Safety Tips for homes:
Use proper plants for gardening designs!

Plant your garden with the right types of trees as they act as a barrier in protection of your home. It’s silly to think, how may my garden’s plants or trees help in protecting my home?

Here’s how it works – Plants themselves may be strategically positioned to act as are barriers. A thick hedge with tight intertwining branches makes an almost impenetrable barrier. Plants like Bromeliads, Palms, Cycads, Cactus, Succulents, Climbers, Other Shrubs, and Other Sharp Foliage Plants are some the best plants that you can plant that will protect your home in a similar way as a fence would. It is important that they are not too close to paths which you frequently walk otherwise you will get tangled or snared by the thorns all the time. Always plant them in the back in places where you think burglars are more likely to appear and hide. For added protection, a normally bland fence can be enhanced by planting a spiny climber from the list above.

Exterior lighting

Having good exterior lighting helps, but what’s even better is a motion sensor floodlight. When a motion light kicks on, it says “Hey, something’s going on over here.” It’s not having too many exterior lights in all places; it’s about position lights at the right spot, so it can be noticed by you and others too. Do make sure to increase time auto turn off time on motion sensor floodlight more than one minute, please do that and don’t try to save pennies here, or you will be sorry. In case you hear someone outside, by the time you get to the window to peak, your light will go off since they are set by default to fifteen seconds timer only.

Interior Lighting

Normally, we don’t pay attention to interior lights – we never turn off the lights when we walk out of a room. However, when it comes to our home’s safety, leaving lights on can actually save you from getting your precious items stolen. Even better is if you have the lights turned on at certain times when you’re away so that it appears that someone is still in the house. Using lights which operates with timer, will allow you to set lights to turn on and off at different time settings gives the sense of someone being in the home and can prevent burglars from sensing a pattern. There are timer operating systems which makes your TV, radio and other appliance go on and off creating noise ambiance and does not make the house feel empty even when you are not there.
