Cats Peeing and Pooping in Same Spot Outside Box?

I have an area in the house that is unfinished and there is a small spot where it is dirt/stone that needs to be covered in cement prior to being completed. The problem is that the cats love to pee/poop on it! I can't blame them, as it probably seems like a big litter pan. My problem is how do I get the pee smell out of dirt? I need to keep them from messing in that area, as it is really starting to smell. I have tried saturating it in Nature's Miracle Urine Remover, essential oils, a hydrogen peroxide/baking soda solution, and covering it with aluminum foil (one kitty actually scraped it out of the way to go potty!) Their boxes are kept extremely clean and there are plenty of them. Unfortunately I cannot close the cats off from this area. I may try some crushed red pepper as I have heard that sometimes works. Any ideas would be super!

You can try Nok-Out. It is available on amazon and eliminates many odors.

Try a liquid formula designed to keep them from peeing in that same spot. Here is one example:

Do not use the red pepper solution. If cats pick it up on their feet and then scratch their heads they can get the pepper in their eyes.

Please do not use any kind of pepper flakes. It can get on their paws and blind them.

Can you use baby gates to block off the area? Or canyou use those cute metal or plastic things that people use to edge their yards to set up a barrier? I know those are not tall, but they may act as a barrier and the cat's won't want to bother hopping over them to potty.

To get rid of the smell, can you just shovel up the dirt and take it outside and toss it away from the house (or in the trash? Then before you finish the area, use sand or gravel to cover the space and then finish over the concrete?

Hope you can find an easy solution. Prayers and blessings to all!
