After all, a new flower bed can completely transform your front or backyard and breathe new life into your landscaping. Sounds pretty great, huh?So whether you’re prepping for a change of season or simply looking to refresh your garden, simply follow these five steps to create a new DIY flower bed:Step 1: Clean Out Your Current Flower BedIn order to truly transform your old, overgrown flower bed into a new, sprawling flower bed, you must start with a clean slate. That means removing old perennials, which if healthy can be potted, and getting rid of all weeds, which typically live in conditions that don’t favor other plants. Your bed should be uninhabited but look clean.Pull up all weeds within your bed and spray weed killer to truly start with a clean slate.Step 2: Redesign the Lines of Your BedIf you’re putting the work in to completely redo your flower bed, it may make sense to reconfigure the layout. Consider turning old straight-lined edges into more appealing curved edges. Curved beds appear larger and more organic than a simple straight and sharp-cornered bed. Sketch out your new bed before making any changes so you can keep your edges crisp and clean.Building natural edges within your bed will make it easier to mow your lawn.Step 3: Add New Soil and Let Your Bed SettlePrior to planting, you must lay a good foundation for your flowers to grow. This may include traveling to a local garden supply store and inquiring about what soil is right for your garden. Start by digging up rocks, roots and debris from one end to the other. Then lay down a layer of garden-specific soil about six inches deep and spread it across the bed. Consider adding compost and leaf mold to help boost the nutrition and quality of the soil. Once finished, give your bed 30 to 60 days to settle before planting.It’s critical to give your soil plenty of time to settle in your flower bed.Step 4: Plant and Mulch Your Flower BedWhen arranging and planting your groups of flowers, consider how they’ll look from your house, your yard and so on. This may include arranging them from shortest to tallest or putting color groups together. This is the step where you can really be creative and show off your personality. Remember to water the plants until there are small puddles around their bases. Spread a thin layer of mulch throughout your bed to help retain soil moisture and prevent weed growth.Put together a plan for where you’d like your variety of plants to be placed.Step 5: Rejoice in Your New DIY Flower BedNow is the time to sit back and enjoy your newly planted flower bed. Make sure to maintain it as needed by removing weeds, inspecting for garden pests and providing all kinds of TLC. You should also take a moment to appreciate all the hard work you put in.
