26b Fenwick Road Kilmaurs KA3 2TD (Mr and Mrs B Murphy): The Paddock is a village garden, both front and back but with a difference. Scattered throughout are sculptures created by the owner herself! There are interesting specimen trees including a tulip tree, liquidambar tree and acers.
27 Crosshouse Road Kilmaurs KA3 2SA (Mr and Mrs R Mair): The garden to the rear of the house is in a sheltered position allowing growth of a wide range of plants which offer both spring and summer interest. Each of the two back garden areas contain both a pond and patio. The lower garden has about a third of its area devoted to a productive kitchen garden, soft fruit area and a cold greenhouse. The upper garden is entirely given over to flowering shrubs, perennials, climbers and annuals. We have developed the garden over 40 years.
39 Langmuir Quadrant Kilmaurs KA3 2UA (Mr and Mrs R Vosseler): A small west facing garden in a new estate was created in spring 2017. The garden is mainly herbaceous perennial plants with roses and evergreen shrubs. A slate path with slate edging meanders through garden. Excellent views of countryside over to Arran . The front garden displays larger perennial plants. The main objective of the garden is to produce cut flowers for the house from April to October. Many of the plants are from cuttings and divided stock from our previous house.
5 Kirkton Road Kilmaurs KA3 2NW (Mr F Murray): A small burn runs through this one acre garden. Informal planting lies to the south, fairly steeply banked with bulbs, bluebells, specimen trees and short woodland walk. The north side is laid out in formal lawns, edged by beech hedging and shrub plantations, divided by dry stone dykes. Visitors will find a 17th century dovecot which once served The Tour as a larder. To the back of the house lies the working garden, with polytunnels for roses, dahlias and chrysanthemums.
