We carried out this garden construction at a new housing development in Nunthorpe, on the outskirts of Middlesbrough. Access was available from the rear of the garden as the land to the back was a building site pending construction.

The client requested a complete transformation of their back garden to include multiple seating areas that would capture the best of the sun throughout the day.


Slate paving was chosen to create a one-of-a-kind patio as each slab is individual in texture and shade. The deep colours of the natural slate stepping stones stand out against the plum slate chippings.

The chippings bring a rich but bright feel to the planting areas and shine when wet. Drainage on the site was poor so we infilled with graded free draining foundation stone to help alleviate the problem.


To complete the look a planting scheme was carefully designed to work with LED lighting. Along with the seating, this brought another dimension to the space on an evening and through the night.
