What Houzz contributors are saying:

Housekeeping for the birds. We love to encourage birds to visit our garden, especially swallows, which help keep the mosquito population under control. March is the time to clean out their nesting boxes, to get them ready for the new brood. Are you ready for spring? See more regional garden guides
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's March Checklist
Attract birds by setting up nesting boxes in your landscape. Early to mid March is the best time to get them established. Start by researching the box specifications for the type of birds you want to attract. The size of the box, size and location of the hole, height above ground for placement etc. are all species specific. The National Wildlife Federation has some great information to help you be successful in creating a nesting box and observing the birds that use it.

I love the look. I'll definitely place one among grasses.
