Gary Cowie from Animal House Creationsbluebirdphoto was our guest on this episode of The Garden Gate.? Gary constructs wonderful homes for many of our natural friends. He has thoroughly researched what specifications are needed for proper homes.

The size of the port opening, floor size, etc. will all vary depending on which bird you are trying to attract. His homes have drainage, ventilation, predator guards and more.

We not only discussed bird houses, but butterfly houses and homes for the super pollinator Mason bees!? Very informative.

These houses are all available at The Avant-Garden Shop.
