Earlier this year, we had an idea inspired by the TV shows DIY SOS and Love Your Garden.

Here at Hillier, we all wanted to do something special for our charity partner Wessex Cancer Trust by transforming a garden for one of their clients. At first we wondered if maybe the project was a little too big to take on, then we realised, if anyone can do this, Hillier can. With 73 Chelsea Gold Medals, a wonderful team of horticultural experts and a club full of Gardening enthusiasts, this would be a breeze, wouldn’t it?

A couple of phone calls later and our award-winning Chelsea duo, Sarah Eberle, Chelsea’s most decorated designer and Mark Tomlinson from MJT Landscapes, are as excited as we are about the project and ready to take on a challenge!

Meet the Burrell family

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Pippa and Daniel Burrell and their son Sebastian, and discover how Wessex Cancer Trust have helped to support them. Watch this video to listen to their story and you’ll see why we couldn’t resist doing this garden makeover for them.
