Part - I understand. Fortunately snakes aren't a problem here. We only have three, and one, the Smooth snake is harmless and extremely rare. The more common ones are the harmless Grass Snake ( which I have seen in that garden and in my own) and the adder or viper which, although it has a venomous bite prefers to keep away from humans - it is most often seen in dry areas on sunny days when it likes to sunbathe in the open. Occasionally you hear of a dog being bitten, often because they've been curious and gone and sniffed at them , but people are rarely harmed.
