After sharing my post yesterday about adding gardens to your front yard (to celebrate spring & to make lawn care easier!), my mother pointed out how landscaping her yard helped her feel safer from burglars, and it's a proven deterrent. I definitely thought that was worth a share. Here are some landscaping ideas that will help keep burglars away.
Overall, maintaining your yard is a major deterrent in and of itself. It shows the world you are home, and active in your home. Most burglars are just young armatures, looking for a quick in and out- an empty home!
Do you all have any tips and tricks to add to the list?
