If you look outside right now, you’ll probably see a bird fly past in the blink of an eye, but have you ever thought about where they might reside in your garden? Birds are fantastic for the natural progression of your backyard, so here are a few ways you can keep them interested and coming back to your property.
Birds are fantastic. Attracting them to come and live in the surrounds of your garden should be something you think about. They provide free pest control, often eating many of the pests you want to rid, as well as giving your garden a nice natural feel with the sounds of their chirping in the air.
The best way to keep birds is to provide for them. Installing your own bird feeder is a great way to start. Giving birds the option to eat seed straight from a feeder will keep them coming back for more. A few bird boxes would also mean some call your backyard home, only growing the population and keeping your garden tidy of snails, slugs and other pests.
As birds move from tree to tree, they actually act as pollinators. This is a vital part if you have fruit trees or are trying to grow other seeds. They will also clean up all the fallen fruit from trees that you might have around your garden, saving you the hassle of discarding rotten fruit for weeks on end.
Overall birds provide a great ambience as well. Your garden will come to life and sitting outside and enjoying the sounds that the birds bring will be relaxing for you and your family. Not only do they help your garden, but you’re helping their population, creating a safe bird sanctuary-like environment.
