Again More Rabbit Damage!

Rabbit damage to chard. Picture courtesy of another reader.
Q. We live in Sun city Summerlin the rabbits are eating our plants Star jasmine, silver spoon yuccas, and even canary island date palms lower leaves. We have tried Shake-Away Fox and Coyote Urine Granules and scaring them but nothing has worked. Any suggestions or tips would be helpful.

A. These kinds of products are deterrents. Once they are hungry those will not stop them and they will eat even less desirable plants. The only real way to get a handle on them is exclusion (fencing)
which can look horrible. Planting less desirable plants (Arizona fact sheet found on the link below) will help push them to more desirable plants they can find in the neighbors yards.
