Planting (Designing out Crime)

Defensible planting of spiny or thorny
plants can help prevent graffiti and
loitering, enhance security, and keep
the public to designated pedestrian
routes. Appropriate plant species
include Holly (Ilex aquifolium),
Hawthorn (Crateagus spp),
Berberis (Bereris julianae),
Firethorn (Pyracantha spp),
Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa), and
Rose (Rosa rugosa/canina).
Further advice is contained in
Wrexham County Borough
Council’s Local Planning Guidance
Note 7 “Landscaping”.
