About Aylwin Nissen – Garden Designer
Aylwin Nissen established ‘Beyond the Borders’ in 2001 after completing a diploma in garden design from the Pickard School of Garden Design.
The formal professional training cemented together his experiences of being a smallholder, gardener and landscaper with his passion for design, architecture and landscape.
Danish born Aylwin has designed and built gardens in Copenhagen, Northumberland, Cornwall and Surrey, before settling in Hampshire, establishing a wide portfolio from city courtyards, to urban gardens and country landscapes.
Aylwin has inherited the Scandinavian love of all forms of practical design and aesthetics, blended with his English passion for gardens and the exuberant chaos of the plant world.
