How to stop vandalism of GG
« on: January 18, 2011, 07:21:27 AM »
Hi! Do any Guerilla Gardeners out there have any suggestions to stop/minimise vandalism of planted areas? My little bus-stop garden has been hit three times this last week! Plants have been pulled out (some dumped on site, but mainly just missing). Very disheartening, esp as they take so long to establish in the very inhospitable site.

Try planting something with deterents like thorns.  It they require gloves or equipment to remove, people are less likely to haul it to the site to do damage. You could also plant things that are less desirable, for beauty is in the eye of the gardener.
