Over the years I have spent over a thousand dollars to replace plants. Do not suggest talking to the neighbor as that has not worked. I have tried the following: upside down mouse traps (to scare, not hurt the cat), plastic forks in the ground, chicken wire over annuals (he pees through the wire), lemon slices, pines cones, motion activated sprinkler (which had gotten me and my husband MANY times), sonic noise maker, pepper flakes, coffee grounds and many types of commercial repellants.
