As said before, roses around your property.

In my front yard, I have 2 rows of roses. One shorter towards the front, and one taller towards the rear closer to the front. They look good in bloom, and the neighbors just think they're there for looks.

In the back, on the other side of the fence, I planted cactus. I went to the nursery, and found the prickliest cactus. I actually have 3 kinds back there. It's protection, and its edible.

ON the fence I have a blackberry bush. It exploded with growth, and it's extremely thorny. Someone will have to be extremely desperate to go through the cacti and the blackberry.

I know that plants will not stop someone from coming in. But it WILL control the paths they take and possibly slow them down enough that I have a fighting chance.

I'm actually waiting for my other cactus to "sprout" new growth. I have one tall skinny one that I'm using to grow other ones. It works but its slow. I hate being a cheap ass sometimes haha

Same here. Got 1 blackberry on the back fence I weave in and out of it. It always stabs the bajeebus out of me. So I know it'll help against intruders hahahaha

Oh. Forgot fruit trees.

I planted a eureka lemon in the back corner. It has thorns, and once grown in, should butt up to the fence and discourage any body from hopping over. Also put in a Mexican lime/key lime which has thorns also, but that's on the side.

But then again there are better options that aren't food related. Personally, I'm a cheap SOB, and am not growing anything that can't be eaten.

If you were closer, I have a bunch of honey suckle I'm tearing out. When matured, it creates an impenetrable wall. But I don't think it's edible, and haven't found anything saying it is. So it's coming out.
