i do not own a cat but they are urinating in my garden and the smell is terrible how can i get rid of the smell and how can i prevent them from spraying or urinating in my garden.

Getting rid of the smell may be very difficult, and you may have to re-plant everything with new soil.

Cats don’t like the smell of citrus fruit, so it is an excellent deterrent for gardens and plants. Citrus scented potpourri or cleaners can be another means of keeping cats out of your outdoor garden or indoor plants. Just apply the citrus scented solution to something in the garden; such as a large rock, or around the foundation of your house for flower beds or the pots for indoor plants. Be aware that you will need to re-apply this occasionally since the scent will wash off with water.
Bury citrus rinds in the soil of your house plants to keep cats from digging. Orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime rinds are all unpopular with felines. You can do this for your outdoor garden as well to prevent the neighborhood cats from treating your garden as the litter box. Be aware that the rinds will break down into the soil (composting) so you will need to replace them from time to time.
