Garden snake facts - 4 fantastic tips

by Monique

Garden snake facts to help keep them from your garden.

Snakes are so small and crafty that it can seem impossible to keep your family safe in the garden.

We once found a snake at our house coiled up around the flag-pole holder near the door knob! There have been countless times we've found snakes while doing yard maintenance.

1. By far, the best thing we've ever done is keeping the yard clear.

2. Don't let your grass get too high and don’t plant anything you have difficulty seeing into (i.e. bushes, ivy.)

3. Also, don’t allow rubbish to pile up around the outside of your house.

4. Empty buckets/containers are just too inviting for snakes to make home.

A clear, organized yard is a safe yard where snakes are easy to spot before it’s too late.

Keeping snakes away
by: Anonymous

Keeping snakes away is the best solution. I have to agree about not planting anything you can't see into.

We have had experience with a snake resting in the shade under the leaves of an agapantha plant.

Our dog walked right past the snake and fortunately wasn't bitten. We removed all of the agapanthas the next day and have since learned many people have had the same experience.

The very best solution is just keeping snakes away which is safer for the snakes, people and your pets.
