I wish there were an easy solution but once raccoons find your garden, they'll remember it as a food source and will continue to visit. Fencing is the only sure-fire way of keeping them out. You may be able to trap and relocate them, though. Check with the University of Illinoise Cooperative Extension office for their recommendations. Good luck with your garden!
