Wow, We also did that!
I basically still do the same thing today, but now it is tossing the
dog crap over the fence before cutting the grass.
Why don't you just teach the kids to fling it out on their own?
Dealing with crap is no big deal & is something all of us have to
learn to deal with eventually........
A very effective method is one of those motion detector sprinklers. Turn it
on and it will spray anything that moves in front of it. Turn it off when
the kids are playing. It can also be moved to keep animals out of the
garden, or wild geese out of the pond. It doesn't use that much water
I second the scarecrow motion activated sprinkler.
But also since your fence is so high - then how about fruit tree netting,
which almost invisible and cats hate it. string it from post to post and
the kids for sure can play under it easily - taller adults may have to
remember to not walk straight up. ;-(
I, personally, prefer the Fi-Shock. It is very entertaining when the cats
hit it, and then when they hit it again going back over the wall how many
times it takes them to go back over the wall. Of course, a little help with
a garden hose helps to get them started on that one last leap out of your
Forever. They will never come back into your yard.
BTW, I like cats and own one. But not when they belong to others, and they
can't control them.
That's the usual bullshit from cat-haters. The cat tearing up trees and
creating all kinds of havoc.... animals that weigh maybe 10 pounds on
average, destroying neighborhoods, if you believe them. Our cats like to nip
the ends of grass blades, which they do very daintily. If they ate more than
a few grams in a season I'd be surprised.
