I have a problem with those adorable little destroyers.... rabbits

I don't like the look of chain link fences and all the wooden or plastic fence materials I've seen are too tall for my small front yard. Since I'm not wanting a Privacy type fence, I'd like something about 3' tall and am thinking about using cinder blocks. (I have done a small masonry job before.) My house is adobe style so I would mortar and paint them to look like an adobe wall. I'm concerned about the cost of all those blocks since my disabled husband died and my income dropped by half. But I'll have to do whatever is necessary to save my flowers. Is there some other type fence that is solid enough to keep the bunnies out or would the cinder blocks be best?

    Painted Chicken wire on Stake frames seems among smaller alternatives to chain link fences. But, as this is for Game problems, usually among better methods is not putting in fences atall but instead of asking your neighbors to plant: Carrots, you need train these rabbits, squirrels, rodents, etc, to find a different path without a Scent these despise.

    Spray at your open borders a humane mix: 8 tablespoons Red Pepper with 2 teaspoons Mace, with 1/2 cup of Water, once boiled in an old coffee can on your firepit, can then place in an old windex sprayer, to line your borders with a Scent the Rabbits cannot handle.

      This peppew spway also works on other felons and cwooks, besides the cwazy wabbits. Do boil it outside.

    Bunnies can easily get through chain link fencing and can hop right on up and over a small garden wall. I've found chicken wire fencing to be inexpensive and unobtrusive, and as long as you put about 6 inches below ground ( the buggers dig) it keeps them out of my gardens.
