Connect mounting hole to ground plane

I have a PCB that I drew including the two mounting holes.  How can I add pads around the holes and connect them to the ground plane?


attached is an example of what I want to do and my current PCB design.

Hi @yaqoubdesign and @gixxerrider73,


I hope you're doing well. Easiest way to do this would be to use Vias that are connected to ground.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
