How can I discourage rabbits from eating my lawn. The dogs are useless. The rabbits learned how to climb over the 3' high chicken wire. They run through the hotwire too fast to be shocked. I am growing a dirt lawn. Please help me.

Some gardeners report success using the repellent sprays labeled specifically for rabbits. Be sure to read the label and apply and reapply as directed. Another possibility would be to treat the plants with a pepper/wax spray, again be sure to follow the label directions. Here is some additional information about rabbits you may find interesting.
