Metal & Stone Fountains & Birdbaths
A birdbath serves multiple purposes. The birdbath can be used as way of adding a sculpture to a backyard or any space used for outdoor recreation. Even a terrace in the city may benefit from placement of a birdbath there. A birdbath is also a great way to attract birds and other wildlife. Birds are often drawn to the chance to drink water in a clean setting that is protected from predators. Many other kinds of wildlife also like to drink out of a birdbath and use the bath's water in other ways, including as a means of cleaning their feathers or fur.
Birdbaths come in many different types. The right type for one's needs depends on various factors. These factors include the size of the space, the kinds of items in the backyard and overall look that the homeowner intends to convey. Birdbaths are usually crafted of metal or stone. Some types use both kinds of materials. Metal & stone fountain birdbaths are highly attractive as well.
A stone birdbath is aesthetic in a backyard that already has other types of stone ornamentation such as a stone wall or a stone based patio surface. The rustic look of the stone birdbath will fit in nicely with the other stones used. Look for stones that have the same look as the other stones in the yard. A metal birdbath works well in backyards and outdoor spaces that already use metal as a theme. If you have a metal bench or metal railings on your deck, a metal birdbath will blend in nicely.
Look for the type of fountain and/or birdbath that works with your personal taste and style.
