The jewel of mid-summer, the mighty blueberry, is one of the easiest fruits to grow. Beautiful blueberry bushes produce sweet purple-blue orbs each summer (hopefully) and don’t require too much fuss. And these easy DIY blueberry bush covers use PVC pipe, zip ties, and wildlife netting to protect your precious blueberry harvest!

But the thing about blueberries is my kids aren’t the only ones who love them. The birds have taken quite a liking to these delicious fruits. Who can really blame them? Putting wildlife netting over the bushes didn’t help. The birds simply sat on the branches and picked at the fruit in the openings of the nets. And while I love birds, I don’t want to let them feed freely on my ripe, delicious blueberries.
Enter a solution: Easy DIY Blueberry Bush Covers. Some friends of ours have an empty field behind their back fence where they have three blueberry bushes. With the location of their bushes, a field, come lots of blueberry-loving deer. In order to keep the deer from eating all of their berries, they came up with covers made with PVC pipe and wildlife netting. What a perfect and low-cost solution to berry loving critters. And the design is quite simple, a cube made from PVC! Even the youngest gardeners can help put these covers together.
