Description

 

 Highlights:

  • Garden owner will be available all weekend
  • Frog pond, outdoor kitchen, river setting
  • Riesling vines and countless fruit and nut trees

Professional landscaper of more than 35 years, Chris has created not so much a productive garden, but a productive sanctuary.

Set on a stunning two-acre block on the banks of the Onkaparinga River, Chris has spent the past 28 years transforming his patch into the Garden of Eden it is today.

With his strong beliefs in reusing and recycling, coupled with bohemian creative flair, Chris now lives in not only a beautiful garden, but one that provides for him year round.

Surrounding his dwelling are seasonal productive gardens with meandering stone pathways, a chook shed and outdoor kitchen. In addition, there are unique art installations, complimentary plantings and playful areas where his two daughters enjoyed growing up and being immersed in the abundance that surrounded them. 

Leaving this area, a pathway meanders towards the river through countless fruit and nut trees. Recently some Riesling vines have been planted in a star shape that will see Chris making his own wine.

The pathway continues past a frog pond and even more productive trees. This garden has certainly grown organically over the past two decades and is a testament to Chris’s skills, passion and countless hours of hard work.
