OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES
Outdoor living spaces have become increasingly
popular among homeowners in recent
years, and that popularity grew even more
over the last year. As social distancing guidelines
issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic encouraged
people to stay home as much as possible, a
desire for accessible, enjoyable outdoor spaces grew.
A 2020 study of Google trends data from the home
decor retailer Living Spaces found that searches for
items such as patio daybeds and small-space outdoor
furniture grew by more than 200 percent between the
early part of 2020 and the middle of the year.
If outdoor living spaces are in demand, so, too, are
ways to make those spaces as comfortable as possible.
There’s much homeowners can do to make the most
of their outdoor spaces, but they might feel helpless
against some unwanted, often relentless guests: insects.
Insects can turn relaxing days on the patio into
wars of attrition with hungry bugs like mosquitoes.
Thankfully, there are ways to fi ght back against insects
while simultaneously adding a little aesthetic
appeal to the backyard. The Farmer’s Almanac notes
that planting these insect-repelling plants around the
patio or backyard can help homeowners successfully
repel unwanted insects, including mosquitoes.
• Lavender: Lavender is a fragrant plant that adds a
pop of purple and has been known to repel mosquitoes,
fl eas, fl ies, and moths.
• Basil: Basil can provide the best of both worlds, as
it’s been found to repel fl ies and moths and also makes
for a tasty addition to pasta sauces and other dishes.
• Thyme: Also a valuable ingredient to keep in the
kitchen, thyme can help keep hungry mosquitoes at
• Mint: The Farmer’s Almanac warns that it’s easy
to overplant mint, so homeowners should only plant
with care and make a concerted effort to prevent overgrowth.
Also great in the kitchen, mint has long been
considered an effective mosquito repellant.
• Alliums: Like lavender, alliums can add a burst of
purple to your patio. And though they aren’t believed
to repel mosquitoes, alliums have been found to be
helpful against cabbage worms, aphids, carrot fl ies,
• Chrysanthemums: If ants are drawing homeowners’
ire, chrysanthemums may do the trick. These
eye-catching fl owers also are believed to repel fl eas
and roaches, among other insects.
• Marigolds: The scent of this awe-inspiring plant is
known to repel mosquitoes and other pests. Marigolds
also attract insects like ladybugs that are known to
consume aphids, which are minute bugs that reproduce
rapidly and feed by sucking sap from plants.
