Your House Is Secure – What About The Garden?

Theft of garden equipment is a growing menace in Barnet. Securing your garden is the next step to preventing this.

Here are a few tips from our experts for securing your garden:


  • Put away all tools and equipment and ensure that all outside sheds and store cupboards are securely locked.
  • Bring tools inside if you do not have a Barnet garden shed or outbuilding.
  • Use plant protection to keep intruders at bay – such as thorny shrubs
  • Install outside security lighting which comes on automatically.
  • Photograph valuable garden plants or ornaments.
  • If you have a burglar alarm, why not extend it to cover outbuildings and sheds?
  • Mark your property with your postcode (Barnet). This makes the stolen property easier to trace and it can be positively identified as yours.
  • Check that your household insurance policy covers theft from your garden and outbuildings.
  • If you have a local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, why not join?

You can often feel violated to be in a situation you could’ve potentially avoided. Following these steps can give you the peace of mind you’ve been looking for.
