Flower pot birdbath

By: Garden Gate staff
You don’t have to spend a lot to bring birds into the yard!

Birdbaths at garden centers can be too elaborate, too costly or both. A simple and money-saving alternative is a birdbath made of a terra-cotta container and saucer. Plus, this is a great way to still get use from a pot that might be cracked or chipped.

Pick an empty place in the bed or border and just turn the container upside down, set the saucer atop the base and fill it with water.


Birds like the robins above, will enjoy visiting, and it’s a pretty, natural accent in the garden.
