You could take a spare key. Put it in a sealed container. Then bury it. If that day ever comes you just have to unbury the key. It's a lot safer than leaving a "hide-a-key" somewhere. I doubt any theives are going to dig in random areas for a key. You might want a marker of some kind so you can remember where to dig.
