The Ultimate Defense

FIRE-SAFE LANDSCAPING

Fire-safe landscaping isn’t necessarily the same thing as a well-maintained yard. Fire-safe landscaping uses fire-resistant plants that are strategically planted to resist the spread of fire to your home.

 

The good news is that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make your landscape fire-safe. And fire-safe landscaping can increase your property value and conserve water while beautifying your home. Over time this investment can actually save you money that you would normally spend annually on weed abatement services.
