- 1). Fill a garden planter with potting soil, stopping two inches from the top of the planter.
- 2). Dig a shallow trench around the inside edge of the planter to make room for the border plants.
- 3). Consult the growing directions accompanying the plant to determine how deep to dig the trench and how far apart to space the plants.
- 4). Plant the border plants, using either ground cover plants or spiky grasses, evenly spacing the plants in the trench. Cover gaps with additional potting soil.
- 5). Water the border plants.
- 6). Fill in the space in the middle of the planter with other plants of your choosing, letting the border plants "frame" them.
