Fox digging up front Lawn?

Any ideas to stop a large fox from searching for grubs in my front lawn, my lawn is the only one in the whole street that gets attacked and this is the first year it has happened.

It started with a couple of holes and progressed the other day to my front lawn looking like a small digger was digging a building foundation out.

Our security camera catches the the rogue fox every morning around 4 am digging
I chopped up garlic and sprinkled it only to find it scattered across the street the next day.

My mint from the garden worked quite well for a couple of nights however i don't have any left.

Anybody experienced this themselves?

Enjoy everyday like it's your last!

    What about garlic crushed in boiling water and used as a spray?
    Chillies too.
    Both infused together should do something.

    I've used cedar oil in enclosed areas to deter cats. 

    Of course you need to know what is in your lawn that it likes and deal with that ready for next year.
    Have you fed the lawn with anything? Bfb for instance?

    Male urine is said to deter foxes.
