Beautiful Border design and illustration inspiration

If you are applying for a Beautiful Border,  and this is a new experience for you, you may find it helpful to look at the design illustrations from previously successful applicants. 

Your Beautiful Border design drawing doesn't need to be a technical masterpiece. It should clearly convey the planned layout, including planting areas and any features, to illustrate how you plan your Border will look. 

We've selected a few examples from recent years to illustrate the variety of styles that could be used. We recommend using colour.
