How to Deter Cats in Your Garden

Cathy Ashley came up with a brilliant idea to deter cats: Snakes in the grass!

If you are bothered by neighbouring cats visiting your garden and treating it like a public latrine, fear no more. You can enlist the forces of nature and keep their mucky business out of your finely prepared seed beds!

Use snakes in the grass - plastic ones - to keep the cats away. It really does work. There is far less cat poo when the snakes are visible. These attractive ones cost me between 50p and £1 each at the local car boot. Or you can look in your local toy shop.

Cathy Ashley is a permaculturist and gardener. You can follow the development of her council house into an urban farm at the Permaculture House in Totnes on Facebook.
