Raised bed

Raised bed

Raised veg bed with anti-cat string. It was stapled in place and our 3 cats didn't even go near.

Great pic.

Hope the wily cats don't learn to hurdle, that might make the next olympics, cat hurdling.
Or cat hurling, but I'm not into that. My cat gets enough grief from the local squirrel.

I'm changing my plot around a little bit at the moment, and will be employing your techniques.
Thank you.

I am currently upgrading my garden, installing a green house and raising the beds for ease of use. Hadn't even thought of the cats! Will deffinately try the string trick.
For slugs I am going to secure copper wire around the top of the wooden boards (apparently they won't cross it). Then treat the soil within the beds.
