Birds love water. They use it to drink, bathe and play, and usually all in the same source... they aren't picky. In order to have the bird oasis in your backyard you have to have some source of water, it can be a simple bird bath, a pond, fountain or even puddle. They prefer shallow water so they can stand and splash their wings around to bathe. You will enjoy every minute you spend watching them play in the water.
My advice is to write down your needs, your wants and your constraints. For instance, you may need a swing for the kids, you may want new garden furniture and your constraint is the size of your garden. Taking this approach will help you prioritize what you must have against what would be nice to have and then help you to consider some of the suggestions below (some more radical than others) for redesigning your backyard. Ideas to get you thinking!
One final tip is to use wire that is graded for direct burial and made for underground use. Most speaker wire will do but after a while it would degrade and you don't want to have to retrace where it went bad.
Just imagine not having to load the car with towels, changes of clothes and a cooler full of food any more. All you have to do is hook up a hose and bring out a lawn chair. If you kids get hungry all your do is send them into the kitchen to get a sandwich.
Ideas abound when it comes to landscaping. Don't limit your imagination, only be limited by your budget. A well designed backyard can add so much to a home, and give you a hobby to spend your time with. When you look back at the end you'll swell with pride at your accomplishment and you'll always want to look out the window whenever you walk past to see what you did.
When you have a small backyard, maximize what you have. You may choose to install a decorative fence to create a comfortable atmosphere. If you love plants, make sure you don't select bushes as they are bulky and could take a lot of space. Avoid choosing different plants and stick to the dwarf varieties. You don't want to overcrowd a small area when your main objective is to actually create more space, or give an impression of a larger backyard. Keep the designs as simple as possible. If you want flowers, don't experiment and be tempted to dump the place with flowers of different colors. Avoid visual clutter by selecting a single dominant color in varying shades. The same concept applies to your choice of outdoor furniture; select a one color and ensure they are made from the same kind of material as well. If you prefer wood, go with wood all throughout. If you prefer metal or iron, then stick with it for the rest of the furniture and outdoor fixtures.
