Creative Fortifications: Make Your Property a Stronghold


( – Your property is likely going to be the safest spot for you following a large-scale disaster. Unfortunately, such scenarios often bring out the worst in people, which is why it’s important to have a plan in place to handle violent aggressors. The best offense is generally a good defense, and fortifying your property will provide a critical advantage should violent mobs ever come knocking.

The following video by Southernprepper1 shows a great way to both fortify your home, and decorate at the same time.

By using cinder blocks and cement, you can create a wall that doubles as a planter. Planting herbs, food, and medicinal plants add to the usefulness of these fortifications when you’re not under siege.

Speaking of sieges, part of surviving one entails being well-supplied. Using your landscape for both defensive and utilitarian purposes only strengthens your position. It also gives your property a makeover.

If done correctly people won’t think twice about its presence — they’ll simply think it’s a cool idea.

Please note, however, you’ll need to check local laws before building any permanent structures. There are still rules and regulations that need to be followed and the last thing you want is to get fined or arrested for building a cement planter. But once you have the green light, explore your creativity when fortifying your property.
