Erecting a good, sturdy fence or wall around your property is very important if you want to protect your property and family from unwelcome intruders.
Whether you already have a wall or fence, take the time to inspect it, especially from the street side so that you can get a different view of your property.
Criminals will stake out a property, sometimes for days before they attempt entering, and taking a look from their perspective will help you see whether your walling or fencing is adequate to protect your property and family.
If anyone has tried to tamper with your wall or fence, you need to fix it immediately and not leave it as it will be a weak spot in your security. Sometimes criminals try to dig under the walls or fencing, so ensure that the footing is deep enough to discourage them.
Keep curtains and blinds closed to avoid any window shopping being done. When criminals case your property they will be encouraged to find a way in if you have obvious valuables which they can see through open curtains or blinds.
Besides adding deterrents like spikes or razor wire to your walling or fencing, there are other methods to make it extremely unpleasant for anyone trying to break in.
Plant thorny bushes around windows, which are aesthetically pleasing, they are also able to collect DNA from blood and skin. No criminal likes to leave such evidence around and would rather find a different target elsewhere. Even torn clothing left behind will be evidence.
There are many aesthetically pleasing plants and shrubs available with the ability to deter a would be criminal with their thorns which can rip and cut them leaving enough DNA as evidence. These are the best shrubs to plant around any place where a criminal will likely try to hide or break in, such as windows.
Firethorn is one such shrub and is a really good addition to your security. Although they have very pretty flowers, their thorns are a deadly deterrent to anyone trying to climb over them.
The safety of your property and family is your no 1 priority, and besides ensuring that you have the best possible fencing or walling available, plus cameras and security companies, you need as much security as possible to deter or slow down a would be criminal and ensure that your security company can arrive to help you in time.
