Hyatt Landscaping provides Charlotte NC and surrounding areas with expert landscaping services. One of the many different types of landscaping services they provide includes foundation and hedge planting services. Foundation and hedge plantings are typically created using mostly evergreen plant material. The purpose of this is to keep from having little to nothing there during the dormant season.
Foundation planting often refers to the row of plant material that is located right next to the foundation of a structure. This could be near a home, business, building, or other type of structure. Usually it’s best to choose a variety of different shapes, sizes, textures and colors to help highlight the architectural elements of the structure itself. When designing your foundation planting, it is very important to use plant material that will not be difficult to maintain in the future.
Hedge plantings are typically used to help define a space by installing a continual line of plants that eventually grow together as if they were one single plant. This is typically accomplished by using the same plant variety throughout the entire hedge. One of the techniques required to maintain the hedge planting is pruning, which will help to ensure the end result takes on the desired appearance. Most hedges define spaces or paths, though they can also be use to create foundation or privacy plantings.
Examples of foundation or hedge plants include Holly, Ligustrum, Osmanthus, and Viburnum.
