Planning & Planting My Front Yard Border 2014

My front yard border is always planted with perennials and annuals, and is decorated with cool junk. My goal is to add vertical interest with varying plant heights (short in front to tall in back), and with garden props like a funnel on a broomstick or a stepladder.
Update June 9th: Border is filling in nicely!
Just planted front yard border 2014
Here are diagrammed photos of my emerging perennials and annuals to be added.
I also use containers like this tub to add height.
More planting diagrams, middle of the border.

I use a garden fork to prepare the dirt for annual planting.
It all comes together in June, July and August! (2013 border) Check out my blog post for many more tips and planting ideas!
