Gardien Recommends:

  • To safeguard expensive garden items it is even more important that consideration is given to the overall recommendations outlined in: Walls & Fences walls and fences security Gates & Access
  • Try to ensure that valuable items are not easily visible to the casual passer-by
  • Wherever possible, use a fixing technique to secure valuable items. These can vary depending upon the item and the location. For example:-
    a) Permanent Items, such as Troughs, Birdbaths, Sundials Statuary etc. should be fixed on a solid base using a strong adhesive, such as epoxy patching mortar – available at most builders merchants.
    b) Moveable items, such as Benches, Barbecues, Garden Furniture etc should (when not in use), be chained to permanent ground anchors.
  • Asset Tags which may be suitable for protecting certain items, especially when the tags can be installed unobtrusively.
  • Consider installing a Garden Security CCTV system to secure your valuable garden items - it is a real deterrent, and will capture any individuals trespassing near your garden antiques.
