garden security for every garden


The garden is a brilliant place to enjoy the outdoors and indulge in alfresco dining like BBQ parties. There are lots of ways you can improve privacy and provide more protection for your family. Here are some of the most effective methods.


1. Fences 


One way of adding more privacy is to install solid fencing all around your garden. It should be tall enough to prevent passers-by from seeing over it, but you can add trellis to the top if you’re trying to avoid being overlooked by neighbours.

A Cheaper Alternative to A Brick Wall


A solid fence provides a similar level of privacy as a brick wall but at a far lower price. While its primary function is to make the garden more private, it can also work as a decorative item. It can be painted to suit the garden design and plants.

2. Automated Gates


A great way to make life easier and provide a degree of protection for cars parked on your driveway is to install an automated gate. It allows you to control vehicle access to your property and make it easy for you to operate the gates at the touch of a button.

Increase Security and Privacy of Your Whole Property

3. Hedges 


Hedges provide a natural alternative to fences and walls. They can be grown from seeds or seedlings or planted part grown.


A Green and Natural Source of Security 


Some plants are ideal for hedges as they grow quickly and provide a dense barrier around your garden. However, fast-growing conifers such as Leylandii must be kept in check with regular trimming as they grow quickly and can reach heights taller than two-story houses.

4. Brick Wall


Building a brick wall around your garden can increase security and privacy. However, while a tall wall will provide more privacy and security, the cost will be significantly higher


A Secure and Reliable Security Solution


If the garden is joined onto others, it is essential to look into planning permission to ensure that you can build on the boundary. 


5. Outdoor Lighting 


Securing the entrance to the grounds is important, but so is a well-lit garden. Having lights in a garden can help to improve security by discouraging potential intruders


Outdoor lighting can be purchased at reasonable prices from many garden centres and online stores. It is recommended to opt for bright lights that illuminate a large proportion of the garden; it may be necessary to install a few if the garden is of significant size


Ensure Your Whole Garden Is Well Lit and Deters Potential Intruders 


Solar panel lights are a great way to brighten a garden in the dark, and they don’t use electricity! Not only do they save you money, but they are also beneficial to the environment as they are powered by sunlight.
