Your home’s landscaping can play an important part in good home security. Here are some tips to help deter your home becoming a target for possible break-ins or robberies.
Mow your lawn frequently and keep your yard neat and tidy. A messy yard can imply the home is vacant.
Use outdoor lighting and motion-detectors on the exterior of the home.
Keep trees trimmed. Overhanging branches can be used to access open windows or open doors on a second floor.
Plant low growing bushes or thorny flowers around windows to discourage any attempted access to the home.
Keep shrubs and landscaping trimmed in order to allow your neighbor a clear view of the exterior of your home.
