How to Keep Your Property From Being Used as a Shortcut

• Fences, while best, are not always practical either financially or due to building code restrictions
 Rosa Rugosa Roses are full, larger growing hedge shrubs with terrible thorns sure to keep out children and adults alike.
• Red barberry is a lower growing shrub that produces thorns that will deter people. Russian Olive is another extremely thorny plant, but it may be banned in some areas.
• Lattice panels can be secured upright or long ways to form an open fence-type barrier. Vines can be planted to grow up the panels such as Bignonia Tangerine Beauty or English Ivy.
