BIRDSCAPING AUSTRALIAN GARDENS
A Guide to Native Plants and the Garden Birds they Attract
What can you do to make your yard, garden or even a balcony, a more bird and butterfly friendly habitat? Birdscaping Australian Gardens will show you how to attract garden birds and butterflies into your garden by planting the native plants that best satisfy their needs.
Not all plants are equal. Some plants provide more food for birds – nectar, fruits and seeds; some plants are excellent for shelter or nesting. By utilising these ‘super’ plants it is possible to create an intensive habitat for wildlife and a garden sanctuary for you.
Complete with the latest cultivation and landscape techniques for native plants, the book also includes many spectacular new plants that have recently been introduced into cultivation.
Lavishly illustrated with the author’s pen and ink drawings and photographs that illustrate how beautiful your garden will be when adorned with these wonderful creatures.

About the Author
Australian author, architect, landscape designer, wildlife artist and photographer George Adams, is a pioneer in this concept of landscaping. After graduating in architecture from the University of New South Wales, George became involved in an ecological approach to design and subsequently developed an interest in native plants. Adams began to study the requirements of native birds and developing a philosophy of man living in harmony with nature, using architecture and landscaping to help connect people with the natural world.
His study of native plants and their inter-dependence with native birds led to the development of a ‘grading of plants’ according to their relative value to wildlife and the writing of his first best-selling book Birdscaping Your Garden (1980).
