Pretty but tough plants to secure boundary

Posted: 28/08/2014 at 08:37

With postmen, you need to confront and explain to every one of them on your round.

I had a couple of issues that are now resolved .....however, it took a few reminders.

Most berberis are not too aggressive as boundaries  but a couple of vsrieties are a little too vicious.  

On a local public garden walkway a couple of extremely vicious yuccas have been planted.  Currently they are 4' or so high with erect and near horizontal needle point stems ......very dangerous and a serious situation destined to happen. The gardener said " they look good there". 

So, trespasser-deterring plants need to be consent with care

Fairygirl, you pinched my suggestion.  Berberis Darwinii would be my choice 

Daek evergreen indestructible foliage, orange flowers in spring and those blue berries.   Doesn't have to be a hedge ....a couple at strategic points.
