We spend a lot of time talking about the many ways you can make your lawn beautiful, but the truth is that there are many different things can contribute to you having a beautiful backyard other than the condition of your grass. And while you may be tempted to get rid of all wildlife in your yard, there are certain animals that can actually aid to the success of your home’s overall curb appeal. One such species are birds. If you are wanting your yard to remain beautiful and healthy, we would encourage you to invite birds to spend time in your outdoor area. Continue reading below to learn more about the many benefits that come with attracting birds to your yard.
Benefits of Backyard Birds
If you already have birds in your backyard, they are part of a local ecosystem. If you want more, you are likely going to have to plan a bit of bird-friendly landscaping. This means adding fresh, clean water for them to drink, as well as bird feeders and bird houses. When you do these things, it can lead to a number of positive changes in your yard, including the following:
You may not be aware, but many birds eat a variety of different insects that you otherwise might need to hire a pest control company to get rid of. Some of the most common pests birds can help to eradicate from your lawn are aphids, mosquitoes, and spiders. Attracting birds to your yard will only encourage them to take full advantage of the natural food source you are providing for them. Not to mention, you won’t have any reason to use harmful insecticides in your yard, making it safer for both your family and any pets you may have.
Certain birds, like hummingbirds and Orioles, sip nectar, which makes them extremely efficient pollinators of garden flowers. If you have flower beds outside of your home, these birds can give them an extra boost, which will attract more birds in the long run.
This often comes as a shocker to homeowners but birds like finches, towhees, and sparrows are known to consume a lot of weed seeds, which means you won’t have to worry about spraying your lawn to get rid of these pesky plants anymore.
Plain and simple, attracting birds to your lawn means you are making use of native plants and available resources in your yard. You are supporting the ecosystem as a whole.
Increased Property Values
A home that is well-maintained with the appropriate native landscaping that encourages birds to spend time in the area will greatly add to your curb appeal, potentially upping your property value if you decide you want to sell. Attracting birds to your yard will also likely aid in upping the value of the neighborhood as a whole as well.
If you already love your backyard because of its serene beauty, we guarantee that attracting birds to your home’s outdoor space is going to make spending time on your back patio or porch even more enjoyable. Take a seat, soak up the sun, and listen to the birds chirping all around you. We have a feeling that this new habit will be your new favorite way to relieve stress.
