Beside above, how do you plant flowers in a walkway? Mound the soil in the bed so that it slopes slightly toward your walkway and is 2 inches lower than the top of the walkway. This is optional but preferred if you will be adding mulch to the flower bed. Another option is to dig the entire flower bed so that it is flat but 2-inches lower than the top of your walkway.
Subsequently, question is, what plants are good for borders?
Best plants for narrow borders
- Espalier trees. Espalier, fan and cordon-trained trees are a great option for narrow borders.
- Bearded iris. Bearded iris take up very little room and will thrive in a hot, sunny border.
- Japanese anemones.
What can you plant between sidewalk and street?
One area ripe for community greening is the hellstrip—the narrow space between the sidewalk and street curb. Sometimes planted in grass, filled with weeds, mulch or simply bare trampled earth, this public space could be planted with tough native plants.
