Default Snakes And How To passively Repel

I have a stretch of woods behind my house. We frequently get snakes sunning on my back porch. My wife is disgusted by snakes and I was hoping someone had a suggestion of how I can "passively" repel them from coming into my yard. I grow tired of constantly having to go out and physically catch and remove them. They produce copious babies year in and year out. The snakes are mostly Garter Snakes with the occasional Ribbon Snake. All my thanks.

Providing a suitable basking site nearby in the woods could draw them there instead of your porch. Take away nesting/ hide spots under your porch and get rid of any water sources near your home pond, water bowls, etc. Garters are a basking species and need UV light a rock pile in a sunny clearing could work
