Good perimeter walls add security to your property and at the same time they delineate property lines.
You want your family to be comfortable in your own home, therefore security is a top priority. Your fence or wall is your first line of defence and, if professionally erected will not only guard your property, but will buy you time to get help should the need arise.
For added security you can train an old English Rambling Rose over the entire fence. Once it is established there is no way anyone is going to get over that wall or fence. The old English Rambling Rose is well known for its vicious thorns.
If you are wanting aesthetic beauty as well, then the old English Rose is a really good option, as during the summer months you are rewarded with an abundance of beautiful, fragrant roses.
There are things which you, as a homeowner can do to help ensure your property is secure and as safe as you can possibly get it.
Start thinking like a criminal.
A criminal would inspect your fence to see whether there are any weak spots where they can gain access.
Do the same.
Make a habit of regularly taking a walk around your property and inspect the wall or fence to ensure that there are no weak spots, which are an open invitation to criminals.
There are ways to upgrade your fencing to help ensure your safety. You can have a variety of toppings to make your property unattractive to would-be intruders, e.g. roller spikes, or electric fencing.
You can raise your wall or fence to aid in making it more safe and off-putting to criminals.
Make sure you have an anti-vandalism bracket on your gate motor to prevent it from being tampered with.
If you feel you need your wall or fence raised, or you would like to have a good security wall or gate installed, or to request a free quotation, please do not hesitate to contact us at Country Wide Walling to discuss your options with one of our professional consultants.
Help is only a phone call away.
