Rabbits can be very destructive. There are a number of things you can try such as wrapping wire mesh around the base or over the top of smaller plants, using a repellent (either commercially formulated or home made using garlic as a base), and fencing them out of the yard. Some gardeners report that a pet dog or cat on patrol can also be helpful in repelling them.
