make money on amazon ukfew people have gardens now. but they do have colony parks. and most people do nothing about their parks except blame the local municipality for not looking after them. they use the parks as cricket grounds, dumping yards, no man’s land, a place for ayahs and children to sit in the evenings. anything but the oxygen belt that it is supposed to be. when you design and look after a park, you are simply looking after your own life and the value of your property.
among my most memorable moments of childhood are the discoveries of birds nesting in the garden. nests captivate people of all ages and can stimulate a lifelong interest in nature. as people learn to enjoy the beauty of birdlife around their home, they may wish to improve the "habitat" in their parks so that more birds will visit. you can attract birds by placing bird feeders, nest boxes, and bird baths in the park, and by planting a variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers. these can provide good nesting sites, winter shelter, places to hide from predators, and natural food supplies that are available year-round.
you can probably double the number of bird species with a good landscaping plan. most birds in cities die because they have no nesting spots,no food and no water. you can populate your entire colony with birds.by arranging your trees, you can lower winter heating and summer cooling bills for all the houses around the park. plants prevent soil erosion. you will have less dust flying around in the
area.a good landscaping plan will contribute to a beautiful, natural setting around your home that is pleasing to people as well as birds. it will also increase property values.a fun hobby is to keep a list of all the birds seen in the park. i have over 20 species of birds in my garden. a habitat can stimulate young people to develop a lifelong interest in wildlife and conservation.some plants that attract wildlife are also appealing to people. berries like shehtoot, jamun, kamrakh, amla can be shared by people and wildlife.
while it might be difficult to learn the food habits of the birds you wish to attract, the basic requirement would be fruit,berries,grain . semal, pipal,neem, are important. shrubs and flowers can also provide nectar, seeds and berries.different trees provide food at different times of the year. for instance ber in winter , semal in spring, mango in summer. you can probably double the number of bird species by providing a source of water. a frog pond, water garden, or bird bath will get lots of bird use, especially if the water is moving. birds need places where they can hide from predators and escape from severe weather. trees (including hollow ones), shrubs, tall grass, and bird houses provide excellent shelter. don’t use any pesticides in the park and ask the municipal gardeners not to do it either.
nectar-producing shrubs and vines are very popular for attracting hummingbirds and orioles. flowers with tubular red corollas are especially attractive to hummingbirds. hibiscus and hamelia are both pretty and attractive to birds

draw a map of the park . identify buildings, sidewalks, powerlines, buried cables, fences, existing trees, shrubs. consider how your plan relates to the houses(will the tree you plant shade out someone’s vegetable garden?) map sunny or shady sites, low or wet sites, sandy sites. identify areas for pets, benches, pond,playing and paths. also an area where a pit can be made where people throw their vegetable peels so that free organic manure is available. ask the houses to keep a bucket near the kitchen sink and dump non-sudsy water in it (such as the fluid from canned goods or the water that a pan has been soaked with or the water that you was fruit or vegetables before eating) - this water can be dumped on the garden along with all your food scraps.
trees should be drawn to a scale that represents three-fourths of their mature width and shrubs at their full mature width. this will help you calculate how many trees and shrubs you need. there is a tendency to include so many trees that eventually your yard will be mostly shaded. be sure to leave open sunny sites where flowers and shrubs can thrive.
its easy to make and maintain a park. you will not only enjoy yourself but save the world as well.
