As cats have a high-protein diet, it is a great fertilizer, and the woodchips are really good at improving the ground. I have used it successfully in lightening the hard clay in London (which in summer can turn into something resemblin concrete), and improvving the water retention capacity of my sandy soil in Frankfurt. As for the plants: They love it and grow like mad.
As the litter is treated to reduce the smell, you will not notice anything, but it also keeps other cats away.
