Secure your Garden and Outbuildings
If you have a garden, it’s the first thing an intruder will
have to deal with if they want to try and break into your house. There
may also be items in your garden, shed or garage that a thief will
find attractive. Take some simple steps to secure your garden and
How can I stop thieves entering and stealing from my garden?
• Keep hedges, walls and fences low (max 1.2 metres) at the
front of the property to make it harder for an intruder to work unseen.
Rear fences and walls should be a minimum 1.8 to 2 metres in height.
• Grow aggressive shrubbery which is hard for intruders to climb
• Security lighting will act as a deterrent.
• Locate bins so that they cannot be used easily as a step to
climb over fences or walls.
• Lock away garden implements, furniture or tools in a secure
shed, garage or store.
What can I do to protect property in my shed and garage?
• Photograph valuable items of garden furniture and garden tools.
Note and keep a record of make, model, colour and serial numbers and
use a UV pen or similar to security mark them with your house number
• Use a chain or other device to lock garden tools and furniture
together to the structure to make them harder to remove.
• Fit a good quality hasp and padlock to the door, fitted with
dome headed or non-returnable screws to prevent tampering.
• Secure windows and don’t give intruders the opportunity
to see inside.
• If you have an intruder alarm, consider extending it to cover
sheds, garages and outbuildings and ensure that there is a visible
external sounder box.
• If you do not have a secure shed then bring items inside –
don’t leave them lying out.
• If your garage adjoins your home and there is a through door,
keep it locked.
