- Birdbaths should never be set directly on dirt or mulched beds. A patio stone must be placed under the base of the birdbath unless it is sitting on a deck or patio that does not allow standing water to accumulate around the base.
- If water remains in a birdbath bowl during the winter and freezes, the bowl could crack. The best winter care for a birdbath is to store the unit in a garage, barn, etc. At a minimum, the bowl must be flipped over. If there are still recesses that can hold water, they can freeze and crack. Cover appropriately.
- Do not use any type of heating or deicing device in any type of birdbath during the winter. Not properly winterizing your birdbath voids any warranty.
