Defensible Space Presentation with California Native Plants Society @ Zoom

California’s natural landscapes are some of the most beautiful and diverse in the country, but can be challenging to replicate in our residential gardens. Resilient landscapes consider water savings, biodiversity, fire-wise principles, and beauty. As our climate changes, so must our gardens.

Learn how to create a more fire-wise landscape using the natives we (and our local wildlife) know and love. This talk will focus on Sonoma County plant communities as a basis for design. Also, we will present recommendations for fire-wise landscaping in the 0-5’, 5-30’, and 30-100’ defensible space zones, with specific plant and design suggestions discussed.

Presenters: Members of the Resilient Landscapes Coalition

This coalition was formed in 2018 to understand what makes a landscape resilient, especially focusing on fire with the help of fire professionals, to inform residential landscapes in Sonoma County.
