The Security Advantages of Proper Landscaping

Even if you live in a safe neighborhood, making sure your home is secure is not only a good idea for your home, but for your family as well. A Paradise Landscaping, we understand this, and that's why we can help you achieve not only a beautiful landscape at the Lake of the Ozarks but one that adds security as well. If you didn't know you could use landscaping to add to the security of your home - here are a few ways!


An ideal home for burglars is one that is easy for them to get in and out of quickly and easily. While many robberies happen during the day, it's still a good idea to have landscape lighting to help deter them. Not to mention, landscaping lighting can also add a nice ambiance when you want to sit back and enjoy your landscape. We can install lights along pathways, around your home entrance, and even use it to light up your trees - causing an overall lighting effect that keeps your landscape from being dark.


Bushes can help, or they can hinder - and in many cases, they hinder your home security options when not taken care of. If you have shrubs or bushes next to your home that aren't pruned, it makes for a perfect place to hide. Take some time on a regular basis to get out there and keep the shrubs maintained. If you don't have time to do this, Paradise Landscaping offers landscape maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we would be glad to come out and keep your bushes trimmed.

You also want to remember when designing your Lake of the Ozarks landscape that your home should be easily visible from the road. When you hide your home from the road with big trees and bushes, you are providing a safe place for intruders to remain unseen. Keep bushes no higher than two feet to remove the hiding places.

Well Placed Gravel

While many homeowners place gravel next to their home because of potential gutter overflow and drainage, it can also be a security benefit as well. You can hear when gravel is being stepped on, so you'll have a heads up if someone is around your home when they shouldn't be.
