The only really long term effective way to keep dogs or cats out of flower beds is to put a layer of lava rock on the flower bed surface. Animals will not walk on these sharp rocks. (05/15/2008)
I covered my flowerbed with large round stones, and the dogs still travel through but don't hurt anything anymore. The chicken wire works great, and you can cut it into squares that are easy to lay down and take up, like a foot square each. Dogs and cats both can't stand wires between their toes. (05/18/2008)
