How to Make a Hummingbird Garden Design

The best way to start hummingbird garden plans is with a simple drawing of your garden.

If you are creating a garden to attract hummingbirds then special planning can be included.

There are unique considerations to add that have worked like a charm for us.

  • Narrow gardens are better. (Let's remember that we are taking into account the needs of hummingbirds. In this case, it is easier for them to access the garden from either side.)
  • Curving flower beds work also. (These allow approach from all sides. When you observe your hummingbirds after your flowers have bloomed, you will understand the reason. The hummingbirds are usually fighting for territory.Our Curved Hummingbird Flower Garden Design gbirds have excellent eyesight. We want them to be able to spot the flowers easily. Hummingbirds can see clusters of plants easier than one flower.)
  • Layering blooms:
  • Tallest plants in back or in the center if it is accessible around the circumference of the garden. An example: Phlox
  • Middle size plants in the middle. An example:
  • Small plants in the front. An example: Salvia Sage

These hummingbird garden plans will create a much more attractive garden for you to appreciate as well. It enables these tiny, speedy birds numerous opportunities to find these blooms, more flowers to linger at, and more chances for you to watch them.

Jim and I enjoy sitting in front of our hummingbird garden with feeders hung in the center to watch our little friends. We chose as yard art to complement the beauty of the flower garden. The hummingbirds are especially busy in the evening zipping from flower to feeder and guarding territory from each other by perching on a nearby tree branch. They are a joy to witness.

Here is a video of a young lady dancing for the camera at one of our feeders in our hummingbird garden.

  • Avatar Pine I want to start a garden next Sping, any nice flowers in mind that will attract birds?
    Nov 24, 2013 by Pine | Posted in Garden & Landscape

    I want to make a garden plan for next Spring so I can start to attract more birds to my backyard.
    Are there any nice plants or flowers that would help me attract them?

    • Flowers attract hummingbirds. Other birds are attracted by fruits, seeds, and insects that are also attracted to fruits and seeds. A true bird garden will have some open space, grasses and flowers, some trees, and some dense bushes to provide cover. Native plants are usually the best choice for attracting birds. Also, don't forget to have shallow water, both for bathing and drinking. Below are several links to sites with more info.
