Marin Master Gardener Tips Plan Your Fire-smart Landscape May 2023

Marin Landscaper

  • Identify the best escape routes to your vehicle and exiting your property. 
  • Assess the health and condition of the plants along each route. Keep vegetation maintained – pruned back and hydrated.  
  • Remove dead plant material and plant debris.
  • Remove vines on wooden gates, near doors or windows.
  • Remove or move jute doormats, wood planters, outdoor furniture, and other combustible materials from your exits. 
  • Replace wood gates, arbors, or trellises along your exits with non-combustible materials.       
  • Have evacuation tags easily accessible, post at highly visible locations when you evacuate.  This alerts fire personnel that you have left the property. (Check with your local fire department for signs.) 
  • Help make your hose locations obvious for fire personnel

Come Visit Us! The UC Marin Master Gardener’s Fire-Smart Landscape team will have a booth at the Ember Stomp event on May 20th at the Marin Civic Center Fairgrounds 11:00am-5:00pm. We’ll be on hand to answer questions about how to improve the fire resilience of your landscape. With proper planning and maintenance, you can create a landscape that helps protect your garden and home when wildfire threatens.
