Lay out the area for the flower bed, using flexible garden hoses; paint along the hose with landscaping spray paint. Cut into the ground along the painted lines with an edger or spade. Remove any existing turf within the garden area, and till the soil to a depth of 8 to 12 inches, using a rototiller or shovel.
