An award-winning architect, George Adams developed the concept of creating living gardens that make a contribution to the preservation of the ecological biodiversity of their location. His interests in native plants and their interaction with wildlife, the process of preservation by cultivation, and his concern for the long-term survival of Australia's natural heritage, combined with his love of photography, drawing and bushwalking, led to him publishing several books in Australia and the United States.
"This book is a masterpiece – a must-have tool in every gardener's wheelbarrow."
– Costa Georgiadis, ABC's Gardening Australia
