Most homeowners are prepared for unexpected emergencies. You may keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen or routinely change the batteries in your smoke detectors. You might even have a fire evacuation emergency supply kit stashed in the hallway closet.

But have you ever considered the safety benefits of brush clearing?

Clearing brush from your lawn, such as dried leaves and dead palm fronds, allows you to maintain defensible space. This space—typically about 100+ feet in diameter around your home—acts as a buffer between your house and the trees, shrubs, and any other wildland area surrounding it. This also creates a safe space for firefighters to put out the flames. 

Defensible space helps to slow down or stop the spread of wildfires. It can also protect your home and neighborhood.

Still not convinced? Here are the top four benefits of maintaining defensible space.
