    When we moved here 7 years ago the local youth were using the garden as a short cut (the fence had fallen down).  I replaced the fence but they climbed over it, so I planted a Rosa rugosa hedge, plus a Rosa moyesii in the far corner of the garden, as a gentle hint that my garden didn't have a public footpath running through it.  Did the trick...  image  Now lots of passers-by admire the scent of the flowers, and the luscious shiny fruit.  image  

    But yes Bekkie, they are thugs...
