Keeping Cats out of the Garden

With nine cats and a 170 pound dog, neighbor cats aren't a real problem around here, so I have never felt the need to investigate the available repellants. I know that there are products available that claim to keep cats away, but I know nothing of their effectiveness. If you plant catnip along the property line, I am sure the cats will get distracted before they get any farther into your yard. Anyone have any suggestions???
