Restored over a five year period form 2002 to 2007, Monteviot Dene Garden utilises recycled walling and cobblestones to create new pond retaining walls, a stone bridge crossing and a restored lead fountain. A continuous walk crosses the garden 3 times with a wooden suspended bridge and a dam walkway accompanying the natural stone bridge enabling the visitor to view all parts of the garden.
This is planted to create foliage interest with a wide variety of plants including bamboos, rogersii, hostas, grasses, windmill palms, ferns and primulas in rich drifts. The whole garden can be viewed from an elevated platform accessed by a wooden staircase. This viewpoint also gives an excellent view of the arboretum and the view also continues to the River Teviot to the south.
