I would like to make a bird bath. What are the best materials to use? Also how tall should it be?
We have always used cement to make a homemade one. Just smooth out nicely. Can leave roughness one edges so birds have good purchase.
How tall depends on how many cats will be prowling on it? You want to see the birds bathe and drink so about knee high. We have ours on the ground....
Near a tree for shelter the rest open so the birds can see your animal approaching them and get away!
