To keep animals out of the garden

Post  TSHRED on 1/20/2015, 8:06 pm

Has anyone tried the Orbit Yard Enforcer?
It's a motion activated sprinkler that is expandable to utilize more than one sprinkler.

I used a cheaper version of that called the Scarecrow last year.  Mine was going off for everything including the movement of plants in the wind and resulted in a large increase in the water bill.  The people who sell those will tell you that the sensitivity can be adjusted, which it can to an extent, but obviously if you turn it down very much it doesn't turn on when/where you need it.  I have read elsewhere too that animals adapt to them.
