Why Choose Dovecote Nest Boxes?

A Historical Marvel Meets Modern Garden Elegance

Care & Maintenance: Ensuring Longevity for Your Dovecote Nest Box

Dovecote nest boxes, handcrafted by Riverside Woodcraft, are designed with beauty and durability. To keep these nest boxes looking their best and to ensure they serve your feathered friends for years to come, follow these simple care and maintenance tips:

  1. Regular Cleaning: To maintain a hygienic environment for the birds, cleaning out the dovecote at least once a year is essential. Wear gloves and replace old nesting materials with fresh ones if needed.
  2. Weather Protection: While our dovecote nest boxes are designed to withstand the elements, checking them after extreme weather events is a good idea. Ensure the structure is secure and there's no water pooling inside.
  3. Wood Protection: If you notice any signs of wear on the wooden parts of the dovecote, consider applying a non-toxic wood preservative. This will help protect the wood from rot and maintain its lustrous appearance.
  4. Inspect for Pests: Occasionally, inspect your dovecote for signs of unwanted pests like mites or wasps. If you discover any, immediately address the issue without harming the resident birds.
  5. Positioning: Ensure your dovecote nest box is positioned away from prevalent solid winds or potential flood zones. This not only ensures the birds' safety but also adds to the longevity of the nest box.
  6. Hardware Check: At least twice a year, inspect your dovecote's mounting hardware and fixtures. Tighten any loose screws or brackets to ensure the structure remains stable.
  7. Appreciation: One of the best ways to care for your dovecote is simply to appreciate it. Regular observation can alert you to potential structural issues with the resident bird population.

Remember, a well-maintained dovecote nest box is more than just a beautiful garden accessory; it's a bird sanctuary. With a bit of care and attention, your Riverside Woodcraft Dovecote can remain the pride of your garden for years to come.
