Fire -smart Landscaping Tips from UC Marin Master Gardener

Fire Smart Landscaping

  • Clear leaf and needle litter from gutters, roof, eaves, and around vents, chimney, and the foundation (in “Zone Zero”)
  • Clear branches 10 feet from the chimney and from the roof.
  • Rake-up excess fallen leaves and evergreen needles.
  • Remove dead vegetation, dead wood from trees and shrubs, and cut dry grasses to less than 4 inches long
  • While looking around, check plants for drought stress – healthy plants are more resilient.

These steps are good preparation for the rainy season as well as peak fire season.
