Q.Neighbour’s Hedge And Their Cats
Our neighbours planted a hedge on their side of the fence and it is still gappy. We moved next door to them approx. 2 years ago and he has trimmed back the hedge a couple of times when asked to. Our problem is that he has 4 cats and they have always gained access to and from their house either through the hedge to our garden or along our fence. We feel it would be pointless putting up a fence as the wind blows towards our garden and the hedge will eventually push the fence forward. Are there any prickly shrubs we could plant along the bottom of the hedge that would grow tall enough to stop the cats coming in our garden? We will be purchasing a sonic water sprinkler as well. Any advice would be appreciated!

There are lots of prickly plants that could discourage cats. Shrub roses or barberry come to mind. Barberry comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors.
