Can you suggest some plants that rabbits won´t eat? They chew on everything I plant in my yard.
You´re wise to start with plants that rabbits prefer not to eat. (If they´re hungry enough, they ´ll eat almost anything).Although you can use fencing to exclude rabbits from your garden, and you can spray plants with rabbit repellent to discourage them from munching your landscape, you can also take the easy way out and grow trees, shrubs, and flowers that they normally avoid. See a list of rabbit-resistant plants that the Royal Horticultural Society publishes.
What are hardy annuals? I thought annuals were killed by frost.
Most annual flowers won’t survive over the winter in cold climates, but many tolerate some frost.
Some annuals, such as pansies, violas, and flowering kale, survive heavy freezes. Some hardy annuals to try include alyssum, lobelia, phlox, cornflower, dianthus, nasturtium, poppy, pot marigold, snapdragon, stock, and sweet pea. These plants perform best in cool weather and will bloom best in spring and fall. In midsummer, when temperatures are high, most of them will stop flowering. With the return of cooler temperatures in fall, they will begin to boom again.

"Rock Bottom is a very professional operation. They respond promptly to all contacts from the initial quote to the final cleanup. Assistance was provided in selecting the appropriate color, type and size of blocks for our patio. The foreman worked with us on site in shaping the curves in our patio to create the most pleasing effect. "
