Tennessee – The most important step to planting a new flower bed is to visualize the future by anticipating the heights, colors, textures, and mass of all the various plants.  Even though everything is pretty much the same height when the bed is planted, eventually the background plants will greatly surpass everything else in size.

The strategy here is to create a backdrop of tall flowers in the back of the flower bed, which creates a “canvas” for the rest of the arrangement. This is a technique known as “layering.” In the context of planting flower beds, “layering” means you put the tallest flower bed plants in the back, the shortest in the front row, and the remaining plants in between. A nicely layered flower bed provides maximum visual appeal when all the plants mature.
