Keeping Cats out of the Garden

I have several cats in the neighborhood that come and go in my garden. Is there a natural remedy of something I can put in my garden to keep them out. They are stepping all over my pansies and in the spring they step all over the new flowers. Someone suggested moth balls but i am not sure if that is true or not. I just want to keep them out of my garden.

Try lemon or orange peels. Cats dislike like citrus. However, this method may only last for a limited time as the citrus peel decomposed.

Go to The Vinegar Pages at about.com to find a remedy for this and other problems.

One reader's tip, "I have poured vinegar around my children's sand box to keep cats from using it as their litter box. About every two months I reapply just to be sure. It has worked so far."
