How to Keep Cats off Your Lawn

Cats can kill lawn grass or lead to ugly yellow spots on an otherwise perfectly manicured lawn. In addition to filling up the entire area with an unbearable stench, they might attract other cats to your lawn and exasperate the problem. Here are some ways to keep away cats from your lawn:

Use Baking Soda Solution

Cats usually choose a spot and stick to it. Add one cup of baking soda to a gallon of water, mix well, and sprinkle the solution to the chosen area. This will not only rejuvenate the dying grass, but also cover the smell left behind by the cat. Continue this practice until the grass grows again.

Use Tabasco, Garlic and Dish Washing Soap

Mix Tabasco, garlic powder and dish washing soap in a gallon of water and spray the mixture on the extremities of your lawn every few days.

Use Vinegar

Add one cup of full-strength vinegar to a gallon of water and spray it around your lawn. The strong scent of vinegar keeps cats at bay.

Sprinkle Coffee Grounds

Coffee grounds have a strong scent. In addition to keeping cats away from your lawn, they fertilize lawn grass. Just sprinkle the coffee ground all over your lawn and watch the grass grow without any cat problems.
