Dave and I finally got around to landscaping around our parrot aviaries in the back yard. We outlined them with white bricks and planted small plants all the way around and covered it all in red rock, even behind the aviaries to the fence.
We even dug out 2-3 inches of dirt in the entering part of the cages and put in white sand with stepping stones to match. The bottom of the aviaries are just a dark sand and dirt, what they have been since we moved into the house. Some of them had some grass, but our cockatoo Bandit ate it all, or at least pulled it out for fun. Not only does he know the trick the "lawn mower" but he actually is one, too!

We were quoted $2,500 for this landscaping project and said no way! Instead we did it ourselves for $600. The plants were only under $2 each and the bags of red rock were $4 each.
