Create a Five-Foot Zone of Fire-Safe Landscape

Local firefighters warn that wildfire risks are on the rise. So take control of your vulnerabilities. How you maintain and landscape the five feet around your home or business can make a big difference.

  • Keep the corners of the building clear of combustible materials.
  • Use noncombustible mulch, such as rock.
  • Keep the lawn properly irrigated and use low-growing, non-woody plants. Shrubs and trees are not recommended in the five-foot zone.
  • Remove dead vegetation and avoid the accumulation of fallen leaves, needles, and other flammable materials.
