How far away from foundation should shrubs be planted?
Hi all, I'm installing some foundation plantings (thanks to everyone's input!), and I'm wondering what the guideline is for how far away from the foundation they should be. I don't want them "floating" out there forever, but I don't want them smooshed up against the wall when full grown. If a shrub says it grows 3-4 feet wide, should I plant it exactly 1/2 that distance from the wall? And should you use the smaller end of the range when doing that math? Thanks!
