Decided to try this. Turned out to be kinda fun. I enjoy sitting up on my balcony and watching creeps die.

Haha, I've put one of these around my house on survival island once ^_^

He is using "Photo Realism (RPG)" I think.

I'm surprised that mobs don't avoid cactus :P Oh well, just treat it like any other block ^_^

I have something similar around my sand collection shack out in a desert.

Except for I put in a pit with the cactus in it so they can fall in there and I can go underground and collect the drops.

Doesn't that destroy the drops? :o

No, they go into the pit trying to get to me and then hit the cactus. I then come at it from below ground and have holes in the sides of the pit for me to get close enough to get the drops.

I haven't tested it out in a while to see if it still works and it's hard telling what endermen will do to it, but it is nice to have a way to easily get to the drops.

It was really just a temporary defense from when I looked outside one night after spending a day collecting sand and saw a ton of mobs wandering around outside the shack I put up to wait out the night.

The only mob grinder I ever made was with cactuses.  I set them up in a spider dungeon with a water-pushing system and had an endless supply of string.  The cactus do destroy items, but with how fast monsters spawn, it doesn't really matter.
