    For rabbits,you may end up having to fence in the area with a pretty fence or you can simply use chicken wire. ( make a makeshift top, if the squirrels are getting in, as well. ). We have a chicken wire around ours because our backyard is a rabbits haven for some reason and we have a dog too.

    I put up a plastic Netting bought at a big box store, the animals are kept out and the vegetables are kept in. I used tomato states to staple the netting to, don't for get to use 2 posts that meet to make a doorway.

    Sprinkle red pepper flakes around your plants.

    Netting will keep the rabbits away, not sure it works well with squirrels
