To make a birdbath in your garden first of all you have to decide where to place your birdbath. Place should be chosen in such a way that birds must be able to access the bath while feeling safe. Avoid placing birdbath near to trees and brushes. Cats are natural predators of birds and they are more likely to hide themselves in brushes to attack on birds so birds avoid places which are near to plantings.
While considering place for birdbath seek a balance of lighting and some sunlight is also important. Most of the birds do not like full shade or full sun.
Now place a basin or any birdbath over post. You can use anything that can hold water such as metal pie pan or glass cake pan. Just make sure it is not going to rust or poison the birds. Also make sure that the birdbath you selected has no sharp edges. Ceramic or glass birdbath is great in mild climate. Keep your birdbath shallow. It will be good if you choose birdbath with a lid or edge as it will provide birds a place to stand.
Don’t forget to place a rock on birdbath as it is necessary for stability. Rock helps to stabilize the birdbath. This is especially important for lighter weight pans. The rock will also provide birds another place to stand other than the edge of pan.
Once you have made birdbath in your garden, its maintenance is your duty. Maintenance is very simple which includes a daily quick wash and refill fresh water. Fresh water is important. If you choose concrete birdbath then it will require occasional scrubbing with a stiff brush to save birds from slippery.
This is an easiest and simplest way to construct a birdbath in your garden. It is super easy to build. You can make it more attractive by decorating it with beautiful flowers and plants.
