how about a high fence? sure they might be able to jump in, but if it was high enough, then they might not do it since it'd be a pain to them..

A famous UK gardener recommends putting twigs in the ground (he has a cat), seemingly very good on newly dug secions, as it stops them using it as the cat toilet. Or scattering orange and lemon peel - they don't like citrus smells.

Someone suggested this to me once: cut up an old garden hose and place it all around the flower bed. Cats are afraid of snakes and they tend to view these "hoses" as such. Unless you want to invest in some rubber snakes.

I've also been told to sprinkle pepper all over the ground. It does no damage to the flower beds or kitties. But it will keep them away because they don't like the smell.

Another idea was moth balls.
