Security Tips

Low front boundary;

Keep hedges and walls at the front of your house low so burglars have nowhere to hide.

Secure side gate;

Keep side gates locked at all times. Open gates mean burglars can easily access your home without being seen by passers-by or neighbours.

High side and rear boundaries with trellis and spiky defensive planting;

Keep hedges, walls and fences around your back garden high. Add lightweight trellis on top of gates and fences and plant some prickly plants to make it harder for burglars to climb over.

Gravel driveway and path;

Gravel driveways and paths make it harder for burglars to go undetected.

Security lights;

Install an outside security light so that intruders can’t approach without being seen.

Burglary alarm system;

Install a burglar alarm system.

Secure shed door and window;

Always keep your shed locked and secured. Often sheds contain valuables such as power tools and bicycles.

Never leave tools lying around;

 Never leave tools lying around as they can be used as a way of forcing entry into your home.
