How to prune a Lawson's Cypress

Fieldfest, If you click on "seen here" the photo will came up.

AJ2, I agree with fieldfest's advice. You can trim it over lightly and it will regrow but if you cut into the old wood(that with brown leaves or further in) the tree will not regrow - remaining brown and unattractive. You can  lower its height and the tree will regrow at the top from the surrounding branches (green wood).

Keeping Cats off My Veg Patch

Buy a water scarecrow moveable, 24/7 takes care of deer, herons, foxes and cats but can be adjusted to be bird friendly. Not  cheap but it works and saves money in the long run...and along with your blood pressure! Don't go for any 'copies' as they are not worth the money by all accounts - Amazon had an offer on them before Xmas. I've had mine for nearly 6 years and it is still going strong, it has protected my patio, bulbs, seedlings, veg patch and pond at different times with 100% success.
