Introducing a bird bath pedestal into your backyard brings two precious benefits.
First of all, it’s great news for all those cute birdies looking for water, which they need both when they’re thirsty but also to keep themselves clean and healthy. And, secondly, it’s a beautiful decorative element that you’ll never get tired to look at.
Depending on whether or not you already own a bird bath bowl, you can either:
● Buy a bird bath base only so that you can place the actual bowl on it: in this case, it’s essential to measure them to be sure that they match
● Choose a pedestal that includes the bowl: because it’s all one piece, this makes it easier to keep the decor in your garden consistent (and avoids accidents if you have pets or kids running around)
Need some inspiration? We’ve included a few different styles from both categories!
Bird bath pedestal only
Scouting for a bird bath base only is far from boring: while the main focus will be the bird bath bowl, the right pedestal will elevate it and help you create a slender result.
We’ll show you a few options when it comes to design, but there’s one thing that you must always keep in mind: longevity and weather resistance.
That’s why a handy option for a bird bath pedestal only is powdered-coated iron.
Minimalist birth bath base
If you already have an extremely ornate bowl, it’s probably safer to stick to a simple birth bath base with a streamlined, clean, and symmetrical design.
This is also the best option in contemporary or minimalist gardens where highly decorative elements would look out of place.
Ornate bird bath base
If, on the contrary, you’ve opted for a simpler bowl, your new birth bath pedestal can be the one to make the strongest decorative statement.
We especially recommend this type of harmonious legs for whimsical detail-based styles like French country or shabby chic.
Bird bath base with a retro feel
Ornate bird bath pedestals are also a beautiful way of highlighting the vintage inspiration behind your home exteriors. To further reinforce the passing of time, you could even scout for one in a distressed finish.
Iron designs are especially fitting, but you should still look for some kind of coating to protect it from the elements.
Whimsical birth bath pedestal
As you’ve probably noticed, most bird bath pedestals consist of monochrome designs. Were you hoping for something more colorful? Perhaps a bird bath that looks as if it had just come out of a fairytale?
In that case, polyresin designs will offer you the most creative options.
However, they’re more likely to be affected by the elements in the long run. If you’re hoping for yours to last for many years, it might be safer to place it in a sheltered area.
Bird bath stand with feeder
Hey, you’re already providing all the birds in the hood with a place to drink, bathe, and chill out: why not turn it into an even fancier watering hole (literally) by serving food, too?
If you haven’t got a separate feeder, you can get two bird items with one stone by choosing a stand that includes it.
Durable bird bath pedestal
Looking for a bird bath pedestal that includes the actual bowl too? Then cast stone is another great candidate. Plus, these items immediately give off a more permanent and elegant vibe.
While you’re more limited when it comes to colors, these bird bath pedestals come in a wide range of sculpture-like designs: perfect to add a majestic touch to your garden!
Streamlined bird bath pedestal in an accent color
Bird bath pedestals are a European invention, but a ceramic build can reinforce this exotic inspiration even further.
You’re especially going to love it if you were hoping for a brighter design that goes beyond the natural colors of the most traditional materials. In fact, how about a bird bath pedestal in your garden’s accent hue?
Bird bath stand with fountain
Just like you can get a multipurpose bird bath with a feeder, you can apply the same concept to water features.
If you’ve always dreamed of introducing one into your garden, your new bird bath pedestal can be the perfect excuse!
Creative bird bath pedestal ideas
Since the bird bath pedestal and bowl get most of the attention, aren’t we forgetting about something? We think we are: the bottom of the base!
While in most cases it’s just a simple part of the pedestal, you could get creative by choosing one that includes room for another decorative element: flowers, pebbles, or whatever you wish to surprise your household and guests with.
When it comes to a bird bath pedestal, there a wide variety from which to choose. Birders and gardeners should take into consideration their construction, convenience, and design before making their selection. By making these choices carefully, the bird bath will likely attract a significant amount of species to the yard. As you can see, a bird bath pedestal isn't just about adding a decorative ornament to a backyard space.
Selecting a bird bath that's aesthetically pleasing is important, but it also must be proportionate to your landscape. If it doesn't match your garden visually according to its size, it will be out of place. For example, one that's too small will get lost in the garden's foliage and flowers. One that's too big will come off as pretentious.
While small bird baths are convenient and easy to maintain, larger models will accommodate more birds without territorial conflicts occurring. However, larger bird baths are more challenging to clean and move. It can, however, be to your benefit that they hold more water.
While the design and size are both equally as important, so is the bird's comfort. A bird bath pedestal featuring a small lip will best accommodate small birds. The bird bath should feature a textured surface so their small talons can grip. Ideally, the bath should be approximately one to two inches deep.
Did you know that the height of a bird bath pedestal is something to make a priority? The main reason is that it becomes a critical point when birds need to drink. The smaller the bird, the more comfortable they are with a taller bird bath. They prefer having a better field of view. However, doves, ducks, and quail prefer drinking water at ground level.
Keep in mind that, the more ornate the details on the bird bath, the more challenging it will to be to keep clean. When there are delicate mosaics and detailed sculptures, those areas will collect dirt and grime quickly. Therefore, when you select a simpler style with smoother surfaces, they clean up quickly.
While it may be tempting to pick a bird bath featuring the most elaborate details made from concrete or marble, this may cause problems in the long-run. Not only will some of these intricate details break off over time, but they’ll collect moss or other debris that’s difficult to remove. Bird baths featuring the highest durability are constructed from thick plastic and, in addition to being long-lasting, they’re simple to clean.
