I'd plant annuals to border the steps and sidewalks. Petunias, trailing lantana, gazania, marigolds and geraniums are all good choices for hot, sunny areas. You can mix or match the colors and even interplant to provide a burst of color. You can use the same plants in your containers (all but the marigolds will trail over the sides of the containers), then add a tall plant for height. Salvia, dusty miller or canna are good choices. Hope these suggestions help you design just the right look for your yard!
