Compare and Contrast with the Boise Firewise Garden

Ever thought about what it looks like to have a #Firewise Landscape around your property? Take a look at the photos below to see the difference 8 years can make when installing a firewise landscape.

The main Firewise Garden next to the Idaho Botanical Gardens was established in 2008 (ground breaking winter of 2006/2007) and has flourished every day since. On average the garden receives 100,000 visitors and will host 10-12 groups for Firewise Landscaping classes per year.

May is Wildfire Awareness Month in Idaho and the garden will be in full bloom; so come and visit to see the variety of grasses, plants/shrubs, and trees that you can use on your property!
