Master Gardener: Protecting your home from wildfires and tips for winter gardening via Press Enterprise


Here in Southern California, we joke about our four seasons: fire, flood, earthquake, and drought. In the fall, otherwise known as fire season, we have hot, dry weather punctuated by gusty winds reaching up to 70 miles per hour. These are perfect conditions for catastrophic wildfires to establish and spread.

If you live in wildfire country, now is a great time to evaluate your property for fire safety. Clean gutters of all debris, and remove dead, dry leaf litter from your roof. Prune or move plants away from windows and move flammable material away from wooden structures.
