Fire Safe Landscapes

Planting "the right plant in the right place" is important in landscaping, and it can influence plant flammability. When selecting landscape plants, consider the light, water, and soil requirements.

In addition to plant selection, plant spacing and maintenance are important in maintaining defensible space. Plants that are stressed have a higher percentage of dead leaves and branches, which significantly increases flammability. While some plants are more resistant to fire than others, any plant will burn under certain conditions.
