Birdbaths make a charming addition to any garden. Shown here is the Classic Birdbath in English lead.
The use of water in the garden to nurture nature is seen most obviously in the use of a birdbath. With interest in gardening expanding to the upwardly mobile middle class in the 1800s more homeowners turned to gardening as a way to spend time outside and to increase their property values. Birdbaths were one of the first garden ornaments that were easily purchased and a simple, yet satisfying, focal point for a new garden.
