FIRE-SMART LANDSCAPING - APRIL'S TIP OF THE MONTH

fire_safety_tip_01-2

By using sustainable and earth friendly garden practices, your garden can be a place for pollinators and insects to travel through, making it a wildlife corridor.  Here’s a few helpful tips to create a fire-smart sanctuary:

 

• The UC Marin Master Gardeners have plant lists to help homeowners select attractive, easy care, water wise, and pollinator friendly plants. California natives are a good choice that include important host and nectar plants.

 

• Remove invasive plants. Unfortunately excessive clearing or “scorched earth” gardening provides a vulnerable entry point for the plants we do not want. 

 

• When problems arrive use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for the least toxic and most natural methods of pest management.  Avoid pesticides that can harm birds and other wildlife.

• Nurture the soil to protect the life in it. Add compost and organic materials rather than synthetic fertilizers.

Make your garden sustainable, healthy and fire-smart, visit UC Marin Master Gardener to learn more.
