I saw a couple of rabbits in my backyard. And I suspect they ruined my backyard lawn because I saw their droppings in the dead lawn areas. How do I get rid of these rabbits?

Rabbits are very difficult to deter. A pet dog or cat is usually a good deterrent or you might try some of the commercially available repellent sprays applied as a perimeter barrier. Unfortunately, your best and most reliable defense is a fence. To be honest, I would also suspect that the spots on your lawn might be caused as much by dogs chasing the rabbits' trail and marking their territory as by the bunnies themselves, so a fence might be helpful in more ways than one.
