Landscaping To Reduce Fire Risk

Southern California usually gets very little rain during the year. Since it almost never rains here between May and October, that 6 month period has historically been considered fire season. However, in recent years fire season has been extended to year round because of increasingly dry weather. When the Santa Ana winds blow, usually in spring and fall, fire risk intensifies and appropriate landscaping around homes and other structures is even more crucial.
