Landscaping and Lights

When planning your landscaping, think like thieves and know your enemy:

  • Remove trees and brnaches of trees close to your home that give burglars access to upper levels.
  • Trim your trees and shurbbery; don't give them some where to hide.
  • Install porch lights and be attentive to burned out bulbs.
  • Leave a light on, preferable on each floor, when you go out in the evening.
  • Install motion sensitive lights
  • Keep your lawn well maintained so that they know that the house is attended to and constantly inhabitated.
  • Plant low thorny bushes below your windows
