Bird Bath Style fountains feature a structure similar to that of a regular Bird Bath. These fountains typically have a pedestal like basin that is on the thinner side. On top of the pedestal sits a shallow dish or bowl. Inside of the dish is a water feature that most often bubbles water. Some birdbath style fountains feature large spouts of water, but for attracting birds, you will want a water feature that is not too agressive. Birds are often attracted to water features because it gives them a clean place to bathe and a clean place to rehydrase themselves.
Types of Birdbath Fountains There are many different types of birdbath or pedestal fountains. These water features can be made out of cast stone or a lighterweight material like fiberglass. Often, the dishes of pedestal fountains can feature decorative birds or centered finials or other decorative statues. Birdbath fountains are a wonderful choice for small outdoor landscapes when you want to put your fountain directly in the garden.
Where to Place a Pedestal Fountain:
If you are looking to attract birds, pedestal style fountains should be close by trees. Birds like to be able to escape out of harms way if necessary and finding an area where they can easily escape is often the best placement for these types of fountains. You should be cautious not to place your garden fountain too close to trees as leaves and other debris can clog the fountain pump. If you are not specifically looking to attract birds, you should consider placing your birdbath style fountain directly in the garden. With their tall pedestals, these types of fountains look beautiful when surrounded by high growing plants or large trees.
