Gardien Tip: There is currently no limit as to what metal objects thieves will take and they will soon have them melted down so retrieval is not feasible. The task, therefore, is to keep items of value in secure storage units such as metal sheds designed for the purpose - see http://www.garden-security.co.uk/Steel-Storage-Unit.aspx
