Bushfire landscaping: designing gardens for bushfire-prone areas

Before you do – or redo – any landscaping, please read some of the references below! For general information, we recommend the CFA’s Landscaping for bushfire garden design and plant selection (free download from the Web), the RFS’ Planning for bush fire protection (free download from the Web), Lesley Corbett’s Safer gardens: plant flammability & planning for fire (can be purchased as hardcopy or a $12 ebook) and Essential Bushfire Safety Tips by Joan Webster. For information on the suitability of specific native and exotic species, we have brought together information relevant to many species that grow in our region. See link in this folder to: Detailed information on flammability of plants suitable for our region.
