Bird baths not only look decorative in your yard or garden but also provide song birds with a place to splash, bathe and drink. Sometimes stone bird bath bowls can become cracked, causing the water to leak out. Although you could purchase a new bird bath from a gardening store, you can repair the crack in your damaged bird bath using a patching mixture. This can save you money and allow you to keep a bird bath that you may be fond of.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Scrubby sponge
- Dish soap
- Concrete patching mixture
- Grout trowel
Wet the bird bath bowl thoroughly with water, and scrub it well using dish soap and a scrubby sponge. Rinse the bowl well, then allow it to air dry.
Spread concrete patching mixture over the cracked area of the bowl using a grout trowel.
Press the mixture into the cracks, then smooth it across the surface to remove any demarcation lines.
Tap over the mixture using the tip of a paintbrush, which will blend the patching mixture into the bowl to make it look like it hasn't been patched.
Allow the bowl to air dry completely before use.
