Rabbits are notoriously good at knowing just what your favourite vegetables are, then systematically relieving your garden of those plants. Fences that are used to keep rabbits out of your prized plants are inexpensive and easy to construct, ensuring that you, and not invading bunnies, get to enjoy the bounty of your garden.

  1. 1

    Sink the stakes into the ground surrounding your garden with the hammer. There should be at least three feet of stake above ground. Large gardens should have a stake at least every four feet, as well as at all four corners.

  2. 2

    Unroll a few inches of the chicken wire fence, and then staple the end to one of the stakes at the top, middle and bottom, making certain that the chicken wire is snugly against the ground. Wear heavy gloves to prevent cuts from the fence wire.

  3. 3

    Unroll the chicken wire fence all the way around the garden, stapling to the stakes as you go. Use the wire cutters to cut the end of the fence.
