How to Ban Bunnies from Your Blooms Alpharetta, GA
Blooming Flowers

Bunnies are often regarded as soft, cute and innocent animals that emerge in spring. However, if you’ve ever woken up to garden or flower bed that has been ravaged by this furry creature, you may not consider them so fondly. If rabbits are plundering your new spring blooms, you have every right to be frustrated, as these herbivore animals can eat your plants and flowers down to the nubs in one meal. You should know, however, that there are some things you can do to prevent or deter rabbits from eating your landscape.

Plant the Right Species
Educate yourself on what rabbits like and don’t like. For example, bunnies often go for tulips, pansies and hostas, but they are not as fond of flower varieties like daffodils, hyacinths and peonies.

Apply a Repellent
Rabbits are excellent sniffers, and you can use this to your advantage. There are repellent sprays that rabbits do not like. These can be purchased and are also found as a natural or organic solution if you prefer.

Fence in Your Garden
While this may not be the most aesthetically-pleasing method to keeping rabbits away, many homeowners resort to small fence to protect their gardening investment. Chicken wire with mesh is a great choice, but don’t forget to make it high enough so that bunnies can’t hop over.

How to Tell If Rabbits are the Culprit

You are unlikely to actually witness a rabbit munching away on your flowers. Instead, you’ll have to do the detective work. Unlike pests and insects that can destroy your plants, bunnies tend to eat stems all the way to the ground, leaving clean-cut nubs. Rabbits also like to go straight for the young shoots of flowers because they’re closer to the ground. Finally, a telltale sign that a rabbit has made a meal from your flower garden is the evidence of small round fecal pellets left behind.

Are you frustrated at the battle between your spring blossoms and intruding bunnies? Call Everlast Lawns & Landscapes, LLC. We understand the many ways you can protect your landscape from pests and animals.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
