- Step one is to clear a border about two or three feet wide from the fence line. The length is totally up to you. Remove the weeds and other growth and add a 2 inch layer of compost.
- Step two is to select the plants and plant them with the taller plants along the fence, medium plants next, and small plants in the front. If you are using seedling plants you can arrange your flower pots in the border that you wish to plant them. If you are using seeds you can poke holes in the soil where you wish the plant to grow and mark it with a plant marker before you proceed to actually plant the seeds. Do not be afraid to planted in an irregular pattern as this will give your garden a more natural look.
- Step three is to keep your border moist; watering at least once or twice a week if it does not rain. To keep the weeds down you can sprinkle compost in between the plants weekly.
- Step four is to sit back and enjoy it.
