I hesitate to introduce the thought that on occasions birds or animals can be a nuisance, and even then usually manufacture an excuse for their behaviour. Rabbits can be fenced out, although with enough dogs and cats about the garden only the most foolhardy rodent dare show its teeth. Moles will seek less aromatic pastures if moth balls or creosote are inserted into the runs at intervals.
You have used several of time and money on your home to ensure that it is fine-looking inside and out. Your yard is no exception to that, as well as in a lot of manners, its faade might be more imperative that your house's inner.
