1. Strong odours – cats notoriously do not like certain scents and adding scents such as lavender, peppermint, or cinnamon this can act as a natural deterrent.
2. Sprinklers – cats also do not typically like water. You can purchase motion detector sprinkler systems to prevent cats from coming into your garden.
