Zoom Meeting ID: 940 1369 3940

Learn how to create and maintain a fire-wise, sustainable garden that supports biodiversity while meeting County code requirements. We can help you with plant selection, placement and maintenance, to preserve and even add to wildlife habitat, while keeping your property and neighborhood fire-wise and sustainable.

In this two-hour workshop with plenty of time for questions we will offer:

Recommendations for fire-wise landscaping in the 0-5', 5-30' and 30-100' defensible space zones, with specific plant and design suggestions

Practical ways to reconcile sometimes conflicting guidelines, so you can have a biodiverse, energy-saving, water- and fire-wise landscape

A practical understanding of what it means to be sustainable in an ever-changing California climate
