Articles: Fire Safe Landscaping

Fire is powerful, consuming, and terrifying. Literally, a force of nature.

Our thoughts and hearts are with people in and around San Diego County as wildfires threaten and roil. Current drought and gusty conditions have accelerated fire season by several months. Faced with an immediate threat, there's little to do but heed directions from authorities and watch out for family, friends, and neighbors.

But for those of us following this saga via news and social media, this is a wake up call to assess vulnerable landscapes and do what we can to fire-proof our landscape, in turn providing a measure of protection to homes and property.

Again, we've turned to our online archives to offer resources, inspiration, and resources for gardeners in the dry West.
