Things Needed railroad ties wild flower seeds potting soil black landscaping mesh tiller 1 x 4 scrap wood iron rake hand cultivator Step 1 Pick the spot that you want to be able to enjoy your garden. Once chosen, it is time to figure the size of the garden that you will have. For wild flowers, I am keen to the idea of a garden that consist of 24' x 10' area, but not if it will overwhelm your yard. Step 2 Once you have decided the best spot for viewing, it is time to till it up. Most Home Depots or Lowe's will rent a tiller. If not, see if a neighbor has one as it is not a cheap buy. Once the ground is tilled, then you will need to remove as much as the grass as possible. Step 3 Once the grass is removed, you are going to take your Black landscaping mesh and lay it out with enough overhang that will run under the railroad ties. Do not worry of how much cross over you have as this is going to be the barrier that keeps the grass from growing. Step 4 Once the fabric is pinned in place, then it is time to lay the rail road ties. Now, hopefully, you have already outlined how you want the bed to go because in moving the railroad ties, it will take 2 strong backs. Carefully place them how you are wanting them to go and make sure that they are as close together as they can be. Set all of them in place. Once in place, use the 1 x 4 scraps and some screws to attach the ties together on the inside. This is keep them from moving apart. On the corners of the outside, I would recommend once you attach them, you then spray paint the 1 x 4 to make it blend. Step 5 Once the ties are secure, now it is time to add the soil. Dump in as much as you can without packing it down. Get it as close to the top as you can and rake it out smoothly. Using an iron rake works best. Step 6 Now the fun is here. Once you have chosen the seeds that you want to use, it is time to load them in the hand spreader. Put in as little or as much as you want and if you like, bury some bulbs also. Once you have the seeds spread, take the hand cultivator and go over the bed being careful as to mot walk in it. Once you have turned then entire bed, it is time to water it down. Step 7 Now, it is time to sit back and watch as the seeds will sprout to give you your own garden of fresh wild flowers. Warnings Now, it is time to sit back and watch as the seed
