award-winning gardener launches new border design service

Philippa Pearson

A new service giving gardeners the chance to create their very own award-winning borders has been launched by an expert garden designer.

Philippa Pearson, whose design and planting skills have been scrutinised by and rewarded with medals from Royal Horticultural Society judges over the last five years, is offering a tailor made, affordable border design service that takes into account specific gardening conditions.

An online form outlining the needs and requirements for the border is the basis for Philippa to create a unique hand drawn colour border design using plants suited to the soil, site conditions and the garden owner’s personal design wishes. A shopping list of which plants to buy, and how many, plus a useful plant maintenance schedule to help with caring for the border throughout the seasons is also part of the service.

Specialist on-line garden store Crocus has teamed up with Philippa to offer a 10% discount voucher off plants for the new border. The choice of top gardening designers, Crocus have grown and supplied plants for Philippa’s own award winning show gardens.

“I think all gardeners face times when they would appreciate some expert advice and knowledge,” explains Philippa.

“We all have parts of our gardens that don’t work well or need a boost. In some cases it is a flower border that needs updating or it’s a tricky area that can be given a new lease of life with some thoughtful planting. My border design service is a cost-effective way to treat you and your garden to some TLC. For that reason it also makes a great Christmas, anniversary or birthday present.” Gift vouchers are also available for the service.

Prices start from £180 for a border of up to 10m² rising to £280 for borders of between 10m² and 20m² and £400 for a border that is between 20m² and 30m². For border areas over 30m², and for whole garden designs, prices are quoted separately.

The Border Design service is easy to do. Visit Philippa’s website at www.philippapearson.co.uk and go to ‘border design by post’.
