I'd suggest that if you restrict what the garrisons see, you should at least
let them see the following things:

People taking resources from the region (mining, cutting trees, fishing), etc.

Combat taking place in the region.

Stacks with more than X men in them. (Hard to miss that many people)
X can be 10, or 20, or 50, or whatever.

This way, the empire builders will notice if someone is stealing their
resources, or if an army is approaching, but spies (single units) can
come and go, unless the watch is specifically out for them.
