Don't despair if you don't have a backyard that can be converted into a tennis court; a small backyard can be a cozy and charming place for you and your family. It might be really exciting to dream about a large garden and an outdoor pool, but keep in mind that an area like that would have its downside as well. Just think about how much time you would need to clean and maintain the place. And if you can't do that yourself, think about how much money you would need to spend to hire people to do the job. It might actually be a blessing in disguise that you only have a smaller space as that would require low maintenance. And with so many creative and innovative ideas these days, that small backyard can turn out to be one of the family's most favorite places one of these days.

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.
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.
The four basic food groups for birds are Berries, Seeds, Nectar and Bugs. There are several berry plants that are easy to grow (some even wild) that both birds and people love. You can find wild blackberries, raspberries, mulberries, and many more that grow in almost any climate around the world. Some other berries that birds love are mountain ash, service berries, hawthorns, dogwoods, and crabapple. Seeds can easily be store purchased but can also be provided to the birds by planting flowering perennials and even grass seed is a favorite during the winter months when food is scarce. To attract your humming birds and butterflies you will need to plant nectar producing flowers. Nectar rich flowers are easily identified because they usually are brightly colored and have a trumpet flower shape. A few examples would be jasmine, trumpet vine, honeysuckle, salvia, fuchsia and many more. You should have supplemented feed such as bird feeders and nectar feeders all year long but it is very important to keep it filled in the winter months. Bugs are a huge source of food for birds, stop with the pesticides! Not only are they potentially harmful to the environment and your family, they take away a good food source for other living things.
