Step 1: Dig a trench Dig a trench around your garden that is at least 3 inches deep to prevent those pesky critters from burrowing under the fence. Tip Use ground staples to hold the fence down and prevent the rabbits from crawling under if you cannot dig a trench. Step 2: Hammer in posts Hammer one metal post in each corner and then evenly space the remaining posts every 6 to 8 feet around the perimeter. Step 3: Trim sections Trim the fencing into sections with wire snips instead of trying to cover the whole garden in one pass. Tip Use vinyl coated fencing, since it won't rust. Make sure the mesh is tight enough to keep the rabbits out. Step 4: Attach fencing Wrap the fencing outside each post and attach it with cable ties. Step 5: Backfill trench Backfill the trench and test the fence's sturdiness. Examine the perimeter for weak spots and be confident that you'll be the only one eating from your garden. Did You Know? The Australian government was forced to build a 2?-mile long fence in Perth to protect the parks and reserves from rabbits.
