How To Get Your Yard To Bounce Back After A Wildfire

Margie Craig

Wildfires are typically nature's way of eliminating a lot of dry brush and dead plants that are otherwise in the way of new growing things. Unfortunately, many humans end up building in the direct paths of many wildfires. If your yard and home were exposed to wildfire recently, you can always rebuild your home, but what do you do for the scorched earth that was your yard? Here are some tips on how to get your yard to bounce back after a wildfire, and avoid a hostile takeover by weeds in the process.

Till and Water the Scorched Earth

Once your local firefighters say it is safe to return to your property and deal with the damage, you can till and water the scorched earth. By watering it, you are restoring the moisture balance to the soil that was taken during the fire. By tilling it, you are pushing the burnt grasses into the soil to act as fertilizer. Make a couple of passes through with both water and the tiller until you get nice, soft soil.

Plant Grass and Weed Control Mix-in-One

There are many grass seed mixtures you can buy, but when you are trying to prevent faster-growing weeds from taking over your yard after a fire, you will want the bag of seed that comes complete with weed control as well. Look for the bags that are marked as "fast growing grass seed mix, plus weed control and weed preventer". These are the bags that will definitely help your scorched yard to bounce back quickly to a green and growing place. Ask a landscaper or weed control specialist about which types of grass seed and weed control mixtures work best in your area and which ones will work best after a wildfire.

Consider Sod for Immediate Restoration

If you would rather not wait for your grass seed to grow in, you can also consider sod. Sod is typically treated for weeds and can help prevent them when the sod is used in place of grass seed and weed control mixtures. The tilled and watered earth underneath will help provide the sod with enough fertilizer and moisture to help the sod take root quickly. You will still have to stay off the sodded areas of your lawn for a few days to a couple of weeks while the sod takes root, but your yard will go from scorched black to immediately green in under a day if you choose to use sod.

Hi, I'm Victor Grayson. The bedroom is my sanctuary. After working at a labor intensive job all day, I look forward to falling into bed and relaxing. As a result, I really took the time to prepare my bedroom for the ultimate in relaxation. I paid close attention to the different types of furniture, bedding and decorations that would work well in that space. I used a variety of techniques to make sure my bedroom made it easy to rest without distractions. That means that my room is free of electronics and light emitting devices, beyond the single lamp on the bedside table. However, there are many different ways to set up the bedroom space. I will use this site to discuss the different types of bedroom layouts you can create. I will also talk about the wide range of furniture items you can choose for your sleeping space.
