Here are some home security tips relating to your landscaping:
– Tall bushes or shrubs that hide your doors or windows from street view make it easier for burglars to break in without being observed. They also provide hiding places for tools and stolen property. Keep your bushes trimmed so that they don’t provide cover for potential burglars.
– Mow your lawn, rake your leaves, and generally keep your yard neat. That will send the message that your house is occupied.
