Walls And Fences

keeping your property's perimeter secure

  • Property stored in sheds and outbuildings is potentially at risk from thieves.

Gardien Recommends:

  • Install good quality, robust fencing with concrete posts or metal fixings.
  • Make sure that fencing panels are secure and non-removable.
  • Using "Razor Spike" on walls or fences which are over 2m. high.
  • Security lighting. Thieves hate them, whether, Motion-Activated or Dusk-to-Dawn. Check out our range of garden security lighting.
  • If you have a persistant problem with vandals or intruders in your garden, capture them on a garden cctv.
