Christopher Palmer Associates were commissioned to design the garden for a new house on the Ochtertyre Estate near Crieff. The house was designed by Denholm Partnership to replace a dilapidated Dorran Bungalow. It sits on an elevated south-facing slope backed and sheltered by estate woodland.
The design takes advantage of the slopes, including elegant stepped grass terraces on the south side of the house, leading down to a sweeping lawn and perimeter trees. The main emphasis on planting is on the public side of the house and is complimented by drystone wall features and specially commissioned timber gates.
Planting has been selected to give seasonal interest.
