An overplanted garden looks established
Dominique Vorillon


A view of bare soil makes a garden look unestablished. To avoid the immature look, mass annuals -- plenty of them -- close together. By doubling or tripling the number of plants you'd normally put in a bed or border, the garden fills in quickly. If your using perennials, however, give them more room so they don't have to compete for space and nutrients.
