In my garden, rabbits tend to avoid anything with scented leaves, for example Salvias. I use upturned wire hanging baskets, which are very cheap, as covers for plants when they are small. By the time they fill the basket they are usually tough enough to withstand some nibbling. I've also got some wire mesh tunnel cloches (the stiff wire mesh that holds its shape) and I use those for rows of plants.
As for the rabbits themselves, I have four humane traps that I move around the garden as required. I won't say what happens to them after they get caught, but I do enjoy a nice rabbit pie!
