3 Steps to basic flower garden design

1 - Select planting location

The primary concern when selecting a planting location is that plants not have their roots in standing water. Select a well-drained location for your flower garden. Evaluate the sunlight level such as full sun, partial shade, or full shade.
 


2 – Create a layout
 
Use a garden hose or kitchen flour to lay an outline on the ground for the desired flower bed area. Measure the length and width for the flower bed. Take the measurements with you when you purchase plants to determine how many plants you need.
 
 
3 – Choose plants
 
Plants of varying heights and widths provide an esthetically appealing display. Choose two to three different plant heights and widths, which may be displayed on the nursery plant tag as the mature or expected growth potential. Select complementary flower colors such as all pastels or all bright colors. Alternatively, choose shades of the same color such as varying green colors of hosta or ferns for a shade flower garden.
