Author: CFA (Country Fire Authority)
Date: 2011
Abstract: This publication provides information on landscaping to minimise the effects of direct flame contact and radiant heat on a house during a bushfire. Sections 2-5 are a guide to the planning and design process. There are four example gardens with landscape plans, design notes and suitable plant options. These gardens illustrate the design principles of landscaping for bushfire for gardens in coastal, hilly, rural and suburban environments. Section 6 draws attention to the importance of garden maintenance. Section 7 includes a Plant Selection Key. This tool can be used to help choose suitable plants with low flammability. The key is also available as an online tool at Section 8 provides information on further resources and references.
