How To Keep Cats Out Of The Garden

by aditya abhishek

Cats are lovable and adorable creatures, but they can also be a nuisance when they start using your garden as their personal litter box or destroy your plants. Follow these tips to save your plants. 

Repellent Spray

Cats are sensitive to smell, they hate the smell of lavender, orange, lemon, citronella, peppermint, lemongrass, rosemary, etc.  Hence, use spray based on these fragrances.

Sound Frequency

As cats are sensitive to smell, they are also sensitive to sound. You can hang bells or wind chimes in your garden to keep cats away from your plants. 

Wash Their Scent

Cats have a habit of visiting the same spot daily. Wash that spot with water to remove the scent of their body & urine so that they don’t recognize their favourite spot

Install Fence

Installing a fence around your garden can be an effective way to keep cats out. Make sure the fence is at least 6 feet tall and has no gaps.

Use Chicken Wire

Lay down mesh or chicken wire over the soil in your garden. This will make it difficult for cats to dig and destroy your garden.

Build Their Home

If you have them as a pet, create a designated area for them. Place a litter box, scratching post, and toys in the designated area.
