Security and Gardens
Overgrown Shrubs, Trees and Bushes are a Thieves dream. They offer concealment from the Road, Neighbours and anyone passing by. The offer ideal hiding spots. They inhibit your view of the street and yard and they can offer entry points to upstairs windows and balconies.
Regularly trimming overgrown gardens and trees can minimise your chance of being broken into. We recommend all shrubs are 3 foot or shorter.
Consideration to bushes with thorns make it harder for criminals to hide in your yard and enter your house. Climbing Roses are ideal to be planed on a fence to discourage burglars. Barberries, Bougainvillea are examples of ideal bushes to be planted below windows.
Any over hanging branches should be trimmed away from Roofs, Doors, Windows and Balconies.
