Join us for one of THBGs most popular webinars. Foundation and entryway gardens can make or break the "welcome factor" of a home or community building, so let's consider the problems and opportunities posed by this important space. Learn how to use winter's lean lines to assess a foundation area and imagine new designs. Build your plant list during the dark months, a list that includes native perennials, shrubs, grasses, trees, and ferns. Create habitat for birds and pollinators while creating an inviting landscape. Extensive handout and plant lists included.
