Thorny shrub instead of barbed wire?
I'm looking to create a barrier that will serve the purpose of security (keeping folks from easily wondering onto my property).
Any ideas that will produce a thorny, difficult barrier?
In some areas, the appearance won't matter... in others, I'll want something that looks good.
For now, I'm thinking of going with a couple hundred feet of Knock Out roses in the publicly viewable areas (even though I am tiring of these kinds of roses).
If not those, I might go with blackberries. They won't look so great, but at least I can get the berries.
In the wooded areas, there won't be a ton of sun, so the barrier has to tolerate shade. On the other hand, looks don't matter. It can be ugly!
