1. Any bird bath set outside should never be set directly on dirt or mulched beds. A patio stone must be placed underneath it, unless it is sitting on a deck or patio that does not allow standing water to accumulate around the base of the bird bath.
2. If water lies in a bird bath bowl during the winter and freezes, the bowl could crack. The best winter care for a bird bath is to store the unit in a garage, barn, etc. At minimum, the bowl must be flipped over. If there are still recesses that can hold water, they can freeze and crack. Cover appropriately.
3. Do not use any type of heating or de-icing device in any type of bird bath during the winter. Not properly winterizing your bird bath voids any warranty.
ATTENTION: Bird baths and other garden ornaments are not toys, and are not meant to be climbed on or played around.
