Birds in the Garden

If you want to encourage native bird life in your garden, hanging a birdseed bell or leaving out food scraps for them to eat is not the way to do it. You need to create a garden which is bird-friendly, and will encourage birds to not just come for a feed, but to nest and make your garden their home.

In order to attract native birds, you should plant native flora. Grevilleas, Banksias and Acacias are excellent sources of nectar, insects and shelter for many native species. Larger species require larger trees for their habitat – Kookaburras, Currawong and Parrots all require native trees of substantial size to feel at home in your garden. Smaller species like Honeyeaters, will be encouraged to visit if you plant nectar producing bushes and trees.

If you are unsure of the type of bird visiting your garden, you can search using descriptives such as size and colouring to find the name of the bird, and read about its habitat, feeding and breeding practices on the Birds in Backyards website.

As well as providing native flora for bird life, a small pond, fountain or bird bath will also encourage winged visitors – especially on a hot day. If your pond has fish in it, you will want to cover the pond with chicken-wire or something similar, because many birds enjoy freshwater seafood! Bird baths should be placed in dappled shade and perched high enough for the birds to feel safe and comfortable. It should also be close to shrubs or trees so that the bird can escape if frightened. Birds drink and bathe in the same water, so the water will need to be refreshed quite frequently. A shallow pond with a fountain and various levels and depths would be perfect.

Providing nest boxes is another great way to attract bird life. Natural hollows in the trunks of old trees used to provide a nesting place for kookaburras and parrots, however in the suburban landscape, old trees are removed and so this natural habitat for nesting is not so freely available. If you are serious about encouraging birds to make your garden their home, then consider a few nesting boxes carefully placed at a safe height and in the shelter of a healthy tree.
The key to creating a bird friendly garden is to create structural diversity with a good mix of native plants. Plants should include a range of shrubs of varying heights, grasses and ground covers and some nice tall trees. Using mulch around garden beds encourages insects, which in turn encourages birds to visit and feed.

Looking for regular mulch deliveries?

We are looking for people that will accept large mulch deliveries on a regular basis. Each load can range between 8-18 cubic metres. We can do multiple deliveries and sometimes we have several trucks working and can easily deliver 20 cubic metres in a day.

18 cubic metres will cost approximately $200 delivered. If you required the mulch to be spread across the garden we can do and we would have to quote depending on the landscape and size of the task. The mulch is basically free, our labour is not. Contact us today for more information.

Recommended Arborists

A good arborist is hard to find. We know. We work in the industry. We’ve spent some time in the industry have learnt a thing or two about how people operate, their capacity, their qualifications, their professionalism, their insurances, and their reputations. Let’s take a quick look at a few arborists (that we can recommend).

Sydney Tree Removals

This site is run for Sydney Tree Removals so we may be a little biased. However, from our dealings with Sydney Tree Removals they have proven to be reliable, honest, and professional. As a blog writer I have more work than I have time, so I could have moved on to another client. But I stick with Sydney Tree Removals because they are just so pleasant to deal with. If you don’t believe me, have a look at their reviews on Google. At the time of writing this blog post they have a 100% 5 star rating.

Sydney Tree Company

Is a solid and reliable company. Based on my interactions within the arbor market, I have seen Sydney Tree Company step up and take on the larger jobs that smaller arborist companies cannot handle. They have a capacity to scale up and down really quickly. No job is too big or small for them. Their Google Reviews, just like Sydney Tree Removals, are exceptional with an average of rating of 4.8 stars.

Botany Tree Services

Botany Tree Services is a relatively new player in the market with only 10 years of experience. They have all the arbor equipment to take on small and medium sized jobs. What might be surprising to know is that they also do work in Canberra, despite not advertising that fact. So if you have a huge arbor job, they could relocate equipment for you if a deadline needed to be met. They haven’t spent a lot of time building their web presence as they have been working on word-of-mouth for a long time. I’m glad to see they’re getting their name out there. They currently have 5 star rating on their Google Reviews.

Brisbane Tree Removals

If you are in South East Queensland, then Brisbane Tree Removals is the go to arborist service. They put all other arborist companies to shame. Their tree removal crew is incredibly experienced and efficient, and their equipment even comes with all the bells and whistles! They don’t currently have a Google Reviews page, however, I did spot they have a Facebook Page and their reviews there are 5 stars. Looks like they’re dominating social media and moving away from blogs. Maybe I need to shift careers!
