Another thing that cats hate is to walk on extremely weird or
uncomfortable (to the bottom of the feet) surfaces. A barrier of chicken
wire, laid flat on the ground around the garden, will often deter them.
The barrier has to be wide enough, however, to prevent the cats from
easily jumping over it. (This same technique works well with deer, too.
Unfortunately, deer can jump a lot further than cats, so the barrier has
to be a LOT wider.) If the chicken wire is laid over the surface of the
garden, during winter for example, the cats won't do their business there
because they won't be able to "bury" it properly through the mesh. That
might be a good solution for getting the garden off of the regular
scent-marking routes of neighborhood felines.

Good luck!
