Although boundary walls and fences are mainly erected for security purposes, to keep criminals from entering your property, if you have a good quality and professionally erected fence or wall, it will also give a pleasing aesthetic look to your property.
Aesthetically pleasing boundary walls or fences not only add to the value of your property, they also add to the character of the neighbourhood. You must always remember that boundary walls and fences that front onto public streets are highly visible, and therefore you need to make sure that it is not only a security feature, but is also aesthetically appealing.
Many homeowners are tending to install extra security on top of boundary walls and fences, as the crime rate is high, and criminals need to be kept out.
Electric fencing, razor wire, barbed wire and spikes are all utilized for this purpose, and are very off-putting to would-be intruders.
Always check which of these are permitted in the area in which you live, as different areas have different rules.
Always keep the area close to the walls tree free, so as not to give anyone easy access to your property via an overhanging tree branch.
Make sure the foundations to your wall are deep so that nobody can dig under them, and do regular checks to see if anyone has tried tampering with your walls.
To avoid any unpleasantness, contact your local authority about what is permissible when you put up a boundary wall or fence.
