LOCKS

  • Deadbolts should be at least 1 1/2”
  • Don’t forget the basement door or the door from the house to the garage

LANDSCAPING

  • Don’t block entrances or create hiding places

with your plants and/or bushes

  • Plant thorny or spiny bushes to discourage entry
  • Keep all landscaping well trimmed
  • Position trees so they don’t hide windows, walkways or doors
  • Consider gravel instead of mulch, it’s noisy
  • Don’t create roof access
    • No tree branches below 6 feet
    • Remove ladders when finished with them
