If your garden is frequented by rabbits, here are some ways to keep them away:

The following content also has some reference value for raised garden beds. 

Build a fence: Build a fence of sufficient height to keep rabbits out of the garden. Fences should be at least 2 feet high.

Use plant repellents: Plant plants that rabbits don't like, such as sage, lavender, rosemary, garlic, Onions, etc. Rabbits smell the plants and leave.

Scent: Scent something that rabbits don't like, such as chili, garlic, ginger, etc. These smells will discourage rabbits from coming near your garden. Rabbit mosquito repellent spray can also be used, according to scientific studies, using anti-rabbit spray can prevent up to 75% more rabbits than other methods When using this type of spray, I recommend using it all year round. Simply spray insect repellent on or around the plants (depending on whether you eat them or not). Do this every 90 days and make sure it doesn't rain for at least 24 hours after use.

Use sound: Play sounds in the garden that rabbits don't like, such as barking, cat meowing, human voices, etc. These sounds can make the rabbit scared and leave.

Cover the flower bed: Covering the flower bed with a layer of twigs, branches, leaves, etc., can make it difficult for rabbits to enter the garden.

Use water sprayers: Install some water sprayers in the garden that will spray automatically when the rabbit enters the garden, spooking the rabbit and leaving. Depending on the size and shape of the garden, it was decided that several water sprayers would be needed to cover the entire area. In general, it is recommended to place sprinklers in the middle or around the garden to cover the whole garden. If the garden has tall plants or uneven terrain, choose a taller sprinkler.

 Use a single plant net

Rabbits generally do not eat plants with nets. They are afraid of being trapped inside, and it is difficult to eat such plants. Using plant nets is easy. Simply place the netting completely over your plant and secure it to the ground.

Keep the yard clean

It is easiest to mow the grass, remove any dead shrubs or haystacks, and reduce highly dense areas. Rabbits like covered areas, which will help them find shelter and food elsewhere. If you want to keep rabbits out of your garden, stop them from making their home in your yard

Capture and release

Sometimes no matter what you do to stop rabbits, it just doesn't work.

If this is the case for you, then I recommend catching rabbits and releasing them.

Since I don't like trapping animals, I use this as a last resort.

What I like about this product is that it's easy to set up (it only takes 1 minute) and it works.

Once set up, all you need to do is put a rabbit's favorite plant in it and you're all set. Once you catch the rabbit, I suggest you release it five miles away from your house. That's because rabbits and other animals are known to travel long distances to get back to their sanctuaries.

The above are some ways to keep rabbits out of the garden, and you can choose the appropriate method according to the actual situation
