In an established yard with grass removed where Poly Border™ will be installed, (Top of Poly Border™ to be at CUT GRASS height). To do this, you might have to remove some soil to achieve the 3 1/2" trough. Using a shovel to remove soil the width of the shovel for the design to be placed. Use a measuring tape to measure from soil to cut grass height of 3 1/2 ". Using a soil temper or brick, pack soil firmly around the design and re-measure. It needs to measure approximately 3 1/2".
At this point if you are using weed fabric, it needs to be cut to fit the area in the design. Cut fabric along grass edge for a perfect fit (no dirt showing means no weeds).
