This is a newly designed (and surprisingly large) south-facing garden which had been neglected for some years. While the design retains much of the original structure, a circular theme was introduced to help define grass, pond and seating areas. The hard landscaping is specifically designed to give a feeling of space and openness and effectively joins the living quarters of the house to the garden itself. Some established trees, hedges and shrubs were retained and some much loved trees and shrubs from a previous garden were incorporated. Mixed planting of evergreens and herbaceous plants help to ensure year-round interest. There are also raised beds, vegetable and fruit plots as well as a greenhouse. The front area is minimalist and deliberately low maintenance.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
