Repelling dog out of flower boxes
I live in an apartment building with a shared outdoor space that is only used by me currently and I'm growing some plants in wooden beds that are 3 feet tall. Problem is my neighbor's jack russell has been jumping into the boxes and digging out all my newly planted and established plants. It's terrible. This has happened many times before and the owner has recognized and apologized but it's still happening (I honestly don't think the owner cares) I have put out a lot of work and my own money into these beds and it's devastating to see all the work gone in a few minutes. Advice? I'm looking into dog repellents but not sure how good they work unless you can suggest a god one. I'm also considering placing potted cacti around the base of the boxes to deter but does that seem a little too much? I have several small agaves to place too but don't won;t to hurt the dog just make stop it from jumping into the boxes.
