California Wildfire Landscaping

Author(s): Gilmer, M.

Year: 1994

Publisher: Dallas: Taylor Pub.

ISBN: 0878338640

Subject: Landscaping

Comments: From Booklist: An explanation of the history of California's wildfires and how they develop is Gilmer's introduction to this guide to assisting homeowners in preventing a devastating loss. Advice deals with areas pertaining to planning the construction and siting of a home, the managing of native plantings, landscaping with so-called fire-resistant ornamental plants and irrigating systems, designing groupings of various species, and maintaining plants and equipment. Additional counsel covers coping with a wildfire and erosion control. Gilmer lists support agencies for those who have suffered the effects of a fire and provides resources for the purchase of plants. This practical handbook features informative tips throughout and should prove useful for California residents concerned with learning as much as possible about "firescaping." Alice Joyce
