Birdbath with Solar Light and Planter

Solar Bird Bath with Light and PlanterI have seen a lot of novel ideas where birdbaths are concerned. Some are great, others no so much, but here is one I like very much and want to share with you.

When you are considering garden decor you have lots of choice including solar lights, birdbaths and planter. So some smart cookie has thought ‘why not combine all three elements’. And that’s exactly what they have done with this all in one Birdbath with Solar Light and Planters.

This distinctive looking combination of bird bath, planters and lamp frame is made from plastic that has been given an attractive antique  metal look finish.

Just think of the colorful flowers that you can plant to compliment the colors of the local bird life as it swoops down to drink and splash around in the basin, while at night the solar lights will cast a glow over the whole thing.

Now this is just the sort of thing that you can have more than one of. Just imagine having 2 or 3 along your drive or pathway or even scattered throughout your garden.

This particular fountain is made from resin so it’s pretty tough and will withstand any weather conditions.

Review: API 970 20-Inch Diameter Heated Bird Bath with Metal Stand

API 970 20 inch heated bird bathIf you live in an area where the temperature dips a little lower than is good for water in the birdbath, you may have gone through a number of options for keeping some water, not ice, available for visiting birds.

The problem with most heating mechanisms that go in birdbaths is they are unattractive bags that are little more than a heating pad put in the birdbath to keep part of the water from freezing. While the job is done, there is something about seeing that heating pad in the water that makes it so much less aesthetically pleasing.

Instead, the API 970 20-Inch Diameter Heated Bird Bath with Metal Standhas been designed to do the job while still looking as attractive as ever. In this case, instead of adding a heating unit to the birdbath, the birdbath is the heating unit.

This birdbath comes with a built in thermostat that will make sure the water stays at the right temperature so the birds can always have a drink, even when the mercury drops.

This is a completely self-sufficient unit with the birdbath on a metal stand that is ready to stand up in the yard, plug in and go to work keeping your birds happy.

In addition to making sure their water doesn’t freeze, the birdbath is also created to have a comfortable perch rim so the birds can land and stand easily.

What We Like

  • The whole birdbath stays thawed instead of just a little area around a heating insert.
  • It’s much more attractive than the heating pads you simply pop into the birdbath.
  • The built-in thermostat does the job without you having to run outside to turn the power on and off.
  • The stand is easy to put together.
