Tip: Keep a birdbath level

My neighbor had problems keeping her birdbath level until she used a paver underneath it. She removed the birdbath and dug a 3-inch deep area the size of the paver and spread sand in the hole and pressed it in place until it was level. Since then the birdbath has stood straight and level.
