Before you begin a new flower bed, it’s a good idea to map out your ideas. Use a garden hose to mark the outlines of the new bed or border and set potted plants on the ground where you’d like to plant them. Then stand back and take a look. Make adjustments now before you start digging.

Once you know how you want your new bed to look, you’re ready to prepare the bed.

If in a grasses area-remove the sod. Cut along the outline of your bed with a spade, then slip the spade just under the grass roots and cut a small strip of sod, rolling it up as you go.

If in a weeded area ( or bare ground) a rototiller can save your back, but the process is much the same. Be sure to fish out the weeds from the tilled ground so they don't grow back

After you’ve removed the sod-weeds-rock etc., you’re ready to dig the new bed. Begin at one end of the bed and shovel away one blade-depth of soil, piling it on the opposite end of the bed. Next, loosen the subsoil below about 1 foot deep, and add a top layer of compost. Now move to the next section of the bed and remove the topsoil, piling it on top of the loosened subsoil in the first section. Continue in this manner until you come to the end of the bed and cover the subsoil in this section with the topsoil from the first section. The loosened, enriched soil will work wonders for your plants!

 

If you have a rototiller, just add a nice thick layer of compost and till it in. If the dirt feels good, loose and is easy to plant in you've probably done it right.  Sand can feel pretty good too, so make sure the soil has a darker appearance to it yet still feels loamy.

After you plant your plants, water them in well. Add a weed preventer NOT WEED KILLER ("Preen" is one brand though there are several) Do this ONLY if there are only perennials in your garden. This will keep weed seeds from germinating for 6 months-It will also keep any seeds from growing. So ONLY if you don't plan on growing any seeds in the bed for that amount of time. Thick layers of woodchips make an awesome finishing touch and break down into the soil adding needed nutrients for most plants, keep roots cool, reduce watering by half, and help prevent winter kill for more tender plants.
