Is there a real way to keep snakes away?

    The best things you can do is to cut off their food source and make them feel less comfortable and welcome in your yard,

    Keep grass mowed short so they can't hide. I have never seen one but there is snake proof fencing. Google it.

    Old fashion saying is spread moth balls under the house or around the foundation, but I am not sure that it works. Keeping area clear as possible and having cats will help.

    We have lived in our house over 20 and never saw a snake but a neighbor said he saw one behind our storage building when he was mowing recently. Our property is clean and we'll-mowed. We don't even get mice because my husband has sealed all openings and gaps well. We get timber rattlers and copperheads in our region so I don't want them! One neighbor moved away. She had four dogs in her fenced yard that was between us and a creek. I think the dogs must have been keeping the snake population in check.
