Rabbit Problems?

The only really successful, long-term solution to a rabbit infestation is to fence and gate off the whole area.

Fences can be made of chicken wire and, unless your local rabbits can jump, need be no more than 1m/3ft high, with 30cm/1ft or so of wire buried horizontally under the ground on the outer side so that rabbits are put off trying to burrow underneath it.

The fences need not be unsightly if they can be disguised in boundary hedges. Obviously, the system only works if you make sure that the rabbits have been excluded from the site first and the gates are closed each time.
