Securing our properties with good security fencing is now a prerequisite in South Africa. We are all aware of the high crime rate, and to keep our family and property safe is our number one priority.
High boundary walls seem to be the best option, but do you know, criminals love high walls. They can scale the walls and enter your property, and once there they are invisible to neighbours and passers-by.
Having a low wall with steel palisade fencing inserts is a good option, although it does limit your privacy if that is your main concern. The low wall will prevent small children and animals from wandering out into the streets, and the palisade will give you a perfect few of all passers-by and anyone attempting to enter, and if you have devils fork razor wire or electric wiring on top, it will be a good deterrent.
A solid wall is not a deterrent to criminals, unless you have electric wiring or razor wire at the top to stop them climbing over. There are many options for secure boundary fencing, and we need to explore each option before making a decision as to which fencing is best suited to our needs.
It is always a good idea to make provision for 100mm drainage pipes every few metres to provide drainage for surplus groundwater that might otherwise dam up behind the wall. Drainage pipes are very good, especially in high rainfall areas.
