How to keep rabbits & other small animals out of my vegetable garden?

I want to have a small herb and vegetable garden but live in a wooded area with plenty of wild life. What can I build as a fence that won't detract from a beautiful oasis?

    I bought 5’ black mesh 150’ fencing. Put in metal fence posts then sprayed black....used zip ties to hold mesh to posts. All reusable and the mesh makes it see thru and pretty. I have deer that come up to house to eat but never touched my fencing

    Hi Julia. I'm Cindy. I live next to woods and a river. We see a lot of wildlife too. The only thing that has worked for me is shredded Irish Spring bar soap. You can shred the bars of soap on a box grater or in a food processor. Spread the shreds around your plants. Animals hate the smell and taste and will leave your vegetables alone. Best of luck to you.
