Setting the birdbath straight

Judith Adam

The heavier a birdbath is (and also consider the weight of its volume of water), the stronger and deeper a foundation is necessary to resist frost movement and keep it upright and straight. The weight of a concrete birdbath placed directly on the ground causes the soil underneath to settle unevenly (tilting the bowl) in a matter of weeks.
