Action

Defensive planting is nature’s way of helping to reduce crime. Thieves won’t want to force their way through or over a prickly hedge – especially as only the smallest trace of blood or shred of ripped clothing could help the Police identify the offender.  

To ensure you get the best out of your planting:

  • Use prickly shrubs such as Berberis Julianae or Ilex
  • Use low shrubs where necessary so that natural surveillance will not be impeded
  • Water features can also form part of a defensive boundary
  • Lay gravel, to hear people or vehicles approaching.  

Keep Your Property Safe

Professional thieves are fully aware that gardens can sometimes have very expensive and sought-after property, such as garden tools like lawnmowers and strimmers. Gardens also contain substantial amounts of heating oil, which needs to be protected.

Celebrity Garden designer and broadcaster Lynne Allbutt highlights that as well as ‘defensive planting’, there are several other aspects to consider keeping your garden safe and sound, and they include: 

  • Repair all broken or damaged fence panels and fix gaps in your boundaries. Holes in a fence or hedge are like ‘welcome’ signs to a thief
  • Consider placing trelliswork carefully. In the wrong place it can act like a ladder, allowing easy access for an intruder. Trellis work fixed to the wall of a house, for example, can provide access straight to a bedroom window
  • Instead of locating a shed out-of-sight in your garden, re-think your design and incorporate it as a feature or focal point. This way it can be positioned within sight of the house making it a safer place to keep your tools and belongings. Paint it the same colour as an adjoining fence and also colour co-ordinate benches and other woodwork for maximum visual impact
  • Choose a building that is part shed, part summer house or add a pergola to a simple shed to enhance its appeal
  • Don’t store valuable tools and things in an old greenhouse, where they’re on full view; give the greenhouse away and buy a shed if you need the storage.
