Creating a Landscape Feature Out of Your Pond

When I first bought my home, I was unsure about the man-made pond in the backyard. The water was green and there was no wildlife to be seen. I decided to work with the water feature instead of spending money on fill materials to get rid of the pond. I added a water fountain to the space first that featured a submersible pump and I later added fish. After installing a filtration system and an aeration device, my pond became the central landscaping feature on my property. I made a lot of mistakes as I completed the installations. I had to learn about the biological filtration and I had to figure out how to control algae with shade plants. I want you to have an easier time than I did creating a water feature, so read my blog to find out what you need to do.

The Benefits Of Having Bird Houses, Baths, And Feeders In Your Garden

Do you have a garden outside your house? Have you been looking for some unique and interesting ways to add some style and create more of a homey feeling in your garden? If so, then you may want to consider adding some garden bird houses, bird baths and bird feeders to the area. Not only are these items aesthetically appealing, but they also have many other benefits for those with gardens, including:

Great Photography Opportunities

If you like to take photos of wildlife or nature, then installing bird houses, bird baths, and bird feeders in your garden may be able to help you with this. Birds will be attracted to these items, and if you are able to get close enough to the birds, you may be able to snap some amazing photographs that you can add to your personal portfolio. You can also take pictures of the items even when birds aren't on them, because they will still make for nice garden pictures.

The Ability to Add Beauty to the Area

Even if your flowers and plants are beautiful, it is still nice to be able to look out the window from time to time and see beautiful creatures moving about outside your home. Bird houses, baths, and feeders will attract various species and colors of birds, so you will always have a wide array of color when you look out your window.

They Can Brighten Up Your Day

Most of the birds that come to your bird feeders will be singing birds or will be brightly-colored. Therefore, if you hear the bird song or see the various colors, you will be filled with a sense of joy. These birds can lift your spirits just with their very presence, and as a result, if you're having a bad day, they may make you feel better.

Making Your Guests Happy

If you have guests over at your home on a frequent basis, then they will also appreciate the abundance of bird-related items in your garden. Most likely, they will appreciate the aesthetic appeal of these items, but beyond this, they will also enjoy looking out the window and seeing birds--especially if the bath, house, or feeder is readily visible from their guest room window.

Are you looking for an interesting way to spice up your garden while enhancing the overall appeal and beauty? If so, then consider putting a bird house, bird bath, and/or a feeder in the area and watch the birds flock to these things. In no time at all, your garden should be alive with vibrant life and color, and you and all who see it will be quite happy.
