Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas on how we can stop birds from throwing the wood chips in our garden everywhere? They end up all over our path, porch and lawn. We only have a thin border around the garden which is only a couple of centermetres high so I’m not sure if a higher border would stop the wood chips from flying outside the border!!? ..all idea’s welcome as we are not gardeners – help! :)

  • Will be interested in everyone\’s comments. Huge issue with Myna Birds here……



  • I will read this with much eagerness… I have the same issue. Ours appear to mostly be the yucky minor birds…



  • Sounds like you need something to keep the birds away. Jingley, noisey things hanging in the bushes. Shiney things are meant to as well. Plastic snakes. Good old scarecrow. Hope you find something that works, sounds annoying



  • Good luck with that one!!



  • good luck you will need it i cant think of any way to stop it



  • only to try to scare the birds away



  • plastic snakes and fake owls are meant to keep birds away



  • Owls deter birds so look and getting some …. Bunnings have owls



  • This drives me crazy as well, so looking forward in seeing all the answers. If only I had a cat.



  • what did you do in the end



  • there are some good comments here



  • can you put fake snakes ? :P



  • I am being educated, snakes in the garden, owls around the place, never heard of any of this, I hate snakes! But if it works!!



  • How are you going with some of these ideas?



  • i think the plastic snakes or owls sound a great idea..also maybe a cd they wont like the shiny reflections
