Lawn maintenance during the upcoming fire season

September 11, 2018

This year’s wet winter combined with warmer spring weather means lawn, weeds and grass are growing quickly at the moment.  It’s important that lawn and grass is kept short before it dries out and becomes a fire hazard.  In hot, dry and windy weather, fires can easily start, spread and cause damage. One common fire hazard can be long, dry or dead grass.

Regular mowing to a maximum height of 150 millimetres is recommended until October and 100 millimetres for the hotter months of November to March. Make sure to keep your lawn short and tidy during these months so you can enjoy the sun!
