How do I make my yard less rabbit friendly?

I spotted a rabbit in my front yard this morning and, after chasing her away, noticed that she had started preparing a hole, presumably to raise little rabbits. This is a few months after I closed up a rabbit hole after nearly taking out a baby bunny with my trimmer. I can't stand for this.
I have a small patch of land, and one side of my yard is still hurting from the previous owner's dog. I can't have a rabbit digging up the good side. It's not that I hate the rabbits, or that I don't want them to have a place to live.
More than the lawn care issue, I'm terrified of running over them with the lawn mower. It's making me ill just thinking about ending a rabbit.
Aside from physically checking the hole, how can I be sure that:
a) they're gone when I go to mow my lawn tonight?
b) they don't return?
