One of the many benefits of having a backyard is to enjoy the small glimpses of Mother Nature at her finest. Whether that’s with a blooming garden or by inviting in some friendly winged friends you’re sure to get hours of relaxing time in an atmosphere like that. Attracting birds is easy when you have the right “invitation” set out for them. The first item on the agenda should be a birdbath. There are so many varieties of birdbaths that it will be hard to choose just one. What you want to keep in mind is that the bath should be easily accessible for your garden hose to allow for a quick cleanup and refilling. The birdbath should also be placed in a cool, shady spot as opposed to the direct sunlight. If you’ve never had a birdbath set up in your yard before it might surprise you at how popular it will become. No need to put out a sign; the birds will find it fast enough!
Building a birdhouse is another wonderful way to invite the winged creatures into your yard. Once again, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to DIY kits. The thing to keep in mind is that you can weatherproof and decorate the outside of the birdhouse to your heart’s content but leave the inside “raw.” The size of the hole of your birdhouse will also determine how big a bird you might end up attracting. If you want to go the extra mile and provide feed for the birds you won’t have a problem getting a birdhouse with a feeder attachment. If you’re lucky enough to have a family of bird take up residence then watch from a distance. You don’t want to get too close especially if momma bird is looking out for her little chickadees.
Setting up a small bird sanctuary is just one feature you can add to your backyard garden. You might want to make good use of that space by planting a veggie or herb garden. To accomplish that you’ll probably be digging up a patch of land and creating a pile of dirt. Don’t throw that dirt out; hire Junk King Hudson Valley to come by and pick it up for a proper disposal.
Although their title might imply that junk is their specialty, Junk King is equally adept at removing all kinds of yard waste both natural and manmade. The natural would be clomps of sod, fallen tree limbs, shrubs or any other chunk of growth that you want gone. On the manmade side would be all those things we bring into the yard that take up space but have lived out their usefulness. Things like an old basketball hoop, a kiddie pool, a swing set or even an abandoned tree fort. All of that can be cleared out with one appointment with the Junk King Hudson Valley. Make your garden grow by getting rid of the junk.
