Blue Mountains City Council


What you can do to prevent Graffiti

  • Maintain your property. Poorly maintained areas attract graffiti vandals.
  • Use plants that climb or screen large blank walls or fences. Spiky plants will also deter graffiti vandals.
  • Where possible improve the lighting around properties.
  • Remove any graffiti as soon as possible.
  • Use dark coloured paint on even surfaces.
  • Use rough, textured materials for the surface of walls.
  • Use high-density, low absorbency materials such as hard-burnt bricks.
  • Use an anti-graffiti surface coating on high-risk hot spots. This will make removal much easier.
