How to solve the problem of vandalism?

Two days ago we had a problem, 26 plants were destroyed, and what's worse is that they were all boarded up, it means that the vandals had to work harder to reach them. But that's not all, they even brought additional tools to destroy them. My question is how to prevent this kind of vandalism?

      Apr 4 2013: its not in my neighbornhood, it was planted next to the road, and it had fence around every single plant. I want to see how to fix problem on global level. Because it kind of hurt when thay "distroy" something what is good, healthy, and even beautiful.
      • Apr 4 2013: oh ok.i see now. yeah . thats a pretty vulnerable area along a public road. theres no quick fix for ignorance. from what it sounds the dummies probly thought they were doin a good thing.but then again, sometimes people do destructive mean things for the sole purpose of being destructive and mean because thats what they like.its crazy.
