RESIDENTS are being invited to visit a "garden with a difference" in the Hillfoots this weekend.

Part of Scotland's Gardens Scheme, people are being invited to 60 Greenhead in Alva, behind the primary school, on Sunday, August 7, from 2pm to 5pm.

Entry will be £5, children go for free, with funds going to Stirling Baptist Church and the CAP Forth Valley Debt Centre.

Divided into "rooms" with themes, the garden has extensive planting with a clever use of pots throughout.

Recycled materials are used, especially in the "cosy corner" which features a fireplace.

There is a wide variety of shrubs, perennials and annuals as well as vegetables and fruit.

Along with a pond and a small wildlife area, there is also a folly which was created during the lockdown of 2020.

Those behind the garden hope that it will be an inspiration for anyone trying to enhance a small space.

The garden at 60 Greenhead will be signposted from the A91, people are being asked to park with consideration for other houses in the area.
