About the gar­den

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Garden Walkaround -

Lo­cated in the Ade­laide Hills, Frosty Flats first started life as a vegie gar­den at­tached to a dairy farm that has been in the same fam­ily for four gen­er­a­tions. Owner Alex Kowald had no mas­ter plan for the gar­den, and it has evolved or­gan­i­cally since 1988. Af­fected by hot winds, with tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from -6ºc to 41ºc, and the pos­si­bil­ity of frost from May to Oc­to­ber, it posed many chal­lenges. To­day, it’s an in­for­mal cot­tagestyle gar­den that spreads over a third of a hectare and is a trea­sure trove of wa­ter fea­tures, stat­u­ary and land­scape art.
