Get off my garden is an easy to use outdoor cat and dog repellent… Do not use indoors! One buyer of the product used it indoors and made the room unusable even for humans!
It is a bright green gel that you squirt around areas that you wish to discourage cats and dogs from.
This cat repeller is safe for use on young pets / pests as well as old ones.
It is effective in all weather conditions, however after heavy rainfall you do need to reapply.
What does it do?
Get off my Garden is a smelly green gel that is used for the following 2 main purposes.
Its main use is to discourage cats and dogs from using your garden and lawns as a toilet.
Because it makes cats and dogs uncomfortable to poo or pee around this product it can and is used as toilet training for your pets…Discouraging them from using the wrong areas as a toilet and getting them to use litter trays or easy to clean areas.
How does it do it?
It smells bad! It has a very strong lemon smell which makes cats and dogs uncomfortable so they go find somewhere else to use as a toilet.
Why should you use it?
To rid your garden and lawn from cats and dogs who use it as a toilet.
This is a safe non-irritant gel containing methyl nonyl ketone, which It is found naturally in bananas, cloves, ginger, Strawberries and guava.
As a bonus it also repels foxes!
Is it any good?
Get off my garden has mixed results, it has been a total success for many buyers but for others a total waste of money.
Compared to other cat and dog repellers on the market, this does appear to have a lower than average success rate than many others out there.
A draw back is that you do have to reapply at regular intervals but this is not a permanent task… you only have to stop cats and dogs until their habit is broken and they have moved on.
The product I recommend is Rosewood Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Crystals, which has a much higher success rate. Looking at the reviews for this product I think it may works better because of detailed instructions for use or maybe it’s just a better product!

Many years ago I myself had great success in repelling cats from my garden with a gel that was impregnated with concentrated lion Pee, I wanted to highly recommend this product but unfortunately the gel is no longer for sale (probably because it looked like a giant green slug had left a trail all through the garden).
My research shows that you can still buy a repellent with lion urine but it is now in pellet form.
These do work but there have been mixed results from users. However I suspect the best results would come from a generous application of these products and not just a small economic sprinkling (we want to stop cats not save money!).
Do you suffer from plants being dug up? Cat poo in your vegetable patch? Lack of wildlife in your garden? Cats winding your pets up? These and many other cat related problems are the bane of many a garden owner and the search is on to find the best way how to keep cats out of garden.
Here at StopUpest I have found many ways of how to keep cats out of your garden but there is no one best way to deter cats, it all depends on your circumstances also annoyingly for some strange reason what works for one cat may not for another.
I have found that cat deterrents fall into one of the following groups:
I personally have tried 3 of the cat deterrents and they worked!
Keep Cats Out Of Your Garden With Smell.
Cat deterrent sprays, powders an pellets are great for repelling cats from specific areas of your garden and can even be used if you have pets of your own.
The first cat repellent I ever used was based on smell. I found a great product that was impregnated with pee from lions and other big cats from the zoo. This works a treat, however it does need to be frequently re-applied as the smell must get old or just washed away, either with rain or the watering of your plants.
The down side to this technique is that to keep cats out of your garden you can’t just apply it around the borders of your garden, it also has to be applied around the problem areas and plants, so you do yet through a lot of this stuff.
I also wouldn’t recommend using this around a vegetable patch as your veg may absorb some of the taste.
In conclusion as long as you remember to re-apply regularly this works great.
Keep Cats Out Of Your Garden With Ultra Sonic Scarer
Another time I had a pebbled back yard that the cats loved to use as their toilet, and it was near impossible to separate the poo from the pebbles. Lion pee was not going to work this time!
It was time to get electrical. An ultrasonic cat repeller was purchased. I stuck it in the pebbles next to a wall so it would target the whole yard and job done! No more poo. I can’t recommend these enough.
This is a great technique but if you have pets of your own this also annoys them!
However fast forward in time, new home new problems. This time I have my own cat so lion spray and the ultrasonic cat repeller would not work, time to get drastic… I got a dog.
OK not perfect because the cats come around when the dog is inside, but when the dog is out it both scares the neighbors cats away and also protects my cat! A win win.
So that leaves visual and water.
Keep Cats Out Of Your Garden With Visual Scarers.
These are a natural cat deterrent that doesn’t actually scare cats but just makes them feel uncomfortable. They are suitable for use if you have your own pets.
Visual cat scarers are usually homemade and consist of CD mobiles (or any mobile that reflects light) or half fill plastic bottles of water. These supposedly work by reflected shifting light that makes the cats wary and uncomfortable. You may as well try this, as it is a cheap no frills method, unless you object to the look of them in your garden.
Keep Cats Out Of Your Garden With Water Sprayers.
And that leaves water sprays. Automatic cat water deterrent sprays are a very successful way to deter cats from your garden, however they are not suitable if you have your pets of your own as they will be targeted also!
While I am a cat lover I think I would get a perverse sense of satisfaction knowing that trespassing cats are going to get a good soaking. This doesn’t mean you have to stay on guard in your garden with a water hose or water pistol, but instead there are motion sensor remote controlled water sprayers.
Now I’ve not seen any myself in real life or know anyone who has one but if they work as well as we hope I’m sure the cats will stay well clear… plus the garden gets a free watering.
Doing research I came across this great over the top video of a homemade cat sprayer. (Do not watch if you are a cat lover and easily offended)
And learnt the following lessons:
Yes I would get pleasure from spraying cats before they spray / mark my property.
No I can’t make my own
It does work! At the end of the video he said it didn’t work however on a follow up video he did say it worked for a few months and that was after spraying the cats only once!
In conclusion you can keep cats out of your garden, it’s just a matter of finding the best cat deterrent that suits you.
