A Guide to Firesmart Landscaping

It’s spring! And many of us are looking at seed and plant catalogues, thinking about our gardens and yards, and wondering what to plant and where to plant it.

Landscaping can be a major factor in whether your property is firesmart or not. It’s important to limit the level of flammable vegetation and materials around your home and to increase the moisture content of remaining vegetation.

Our Landscaping Guide uses a zone approach, providing information and suggestions for areas nearby and farther from houses and buildings. Click here to download it.

The Wyoming Extension Service has several publications available for download that have a wealth of information about landscaping and gardening. Go to http://www.wyoextension.org/publications and search for “landscaping.”
