Elements of Design

Peggi Redalen



Invite flocks to your backyard ‘by Design’

with inviting plants and fruit-bearing trees,

shrubs and groundcovers in a wellconceived

landscape plan.

Birds, just like any guest are likely to stay longer if you

supply them with an inviting stay-awhile environment. Like

us, birds require four basic needs. Shelter and space. To

enjoy year round color from your feathered friends include

dense shrubs, evergreens and trees that provide resident

birds protected perches and a covered refuge from winds

and predators. Birds also need to be provided with sturdy

nesting spots and territorial space. Food. Include plant

material that produces fruit at different times during the

year. Be sure to add a few plants that will hold their fruit

through the winter. Water. Add birdbaths or water

features so birds will have water for drinking and bathing.

Consider using birdbath heaters to keep water from

freezing during cold winter temperatures.
