy way to mask the foundation. Framing also helps center the focus on the entryway and invite guests into your home.
Go Vertical with Hardscaping- Adding a trellis or an arbor over entryways can add further privacy and warmth to your home. The structure can come in endless designs and provide arched walkways or simple entry gates. Add climbing roses or ivy and you’ll have shade and color in the spring.
Background Design- Place evergreen shrubs and small trees near the foundation. Boxwoods or juniper shrubs work well in this design to provides a blank canvas for colorful bushes, flowering trees, or even perennials. They can also be trimmed and shaped to add extra design elements.
Edges of Flowering, Feathering Plants- Fill in blank spots or add drama with lovely flowering and feather plants at a lower level. Plants like lavender or sage will further mask and foundational flaws and give a whimsical look to any garden or home.
Flowing Terraces of Greenery- Another technique that works well with the natural architecture of our region is layering bushes near the foundation. While you don’t have to create actual terraces, using different types of shrubbery and plants can produce the effect of levels and add texture to your design.
