If you’re wondering how to keep cats out of your garden:
1. Make use of smells they don’t like, like lavender, rosemary, and citrus.
2. Make your soil less comfortable to walk on, for example by mulching with gravel.
3. Make it harder for them to dig, for example by laying down netting.
4. Don’t do anything that will actually endanger the cat.
