Landscaping Ideas That Can Make Your Home More Secure

As crime rates in major cities increase, finding clever ways to increase your home’s security is not only shrewd but necessary.

Using landscaping in a way that deters would-be burglars could keep you and your property safe. Simple design concepts will help give your home a polished look that doesn’t take away visibility or aesthetic appearance, but can dissuade perpetrators.

Check out these landscaping ideas below:

1. Plant thorny bushes

These pointy shrubs can give your home added security when strategically placed around windows and points of entry.

2. Prune your hedges

Don’t let unkempt vegetation give potential intruders a place to hide.

3. Trim trees near your home

Trees with low hanging branches that reach toward your upstairs windows could offer access into your home. Cut branches and leave distance between your trees and windows.

4. Light things up

Motion sensor lighting and accent lights can add to your homes décor and security.

5. Use gravel

Stealthy footsteps are all but impossible when one must walk across gravel pathways.
