A Rabbit Is Invading My Garden

Fence Garden

Q: I have seen a rabbit inside my fenced garden. There is a hole four inches wide under the fence. What can I do to keep him out?

A: Rabbits don’t have paws adapted to dig holes in the ground but they can push and tug soft earth and weed stems to make a garden entrance under a fence. One way to prevent the bottom edge of the fence from being pushed up is to secure it to the ground with V-shaped pins made from clothes hangers. Rabbits don’t usually jump high, so as long as the fence is at least twenty-four inches tall they can’t get inside but you can easily step over it.
