Need a quick & easy solution to create a beautiful garden border?

Hello, I'm Nikki, award winning garden designer and I designed this 'Border in a Box' for you to create a professionally designed garden quickly and easily without the designer price tag.

Would you love a gorgeous garden? But don't know where to start, lack gardening know-how or short on time? Our ready-made garden border design kits take less than a day to complete meaning you'll save oodles of time and effort by following our easy guides to creating magical garden borders.

Our choice of five design templates will give you a professionally designed border that will provide colour and interest all year round and more importantly plants that require little maintenance and are likely to survive longer than a few months! Prices start at a purse-friendly £24.99 for one design. 

Is this you?

  • No clue about gardening but want a pretty garden
  • No desire to research on what to do with your garden
  • You find garden centres overwhelming with too many plants to choose from
  • Plant names are unpronounceable and are written on labels that are too small to read
  • A tight budget

Border in a Box is perfect for you:

  • If you want to create your own beautiful border(s) and just want a shopping list of what to buy
  • If you just want a ready-made garden design kit to follow that can be completed in less than a day
  • You've had your garden landscaped and the planting is the last job to do
  • If you've moved into a new home and need to refresh your garden borders easily & quickly

It also makes the perfect gift for house-warming, birthdays or any special event, you could even divide up the plant list so everyone can give a thoughtful gift.

These templates are designed to make gardening easy and enjoyable for everyone!   

The box includes a design template that shows you what to plant where, a plant list with a photo and information about the plant, seeds to sow in-between the plants and a quick start guide -everything you need to create a beautiful border with minimum effort but big rewards.

There are currently five borders to choose from - Sunny, Shady, Evergreen, Contemporary and Cottage. Each border measures 3m x 1m, but can easily be adapted to fit any size or shape. You can buy just the one design, or several to suit the particular needs of your garden.


Which border should you choose?

Most gardens will have a mixture of sun and shade at various times of the day. For example, you may have the sun shining through your windows most of the time, but the garden could be in a shadow due to a fence, neighbours' tree or shed. For this area, you would need the Shady Border Garden Design.

The Sunny, Cottage and Evergreen borders are designed for full sun or part shade, and are suitable if the border is in shade for part of the day. So, you can choose which style of planting is your preference.  If your border is big enough you could blend the two styles which would provide all year round interest, with great colour from the perennial plants in the Sunny or Cottage designs.

The Contemporary border has also been created for full sun and part shade. It is perfect for the front garden and can easily be adapted to container gardens - it's my personal favourite.

Each border has been designed for a 3m x 1m plot, but by spacing the plants out, they can easily accommodate a larger border. However, if you need any assistance or advice, feel free to send me an email nikki@borderinabox.net and I will do my best to help.  

Even if you only want to create one border at a time, it's a good idea to think about the overall garden design. This way you can avoid making expensive changes to an established border if you want to add lighting, a water feature or additional paving at a later date. 

I also recommend replicating the border around the garden as it provides continuity in the colour scheme, provides a much more cohesive look and is restful upon the eye.

Whichever design you choose, I know you will enjoy creating your garden and after all your hard work you can sit back and admire the view!
