Fall Gardening Series:
"Fire-Smarting" an Established Native Plant Garden
Wednesday October 7 at 1pm on Zoom
A large portion of home gardens and landscapes in Marin County are well-established and/or mature. But many may not be designed to deal effectively with wildfire. Homeowners with these gardens should begin to develop a fire-smart landscape design that protects structures while retaining or improving garden health, biodiversity and sustainability. But how can you do this in established gardens and landscapes? Where to begin and how to progress? Marin Master Gardener Bob Mauceli will share the steps he has taken on his own garden, and the future work he is planning, as a work-in-progress example of moving toward ‘Fire-smartness’ of an established garden. He hopes that this might suggest ways Marin homeowners might try to fire-harden their own established home landscapes while retaining healthy and enjoyable gardens.
