Are Rabbits Eating Your Spring Flowers? Cumming, GA

It is all too common to hear frustrated homeowners who have spent a notable amount of time, energy and money into planting spring flowers – only to find them half-eaten by sneaky rabbits just a few days later. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we are happy to help you avoid this devastating landscaping event. There are ways to protect your spring flowers and discourage hungry rabbits from ruining your landscaping efforts.

If you’ve been unwillingly providing flower snacks for nearby rabbits, here are some effective strategies to consider:

  • Fence Your Flowers – Often, the best defense is a chicken-wire fence that measures 2-3 feet in height. You’ll want to bury the fence into the soil so that rabbits can’t sneak underneath.
  • Spray Your Flowers– There are a number of repellents that you can apply on your flowers to deter hungry rabbits, including blood meal, fox urine, hot pepper spray and more. The downside is that you’ll need to reapply frequently for optimal effectiveness.
  • Cover Early Flowers– Since rabbits prefer the tender growth of freshly planted flowers, it can helpful to place a row cover over your spring flower bed for the first few weeks. Once you remove it, you can try a repellant spray so that the rabbits continue to stay away from your landscape.
  • Plant Flowers That Rabbits Don’t Like– There are some flower varieties that rabbits just don’t like to eat. Save yourself the worry and hassle and consider planting the following “rabbit-proof” flowers:
    • Sweet Alyssum
    • Ageratum
    • Lantana
    • Cleome
    • Pot Marigold
    • Geraniums
    • Wax Begonia
    • Strawflower

Whether it is rabbits, deer, bugs or weeds, most homeowners have to battle some type of threat to their landscape. However, by hiring the experts at Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we can help you achieve a vibrant and healthy landscape despite these dangers. If you are afraid rabbits will sabotage your spring flowers, let us help!

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
