In our SoCal gardens rabbits are a huge problem.  We also have rats,
possums, gophers, raccoons and the occasional coyote that can cause problems
(the coyotes don't eat the produce, but they sometimes knock down fences and

Like you, individual gardeners tend to fortify their fences in various ways.
I've found that plastic-coated chicken wire works best againsts rabbits.

Here in Duluth, Minnesota, deer and rabbits are huge problems in community
gardens.  A number of gardeners have fenced in their plots in various ways.
Fencing has been done on an individual basis rather than on a garden basis,
mainly because of cost and differing levels of concern about the "problem".
We'd love to know how other gardens have addressed animal issues, especially
if any have found non-fence solutions or deterrents to animals.
