Have you got a pet that you need to keep secure within your garden? Perhaps children that like to have a wander? Either way, it’s important to keep the perimeter of your garden secure but you don’t want to affect your stunning garden design. You’ll be please to know there are ways in which you can keep your garden secured without affecting the design aspect. You’ll be pleased to know these tried and tested methods are also very affordable and practical.
Fencing is one of the most obvious ways to protect your boundaries. Simple to install, and low in cost, fencing is one of the most used solutions. The great thing about fencing is it can come in many different colours, so you can match it to your garden design. Fencing adds privacy along with security.
Another method to keep your garden secure is the use of hedges and shrubs. This is a particularly great way to keep your garden secure if you are concerned about losing the design aspect. If you have a traditional garden design, hedges and shrubs are great for keeping with the theme. The hedges can provide depth and height to your garden design whilst also creating a physical barrier.
A method which you may not have considered is physical walls. You are likely to have noticed that larger houses will have physical walls around the perimeter of the property. You don’t need to have a large home to have boundary walls, in fact these can also go around gardens and smaller homes. To keep design consistency, you could even make the wall perimeter the same material as your home which will give a better overall appearance to your design.
If your home already has a wall in place but you need extra height on your perimeter (perhaps you have a dog which enjoys jumping!) then you could use some metal railings for additional height. Metal railings can be quick to install, requiring very little or no maintenance other than the original cost and a lick of paint every now and then.
This brings us onto the use of the garden gate. If you have a wall or fencing around the perimeter of your garden then you may as well use a gate as well. This will provide you with easy access to your garden and can help you keep your garden secure.
