The creation of Auchlea garden from its natural state as a wetland of rushes and whins began in 1998 with the drainage and sowing of a lawn on introduced topsoil. The planting of trees, mostly around its periphery was also begun then. Extensive herbaceous borders with a wide variety of colour and species have been gradually developed. There is also a sheltered vegetable garden, made more productive using raised beds, alongside a recently replanted bog garden. The habitual, accumulated use of garden and household compost has progressively improved stony ground around the boundary, where a mixed hedge has made good progress.
