Do you have a garden of your own? Is it constantly being overrun by unwanted animals and other assorted pests? If so, you have more options available to you than you may have realized. Instead of relying on super expensive items that are not actually guaranteed to work, why not take the time to consider solutions that are a tad less costly?
For example, bar soap that might be collecting dust under your bathroom sink might be far more effective when it comes to handling these problems than you may have realized. All you need are a dozen bars of Irish Spring, a knife, six wooden stakes, mesh pouches or cheese cloth and a staple gun.
Use the knife to cut up your bars of soap into smaller pieces and once you have divvied up all of the Irish Spring bars into tinier chunks, it is time to spread them equally throughout the aforementioned mesh pouches. The staple gun is then used to secure them to the stakes.
The stakes should be large enough to raise up at least two to three feet from the ground. The stakes should also be arranged in a manner that allows a perimeter to be formed around the garden. However, there are additional tips and pointers that allow for an even greater amount of garden protection.
You can also sprinkle soap shards throughout the soil and it is important to spread out these particles far and wide, as animals have been known to feed in close proximity to undesirable smells. The farther you can spread out the scent, the better off your garden is going to be over the long haul.
