About Robert Frier msgd

Your Local Award Winning Garden Designer

in Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire

Manchester-based Robert Frier is an award winning garden designer and full member of the Society of Garden Designers.  Robert has received The Queens Award for Volunteering and also been voted Best of Houzz 2015,16, 17, 18 & 2019

Based in South Manchester, I have had a passion for gardens since the age of 12 and have been creating award-winning garden designs that work beautifully since 1995.


As a garden designer, I work collaboratively with my clients, offering a Full Garden Design Service for all types and sizes of private and public gardens. I design gardens around clients' budgets and specialise in family and low maintenance gardens. 


After appearing in 6 episodes of ITV’s "Surprise Gardeners", I was invited to Buckingham Palace in recognition of my voluntary work restoring a 20th Century public garden.


Whilst known for my curvaceous flowing lines, I can create equally inspiring designs with geometric, formal and clean line solutions


For unique, tailor-made gardens – large or small, tailored to suit your lifestyles/budgets, please contact me.

Education and ‘giving something back’ are also important.  Hence why I lecture in Garden Design at Oldham, Trafford and Reaseheath Colleges.
