Best Methods for Bird Proofing a Garden

Moroso 62602 - Transmission Mount | O'Reilly Auto PartsI have a small garden that I have been growing in my back yard for a number of years now. However, recently I have had some problems with pests getting into my garden, and eating some of my crop. It is really a bothersome problem that I hope to be able to take care of in the near future. I am trying to expand my garden this year, to have even more types of crops, and to take up more land than it has in previous years. I am looking into techniques for bird proofing right now so that I will be prepared to keep birds from getting into my garden this year. I really want to keep the birds out to the largest degree that I possibly can.

I have other problems with pests too that I would like to address this year as well.
