Hedge – If you want a garden that is great for nature, then a hedge is the way to go. There are many different plants that are great for creating a hedgerow, but native plants are best for attracting wildlife, as well as being easier to care for as they are used to the British climate. Evergreen hedge plants include holly and some types of conifers, and blackthorn is a great hedgerow plant for deterring burglars due to its long spikes. It also produces sloes which can be used to make delicious gin in the winter!

Fence – A fence is fairly inexpensive and comes in many different styles and sizes. If you want a fence that is great at keeping intruders out, the taller the better – get a professional like this fencing Cheltenham based company www.greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/fencing/ to install it for you. There are lots of things that you can do with a fence, but be aware that you need to care for and maintain them to get good value from them.

Wall – A brick wall is a strong boundary and is a great choice if it is the longevity and low maintenance that you want, as well as strength and security. You will have to get it built by a bricklayer, which could be a longer process, but the value that you get from it is worthwhile.
