How do you say "Damn kids, get off my lawn!" in Latin?

I'm envisioning this as a motto around a seal, much like Lux et Veritas, etc. The best I can come up with is evado meus hortus, scelerata ("get out of my garden, miscreants") or evado meus gramen ("get off my grass"), but this sounds stilted, and I probably have the case and tenses wrong. I'm sure the hive-mind, well-versed as it is in antiquities, can do better. Please help me dispatch Caesar's worthless brood!
