7 Drum Gate

 

7 Drum Gate - NEW FOR 2017

Description

What started out in 2004 as just under an acre of bare earth has now turned into an attractive garden split into extensive herbaceous borders, large lawn areas and a young woodland with matasequoias,  tulip tree, rhododendrons and wonderful views across the Tay Valley and upwards to the Ochils.The garden continues to develop and mature with earlier planting of topiary and hedging now being able to be sculptured, fruit trees and scrubs bearing produce. Visitors can meander through the garden, pausing in the children’s Hideaway Cottage to listen and observe the many species of bird attracted to the garden. Work is ongoing but this is a rare example of what can be achieved from a blank canvas given vision, determination and plenty of time and patience.
