My Buzz

I love creating planting plans and designing gardens but realise this isn't everyone's cup of tea, so I created garden border templates, beautifully packaged, which enable anyone to create a pretty border, easily and in less than a day! There are currently 8 designs to choose from - Sunny, Shady, Evergreen, Contemporary, Wellbeing, Clay soil, Butterflies & Bees and English Cottage style - each version contains a design template, so you know what plant goes where! A plant list detailing each plant along with a photo and flowering times. Some top-tips and two packets of seeds to help anyone new to gardening or time poor to create a beautiful border.

My Bio

I was in corporate IT sales for 20 years, but after moving into a new build property the garden was the last 'room' to get decorated, but I had zero budget left and I was overwhelmed by the blank canvas and didn't know where to start.
I managed to create a pretty garden, and lots of neighbours and friends started asking me to help them with their gardens.
So I studied at a horticultural college and then left corporate life to set up my own business and that was the start of Border in a Box as I knew there are so many people out there that need help in turning their tiny back gardens into something pretty and interesting, which my ready-made design kits can help them easily achieve..

Life is all about balance - whenever the going gets tough, look for the good as it's there somewhere!
