A wire in-basket (the ones that look like a freezer basket) can work hard outside too. Turn one upside down and place it over young plants to protect them from curious cats and other creatures. The metal grid keeps pets from uprooting or trampling delicate plants, such as herbs, and will allow your plants to grow freely.
