Securing your garden ornaments and furniture

Posted on August 6, 2021 at 1:44 pm

It is a sad fact that in some areas in particular, you have to be very careful about leaving your garden ornaments and furniture on display. Theft is in the increase and lots of people are looking for a way to make a quick buck. Sometimes criminals will steal items to order or to sell on to others but other times you may just fall victim to vandalism.

If you have items in your garden that you want to protect them you may wish to anchor them down using a chain or bolting them into the ground. Having items of value in easy reach of the kerb is never a good idea. Ideally you should try and put them in the back garden or as close to your house as possible.  

Make hanging baskets harder to steal by hanging them on lockable brackets or by threading chain through the basket rim and attaching it to the wall. Marking your items with a UV pen or smart water can often allow you to get them back should they become stolen. CCTV systems are another way to add extra security to the outside of your property. You can often set up alerts on the CCTV system to notify you if movement is picked up within your property boundaries.
