A good way to repel mosquitoes naturally around your outdoor living spaces is by planting some garlic plants.

The mosquitoes don't like to be around the garlic and will leave the area alone.

Lemon Eucalyptus oil is also a good natural mosquito repellent.

Other plants you can plant besides the garlic plants to repel mosquitoes are, Lavender, Marigolds, Catnip, Rosemary, Scented Geraniums and even basil plants.
The above plants and especially the Marigolds put out a scent that the mosquitoes hate.

Marigolds are a flower that is very easy to grow and throws out a scent that repels mosquitoes.
