Garden Decor – Create a Wildlife Habitat Garden Style

The true love of animals and wildlife, can really bring on a calming, relaxing effect while you are in their surroundings. With the use of garden decor, you can create your own wildlife habitat right in your backyard, using a variety of beautifully designed work of art.

Some people may simply want to buy outdoor garden decor to create the feeling of birds or other wildlife around them. On the other hand, some may want to go as far as to actually transforming their backyard garden into a peaceful sanctuary that will attract various types of birds and other wild species.

There are many creative ways to decorate your backyard or even at the front of your home, such as placing your favorite garden statue in a desired location. You can find some unique pieces that will capture the theme that you are looking for.

For example, this cat and mouse garden sculpture in the image above, is one of my favorite garden decors. One plus about it is that it is designed with weatherproof resin, which allows it to withstand outdoor elements year round.

If you are a big fan of birds, choose from a wide variety of bird garden statues. Place them in different locations in your yard. These creative work of art depicts the real beauty of these colorful wild birds, perched throughout your garden.

Homeowners who want to actually attract wildlife in the backyard, should try different techniques such as setting up an outdoor water fountain or a birth bath, as this will entice the birds, since they are attracted to the sound and the sparkling effects of the water.

If you have a tree nearby, you can simply hang one of these in a shaded area. If you don’t have a tree available, use bamboo stakes to create an appropriate space to hang the birth bath.

Another idea is to draw the attention of wild birds by buying a bird feeder. This is a small price to pay for being able to sit comfortably and watch the birds as they fly back and forth, especially with the upcoming summer months.

Since squirrels can spoil your fun, choose a specially designed bird feeder that will stop squirrels in their tracks if they decide to join in the feast. This will also prevent you from having to buy more bird feed than necessary.

The ideas to help reach your goal of creating a wildlife backyard theme is endless. These are just some of the ways to get closer to nature and wild species without spending a lot of money. Try these and enjoy bird watching and more without having to leave your home.
