Okay, so an in-ground swimming pool is a little out of your budget and you’re not quite ready to sacrifice your yard’s aesthetics for a plastic wading pool.

6. Introduce a bird bath

Not enough space for a swimming pool or a pond? Installing a bird bath is a great idea even if your outdoor space is a balcony. You may even be lucky enough to attract a few birds (of the feathered variety).
