How to Attract Birds to Your Yard with Artificial Grass

July 20, 2022

Are you looking to bring your garden to life by attracting some of the local birds? Some homeowners believe that artificial grass can hamper this, but that’s not the case! Artificial grass is a great way to prevent those pesky pests from ruining your lawn while still being inviting to wildlife. So if you want to learn how to attract birds to your yard, here are some top tips:

1. Add a Bird Feeder

One of the best ways to attract birds to your garden is to add a bird feeder. Adding nuts and seeds is a great way to keep birds returning to your garden throughout the year. It’s a good idea to place these feeders away from windows to avoid the risk of them flying into one. We also recommend installing your artificial turf at least 20 feet away from your windows to avoid heat damage.

2. Provide Fresh Water

Alongside offering them food, you should also ensure that there is a regular supply of fresh water. This will make sure that birds not only have something to drink but also bath and cool down in. This is especially relevant during the hotter months. Outdoor fountains or a small pond with a recirculating waterfall will help attract birds to your garden.

3. Add Some Color to Attract Birds to Your Yard

Another great way to help get more wildlife to your garden is to add some colorful flowers and trees around your artificial lawn. This is a great way to start attracting insects which in turn will bring all kinds of birds to your backyard. Certain shrubs and berry-producing plants can attract a variety of birds, so feel free to check out this plant list for some ideas. These plants and trees will also provide fantastic shelter for birds.
