Foundation Planting Bed Design Idea

This type of foundation planting bed is quite common. A lot of times, areas like this are left over odd shaped spaces that are difficult to fit into the rest of the lawn design with a smaller planting bed right next to the foundation. So without being able to create a classy looking bordered lawn area, the most common solution is to simply match the rest of the landscape ideas and planting scheme and cover it with ground cover.

Even without plants, foundation beds are important to help keep sprinkler water off the house. However, foundation planting beds can also cuase damage to the foundation of the home if they're planted with plants that require a lot of water and need to be flooded. Just keep this in mind when choosing your bedding plants. Many evergreen shrubs are very drought tolerant.
