Protect your Property
with Plants

Some
plants and shrubs are excellent in helping to protect your property.

You can beat thieves by using a natural
line of defence, the plants themselves. They can be especially useful
when trying to prevent access over fences and walls or even under your
windows.

They are environmentally friendly and
can attract wildlife to your garden. You can train branches along the
tops of fences and walls to make things more difficult for anyone
attempting to climb over.

Here are some of the best.

Pyracantha

This is my personal favourite as not
only are the thorny branches and very useful on fences and walls, it is
also an extremely beautiful shrub.

Hawthorn 
(Crataegus Monogyna)

This forms a fantastic impenetrable
barrier. Plant in a staggered row, 4 to 1 metre.

 

 

Berberis
Gagnepanii

This shrub has small dense prickly
evergreen leaves, it is extremely suitable grown as a low hedge.

Rosa Fruhlings Gold Yellow

Rosa
Fruhlings Gold Yellow

This fragrant old fashioned rose is
densely prickly – the perfect deterrent.

Many of us have taken
great care in securing our homes
and the property within them, but what about sheds
and garages? 
With the array of equipment – power tools, lawnmowers, bicycles, sports
items and other valuables kept in them, security measures should be just
as strong as our homes, but often they are not!
