Watching garden birds in your own back yard can be very rewarding, particularly if you landscape your garden to include an open area to attract birds and other garden wildlife.
Bird enthusiasts are always looking for ways to attract birds to the garden. One can do this by creating an Exclusion zone made up of South African Indigenous Plants. Birds will be attracted to a garden that provides for their needs, but will stay for longer if they feel safe and not vulnerable.
There are more South African Indigenous Indoor Plants than one thinks. With such a diversity of plant types, shapes and textures, there is a great variety to choose from for office plants, plants for atriums, patio plants and conservatory plants.
The best results are achieved when one knows how to plant a tree correctly. The time and effort taken to plant your tree correctly will pay off handsomely when you have a beautiful, well-structured and healthy tree in your garden.
A properly planted tree will grow faster, stronger and healthier.
The best way to create a small bird friendly garden is simply to give the birds what they need… places to feed, nest, rest and breed. If you design a garden around these requirements, using indigenous food-bearing plants, birds will flock to your garden.
Birds will visit even the smallest gardens, provided that these basic needs are catered for. In other words, you need to create a great habitat (a place that can provide for all these needs).
Create a beautiful small garden, using indigenous plants of South Africa. Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery constantly inspires with new display gardens, and this time we have presented no less than five beautiful small gardens ideas.
