Cement Bird Bath Tips

  • Cleaning Cement Bird Baths

    One problem with cement baths is that they are prone to get grungy quite easily. Algae grows on the cement and can spread quickly. I find that it helps to refill the bath every couple of days. When doing so, give it a scrub down with Brillo or a brush.
    For a good clean - empty all of the water. Mix a solution of one part bleach to nine parts water. Wash the bird bath with this solution. You might need to leave it to soak for a few hours. Rinse very thouroghly. Allow to dry. Refill.

  • Position

    Full sun is great for the birds BUT encourages algae growth. So choose a spot that has shade if you don't want to clean too often. Place away from trees and other plants that loose their leaves. Make sure it is sturdy and not able to fall over. Try and place away from bird feeders to minimise seed falling into the water.

  • Best Bird Baths

    All birds love water! They need it for drinking, preening and bathing. So even if they do not choose your garden for the food, they will visit the bird bath. Any kind of bird bath will find favour with your garden birds, and give you endless hours of entertainment.

  • Depth for a Bird Bath

    The best depth for a bird bath is 1 - 3 inches deep. Deeper water is difficult for even large birds to drink from and bathe in. Make the water more accessible by adding a shallow dish to the middle of the bath, or use rocks to provide perches in the water.

  • Water Features

    Try misters, drippers, fountains and ponds as ways to provide water for backyard birds and as a feature in your garden. Birds love a fountain! The noise of the water attracts them and the movement of the water keeps it aerated and clean.
