Security window film

Hello All. Interested to hear feedback on this product. In particular, does it actually stop entry into a dwelling if smashed. Thanks.

Can anyone tell me what type of grass this is..

It looks more Kikuyu than buffalo. Buffalo is usually a darker green. Either way, very hardy grass. Don't mow too short though.

We had ours removed. Huge roots are very invasive. Nice looking but they make a huge mess as they are deciduous trees.

Sorry for the confusion. It's not LPG because it's not bottled gas. Just the gas that Origin Energy supplies to residential properties through their gas line network. Thanks.
