Back Garden Frinton

About This Project

Back garden design Frinton

Clients brief

The clients came to us with a back garden design they had commissioned from a local garden designer. The clients had asked for a simple yet stylish back garden. They required planting around the boundary to screen the fencing and provide some privacy, a large lawn area, a small area for growing vegetables and a utility area.

Type of property

A large detached house recently extended and completely renovated.


This property is located in Frinton on Sea

Time taken to build

Mid October to early December 2013

Original garden

The garden was a completely cleared by the builders who were carrying out the renovation works. A new fence had already been installed and we were left with a blank canvas, except for a few exiting trees.

Features retained

The Silver Birch was retained and the deadwood removed and the Holly tree was shaped. The Eucalyptus tree was removed.

Materials used

The paving is swan Indian sandstone. We laid 900x600mm slabs in a brick bond pattern square to the house and laid a border of 450x900mm matching slabs. The step treads are bullnosed 40mm sandstone.

The lawn is edged with 100x5mm mild steel welded to square pins.

Contemporary slatted trellis and gates panted white used to screen the sides of the house.

A bespoke shed designed to be parallel to the house on one side and follow the fence line on the other.

Stainless steel Hunza garden lighting has been installed throughout the garden and on the house.

The summerhouse is from Scotts of Thrapston []

Challenges overcome

This garden did not present many challenges though storage for materials was very minimal which resulting in the paving being moved around site a few times before being laid.


The planting bed around the boundary consist of shrubs and trees which will screen the fence and provide some privacy.

A bamboo hedge was planted along one fence to create a screen from a neighbouring property.

The front of the larger planting beds and bed adjacent to the patio consist of herbaceous perennials and small structure forming shrubs.
