Q.Rabbits have killed red fescue

Zone laguna beach ca 92651 | Anonymous added on July 15, 2020 | Answered

We have tried EVERY method of ridding our yard of rabbits with no success. I did replace all the small mounds of grass that they ate to the soil. But our red fescue which is gorgeous and boarders a large part of our yard is full of droppings and half of it is now brown. it’s disgusting and I can’t stand any more. Should we just mow the grass down to the root and hope the rabbits will go elsewhere for a while, or just take it out. I don’t know if the grass will grow back we have never mowed it before. HELP

It could be that the grass is going dormant due to lack of moisture. Is it getting plenty of water? If it is going dormant, it will rebound in the fall with the advent of cooler temperatures.

Hopefully these articles will help repel the rabbits:
