Bird feeders for the style conscious

I’ve started feeding the birds now that it’s finally getting a bit colder.  We get so many more species than we did in Leatherhead including woodpeckers, tree creepers and even a fat pheasant who seems to have successfully avoided the fortnightly shoot so far!

It’s quite mesmerising watching them in their feeding frenzy although they do seem to get through a lot of seed so it can get expensive if you don’t watch it.

We have a couple of rather unglamorous feeders but there are plenty of stylish bird feeders around and I thought I’d share a few of them with you here.

The first four(including the yellow one above) are available from Red Candy. The bird hotel below is quite fun although I wonder how white it would stay.

I really like these clear feeders which should be easy to keep clean.  They’d look great in a City courtyard garden.

Not on The High Street also have a good range – they’re a little more quirky but still a bit different that your average seed feeder.

And I love this square box feeder which is made by Kedron Natural Products. This would look great mounted on a wall or fence too.

And lastly, these stylish feeders are available from Hen & Hammock …

All these ball feeders are available in a range of colours too.

My life as a Garden Designer – January highlights…

2 Written by Lisa on 14th Feb 2012 in From the drawing board, Inspiration

So what is it that we garden designers do all day?  There are many schools of thought about what we do and often they include something about being outside a lot.  The reality of my life as a garden designer is that I am only “outside” when I am either on site making a planned visit during the construction phase of the project or when I am planting up a garden after the hard landscaping has been finished.
