Secured by Design – safety steps for gardens

October 21, 2022

As part of National Home Security Month 2022, police-backed Secured by Design looks at some simple steps that you can take to keep your garden safe and secure.

The Secured Garden that proved such a hit at the at this year’s Royal Horticultural Society Hyde Hall Summer Flower Show had many techniques incorporated into it to deter opportunistic burglars – and these techniques can be used in any front or rear garden.

The garden – a collaboration between Essex Police, Secured by Design (SBD), RHS Hyde Hall and the Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, with support from a number of SBD member companies and local companies – showed how simple and affordable crime prevention measures can be incorporated into any front or rear garden to add an extra layer of security.

The garden practically demonstrated how the garden environment can be the first line of defence and innovatively demonstrated the application of defensive layered planting, secure boundaries and physical security measures.
