Grow A Garden & Feed The Birds To Enjoy Your Backyard

Sometimes you just want to be outside, yet you don’t want to have to go anywhere. That is what your yard is for, your own piece of land to do with as you please. There are plenty of outdoor activities that you can enjoy in your own yard. What are your outdoor hobbies? You might not be able to hunt in your backyard, but consider these fun-filled activities.

Earlier today, I was writing about trees and how birds love them and will be around if you have plenty of trees in your yard. Another way you can keep birds around in your yard is to put up different bird feeders. This can be fun, but you have to know what types of birds you’re trying to get to visit your yard. What are the native birds? What bird seed do you need? Get decorative with the feeders and find great places for them so you can enjoy some bird watching.

What better way to enjoy your backyard than to get into some gardening. Let’s split this into two categories: gardening for aesthetics and gardening for food. It can be quite a lot of fun harvesting your own produce, and you can of course keep your garden looking very nice. Speaking of looking nice, how about a nice flower garden?

Some flowers are easier to grow than others, but the harder ones like roses can be so much fun. You could get into making hybrid roses, and you could also plant colorful hibiscus flowers, too. Of course, having fun and enjoying your yard is more than just about gardening and feeding the birds. Don’t knock those two options, however, as they can be ongoing fun. Now what else would you like to do out in your backyard?
