Keeping Dogs Out of the Garden

Do marigolds and coffee grounds keep dogs away from the garden? And what else can I put down or do?

I like to put temporary chicken wire or a temporary fence around the garden with temporary green metal stakes. I can move these at will.

Do not use coffee grounds, they are fatally toxic to dogs

A method I came across to keep cats away is to sprinkle orange peels and coffee grounds in the garden. Cats apparently hate the smell of citrus. Other types of citrus peels will probable work too, and there are some citrus sprays on the market as well. Dont drink coffee?

Stop by Starbucks* most branches give away free used coffee grounds for composting purposes, but they will work for this method as well. My favorite thing about using the peels and coffee grinds is that not only do they keep the animals out, but they also provide your garden with a fertilizer boost!
