Happy to share with the community another gem of landscaping Foster City. This item was found in a garage and we believe it to be original. It is the Foster City Home Owners’ Landscape Planting and Maintenance Guide and it goes through some of the original planting guidelines in Foster City. The documents are not dated but due to the thick high quality paper, typeface and oxidation on the pages we suspect his is from the 1960’s.
Not all these guidelines would be current today. In fact, many would NOT be recommended because Foster City has learned more about what grows well with a high salt water table and our unique soil fills (which do vary around FC).
Hope this is informative and hopefully an idea FC Government might consider this idea for a current modern guide and drought tolerant plant update.
