The area immediately adjacent to your house is particularly important in terms of an  effective defensible space in event of a wildland fire. Within an area extending at least 30 feet from your house, the vegetation should be kept:

LEAN...small amounts of flammable vegetation. accumulation of dead vegetation or other flammable debris.

GREEN...plants kept healthy and green during the fire season.
