How do I stop my cats pooing in my flower bed? I have recently had some walled beds made, in which I have planted an acer, fern and some bulbs ..however my cats use it as there toilet and it is now full of cat poo. Is there any deterrents for cats?

I use the soft green smalled hole mesh and drape it about on the soil and pegged down if necessary, cats do not seem to like it as I think they think they may get their claws caught. it might not look pretty but it works for me when I have a place with bare soil. Cats seem to dislike different things!
