A Little Off-Topic: Natural Spider Repellent

A Little Off-Topic: Natural Spider Repellent

I was out trying to fertilize and I ran face-to-face into a spider about the size of my hand. While I can live with little spiders, ones that size freak me out and I can only imagine what it would be like to be bit by one. Do any of you know of a natural spider repellent that will atleast keep them away from the area up against my house? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
