Eco-Friendly Gardens: These are the best green screens for birds

1 May 2024

Birds not only bring life and color to gardens but also play an essential role in the ecosystem by controlling insects, spreading seeds, and assisting with pollination. Planting green screens is therefore a great way to attract and support these winged friends.

Green Screen as a shelter for birds

The dense structure of Mobilane Green Screens provides birds with a safe shelter against predators and harsh weather. Birds can hide and rest among the leaves, making them feel secure in their surroundings.

Green Screen provides nesting opportunities for birds

The density and height of green screens provide an excellent habitat for bird nests. Birds can build nests between the branches, offering them protection from predators and disturbances. Additionally, the steel grid in which the hedge is cultivated makes it easy to hang nest boxes.

Green Screen as a food source for birds

Some varieties of Mobilane Green Screens, such as Pyracantha (Firethorn), can produce berries or seeds that serve as a food source for birds. These berries and seeds can attract birds and provide them with important nutrients, especially in winter when other food sources are scarce. Birds like thrushes, blackbirds, and starlings particularly enjoy the berries of the Firethorn and will gladly consume them as a supplement to their diet.

Green Screen provides nectar and attracts insects.

Green screens like Pyracantha and Jasmine attract insects by offering nectar. The flowering plants attract insects such as butterflies and bees, which in turn serve as food for birds.
