How do people do designs like welcome in flowers? Is there an easy way like a flower mat or do they plant individual plants?

Great question and one I've never previously thought about. So after a bit of poking around, I found that the majority of people who practice this technique simply outline what they want to spell out--like 'welcome'--using rope, hose, flour, etc. and then dig it out. They fill in the dug-out areas with their designated flowers, usually with low growing but bright colored blooms.
