Boundary Protection

electric fencing toppingAlthough boundary walls and fences are mainly erected for security purposes, to keep criminals from entering your property, if you have a good quality and professionally erected fence or wall, it will also give a pleasing aesthetic look to your property.

Aesthetically pleasing boundary walls or fences not only add to the value of your property, they also add to the character of the neighbourhood. You must always remember that boundary walls and fences that front onto public streets are highly visible, and therefore you need to make sure that it is not only a security feature, but is also aesthetically appealing.

shadow of person climbing fenceMany homeowners are tending to install extra security on top of boundary walls and fences, as the crime rate is high, and criminals need to be kept out.

Electric fencing, razor wire, barbed wire and spikes are all utilized for this purpose, and are very off-putting to would-be intruders.

Always check which of these are permitted in the area in which you live, as different areas have different rules.

Always keep the area close to the walls tree free, so as not to give anyone easy access to your property via an overhanging tree branch.

Make sure the foundations to your wall are deep so that nobody can dig under them, and do regular checks to see if anyone has tried tampering with your walls.

To avoid any unpleasantness, contact your local authority about what is permissible when you put up a boundary wall or fence.

Making Wise Security Decisions

razor wire palisade fenceHaving a perimeter wall or fence in South Africa is a great way to prevent crime in residential areas.

It is very wise to choose to install a concrete wall or fence as your first line of defence against criminals.

Concrete Palisade is a really good option, as criminals cannot easily hide behind the fence, and can be easily seen when they try to breach your property.

Concrete Palisade can be topped with Electric fencing or Razor Wire to give added protection, and making it so much less appealing to would be intruders. A good idea is to never grow shrubs or high plants at the front of the palisades as it gives criminals a place to hide in order to breach your property unseen.

Never plant trees close to your fencing, as criminals can easily use their overhanging branches to get over your boundary and onto your property. Have nothing close to the fencing, dustbins, drums, etc., that way you are not making it easy for potential criminals, and will be more difficult for them to intrude.

Crown of Thorns is, however, a good plant to use, should you wish to do so, as it has thorns nobody wishes to mess with. A rambling rose bush can also be used should you really want shrubbery, it has thorns but also gives you pretty roses.

Good advantages of Concrete Palisade include:

• Intruders cannot hide behind it
• Intruders cannot easily climb over
• It stays strong over time
• It withstands harsh weather conditions
• It will not rust and deteriorate
• It cannot be damaged by fires
• It is practically maintenance free
• It is much cheaper than for instance brick walls.

If you choose to have Concrete Palisade Fencing around your property, it is a good idea to have a concrete base laid to rule out the possibility of anyone gaining access by digging underneath the fencing.

A good alternative is to have the palisade fitted on top of a concrete or brick wall.

With all the options available to you, we, at Country Wide Walling, will gladly assist and advise you on what your best option for your property should be.
