About LawN and Border

Nick Barban – Owner

After so many years of cut-backs and job losses, Nick decided that starting his own business, would be a better way to serve the community. In January of 2002, the idea of a gardening company was born, the first leaflets were printed and he and the company have gone from strength to strength.

Although Nick had no previous expertise in Gardening, Maintenance, Landscaping or Estate Management, he took the RHS Level 2 course at NESCOT college which he passed and of course has been learning ever since, although, not on courses but generally from reading, the internet and others with skill sets of use.
