Border Chainsaw & Lawnmower Services


Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower services was first established in 1974 by Ian and Helen Cowe, the business stayed within the family until January 2019, over the 27 years of which the business was run in the family by Ian’s son Graeme and his wife Lesley who proudly retired during the sale of the business. In January 2019 the business was acquired by Borders based business Pearsons of Duns Ltd, who were picked as the perfect suitors for the business.

Pearsons of Duns celebrated their 100th year in business the following year. Built in the early days as a Solid Fuel Merchant, which later diversified to have a large portfolio of business outlets in Duns.
