    My children’s trampoline is in the corner of my garden as I had a bark area built for the sole purpose of the trampoline but unbeknown to me that this corner of my garden is hole to lots of birds, especially pigeons. They are forever sitting along the top of the trampoline and pooing on it which ofcourse means my children can’t use it. Does anyone Know how to put a stop to this?


    This is a more common problem that one might think. As a gardener, I’ve seen many gardens with trampolines covered in bird faeces and I’ve seen many customers fix this problem too. One customer simply tied cable ties along the edge of the trampoline with the ends sticking upwards, much like spikes. This will stop the birds from sitting on the trampoline.

    Another way I’ve seen is when a plastic toy snake has been put on the trampoline which surprisingly worked really well and another customer used it as an opportunity to build a couple of scarecrows with her children and plot them on either side of the trampoline which worked really well too. When it comes to keeping birds away from your garden there seems to be a few cheap and effective ways. I will write a full article soon and update a link here when I’ve written it.


    I had a problem where pigeons would sit on my pagola and poo all over the patio below. In the end I hammered nails along the top frame of the pagola which doesn’t look pretty but does the job. Reading this I think I’ll give try some more aesthetically pleasing methods.


    I have Tatub16FT Trampoline and I play with my kids, before closing the game, I always cover it with a sheet or plastic to avoid nasty material.
