Birds might be beautiful to look at and lovely to listen to, but they can be disastrous for your lawn or turf. Keep your grass green and your seeds un-nibbled with some top tips for looking after your lawn.
One way of discouraging birds from your garden is to set up a sound deterrent. Choose one that makes the same sound as a predator or distressed bird call and make sure it changes its sound frequently, are birds can get used to repetitive noises.
For very big gardens, you may even want to consider something like a modern scarecrow. While a traditional style is unlikely to be suitable for your home, you can buy smaller, moving models that can work well to fool birds into thinking there is something dangerous waiting for them in your garden.
If that is going to look horribly out of place on your lawn, why not experiment with mirrored surfaces, as birds can be scared off by their own reflection. The easiest way to achieve this is with is iridescent bird deterrent foil, which can be cut into strips and stuck on top of trees or fences.
If your lawn has been ravaged by birds and is looking very worse for wear, why not replace the turf and enjoy a smooth, beautiful grassy surface. For quality turf in a wide range of varieties, be sure to get in touch with Green Acres Instant Lawns in Melbourne. Call 03 9999 5708 to find out more.
