Rear Garden Makeover (Back to Garden Projects)

The Brief:

  • Create a larger and more interesting patio area with defined areas for¬†specific uses.
  • Finish off and improve the pre-existing decking and the area around it.
  • Re-landscape the rest of the garden to make it lower maintenance, more¬†attractive and family friendly.<p style=”color:blue;margin-left:20px;”>


The decking in the far corner of the garden was unfinished, tired and under-used


This whole garden makeover included the laying of a large new patio with curved edge, improving and landscaping around the existing decking and making the whole garden more family friendly, low maintenance and attractive

The original patio was on different levels, had a very obvious man-hole cover in the middle and was looking rather tired

The new patio is all on one level, disguises the man-hole cover and creates a smart area for entertaining

Before the makeover the garden was cluttered and overgrown and lacked shape and character.

The shape of the new patio enhances the whole garden while the pruning and removal of overgrown plants makes the space feel bigger. The hot tub now has it’s own space on a new section of patio while the wendy house has been relocated to a more appropriate part of the garden.

This corner of the garden is a real sun trap (despite the snow!) and therefore the client was keen to have a new section of patio here to sit and relax.

This corner now has a special octagonal patio and is surrounded by sun-loving plants that will smell beautiful and will also encourage butterflies and bees.
