Keeping out rabbits and other small critters from gardens may seem virtually impossible; but luckily, there are fences on the market that can block burrowing attempts.
For starters, having a hexagonal fence with PVC is a good choice for rabbit deterrence in gardens. The shape of Steel Hex Fencing, using 1" x 1" fence mesh, makes it difficult for animals to use their teeth to cut through the PVC into the steel core.
