Default Keeping Cats Out Of Mulch

So i just had to spend an obscene amount of money to fix my back yard to meet new playground regulations... as they are pouring the mulch I am watching all the stray neighborhood cats eyeing it up.

How can I keep the cats from using the mulch for a litter box?

Prior to fixing the yard these cats were already using my back yard for some reason. (probably cause it looked like a crap hole )

My neighbor's cat thinks my 14 ft x 14 ft sandbox is a giant litterbox for him so we purchased this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002A91E6I/...SIN=B002A91E6I

We bought it from Menard's and you can get it ready to spray or in concentrate so you can mix it yourself. It is safe to use around kids, vegetation and plants as it is made with organic ingredients. It also seems to stay put (even after rainshowers etc) and we have only had to reapply after about 30 days or so.

Thanks for this thread.

We just had mulch put down yesterday and we were very reluctant to get it. We bought that rubber gravel stuff last summer and before we could get the second load down it was full of cat crap.
