If you can stand one more bit of advice on keeping cats out of the garden - I use two techniquest. Any kind of scent that has mint or citrus in it is something they're going to HATE. you can either regularly spray down the area with a mister containing watered-down essential oils, or even hang strongly-scented air fresheners around. The other - and this can be easy or difficult depending on what kind of garden this is - is to mulch the plants with small rocks. this is something that of course works better in an ornamental garden with large shrubs than in a vegetable garden, of course, but cats absolutely won't go where they can't dig, by my experience. Being an urban gardener and cat owner myself, i've salvaged a couple of relationships with neighbors by getting them rocks for mulching their flowerbeds.
