Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. In this section we're going to talk about how to make your garden feel more welcoming. This is the most important part of your garden to make it feel more welcoming are your water features. To be as simple as the little bird bath or a little leaf ceramic leaf that has water in it or an actual water feature with bubbling water rocks. Water features don't have to be that complicated just a nice concrete rock with bubbling water coming over it onto rocks, it's very simple. Basically it's just a plastic crate with a pump with a rock over it and filled with water on a plastic lining so the water doesn't float away. That is about easy as it is. Bird bath I think is another very essential feature of your welcoming garden. You want to welcome your friends as well as wildlife into your yard and bird bath seem to do it. Also there is so much beautiful art you can pick up that is also a bird bath at the same time. A lot of features can be as simple as a concrete leaf with a little bit of water in it. In the summer time the birds come and take the water out of there as well. To make your garden more welcoming you have to welcome everyone into your yard, not just your friends but wildlife as well. Next we're going to talk about the different types of art you can add to your garden to welcome strangers.
