How can i get the cats to stop crapping in my garden?

Any tips, suggestions?
I live Green so i'd appreciate it if you have any non harmful (to either plant or animal) suggestions. Not to mention the kiddos help me in the garden so it really must be safe.

  • Lay some rose bush branches down around the plants. The cats won't want to scratch because it will hurt their paws. Or you could buy one of these...

  • Instead of mulch, use decorative rock.

  • Horse manure is good for a garden. But cat poop is NOT. Besides, i don't really feel like smelling cat crap when i walk past my flower garden near my front door.
