Plant "Barberry" (I think that's the way it's spelled). Let the bushes get
to about 6 foot tall. You will not have to worry about any one except the
most dedicated, or motivated, trying to climb the tower.
When we lived in town there was a sidewalk that cut through the block. The
one neighbor had a brarberry hedge along the side walk. One day a teen ager
was in a hurry and cut the corner a little short. Took three people to help
him out of the hedge. "carefully". The suprise was he wasn't dug up near
as much as expected.
