Invisable border

I'm trying to make a flower bed with out using a border just using a trench type of border in the front yard. the problem that im having is that there is no grass its landscaped as a mulch yard and im trying to transition the flower garden with out using any border how can i do that?

If the rest of the yard is already mulched, you can make a gradual transition to the flower bed by using the same type of mulch, or for a contrast, use a different type of mulch in the flower bed. Either way, there's no need to dig a trench at the border of the flower bed. None of my flower beds have an edging treatment or a dug trench to define them from the surrounding yard.
