Five Easy Steps For Creating a Garden Border:
No Experience Necessary
May 20, 2013 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
I just found out about Garden on a Roll, a mail-order DIY garden border kit available in the UK that offers a choice of ten ornamental styles, including one shady and one “low maintenance,”and one edible border kit.
With non-gardeners in mind, British garden designer and television personality, Antony Henn, designed the easy kits to ensure success even for those with no prior gardening experience.
The boxed kits arrive complete with letter-coded plants ready to postion on the corresponding marked areas of a bio-degradable, professionally designed paper template (on a roll) that also suppresses weeds for up to three months.
How It Works
With the included instructional DVD, garden borders can be installed in five easy steps within a few hours.
Garden On a Roll Kit Includes
• All required ‘lettered’ plants
• Template on a roll
• Ground pegs
• Instructional DVD
• Hand trowel/fork
• Organic fertilizer
“I have always tried to help people who know very little about plants to get the best out of their gardens,” explains Henn. “As a designer, I have created many stunning gardens and always felt that lots of people would love to do it themselves but are too afraid to admit they know nothing about plants.”
I’d love to see something like this in the US!
