Remembering Phil Voice

7971099882?profile=RESIZE_180x180

LAST year, on 28 September, the founder of the Landscape Juice Network, Phil Voice, died at his home in France surrounded by his family.

A long period of treatment for colon cancer sadly proved unsuccessful although during this time he had continued contributing to the site despite his illness.

During the last few weeks Phil worked with his daughter, Fleur, on outlining what he hoped the future of the Landscape Juice Network would hold.

He wanted the site to continue to help landscapers develop and grow their business, share advice on tackling day-to-day problems but also provide support during difficult times.

Gary RK, a long standing member of the site and friend of Phil and his family, said: “I can’t quite believe it’s coming up on a year since Phil left us, far too early, following his battle with cancer.

“I still find myself starting to reach out to Phil on some related topic, question or discussion and I’m sure many still miss his input on LJN. As a good friend, I know I do.

“It’s great that LJN lives on as Phil’s legacy supported by a great band of members - so a personal thank you to all involved.

“And finally, my thoughts are with Donna, Fleur, Henry and the extended families as we remember him.

“Cheers Phil 🍻 ”

    I lost my wife to colon caner last month after a 2year battle and her legacy is the garden I have now and it gives me some comfort just to sit in and enjoy. Phil's legacy helps many of us everyday and like Julie's garden may it continue to grow and flourish as I'm sure Phil would want.

      Take care Dave and like you, I look at our garden and think of Phi. Its good to have a place that brings some comfort.

       

  • My first post on the forum and just want to send strength and love to the family, rest easy. Lost my 38 year old brother and mother to cancer within five years of each other in 2016. Been viewing the forum for a few weeks now and been getting inspired and learning more since!

    Cheers Phil

    Fondly remembered & sadly missed by Louise & I .... The site is a wonderful testimony to him and his endeavours in this industry..

  • Phil was able to help many people - it seemed to come naturally to him. This network is proof to that and the amount he gave to the network has guaranteed it is a living essential resource for gardeners and those in the industry today. So thanks to Phil and remembering him for all he has given.

    Thank you for this tribute to Phil, I am so very proud of what he has achieved with LJN. When he started this network, all those years ago, his main focus was to help gardeners and landscapers in a way that he felt was missing in the industry when we had our landscaping and gardening business in the UK. He was passionate about that. It really lifts my heart to know that it still is doing so, and I hope it will continue to do so. Our kids, Henry and Fleur are working hard to maintain Phils legacy and we hope that it continues to help and support. Cheers to a very special man.

    • Yes and here is a plant that Phil gave to Craig and I - doing well inspite of gross neglect!
