Low maintenance evergreen foundation plant?
We are just finishing construction on our new home and will soon be adding plants. What is a good evergreen foundation plant that doesn't get too large, and maintains its shape without having to be trimmed/pruned. We don't want tall bushes - maybe 3' or so in height. At my last house we had Indian Hawthorne and Box Woods. The Indian Hawthorne was better about holding its shape, but they both still needed regular shaping. I live and work away from home M-F and don't want to spend my weekends doing yard work! Thank you!
