Recommended Plants For Security Landscape Around Windows

Q: We would like to incorporate security landscaping around the windows of our new home. What plants would you recommend?

A: Several come to mind. Roses would certainly be high on the list but Chinese holly, barberry and mahonia would be equally deterrent. Before using them, consider the pruning job you’ll need to do each year. None of these are small shrubs. Their size can be controlled with regular pruning but plan on wearing protective gear when you do it.
