Submit your winning photo!

South Mesa invites its shareholders / customers to participate in its fire retardant landscaping competition. Fire retardant landscaping uses strategically placed fire retardant plants and defensible space to counter the spread of fire in your home.

The winner of the $ 200 Local Nursery Gift Certificate will be judged according to three categories:

Fire-resistant plant species

Landscapes with plants close to the ground that have a low sap content, grow without an accumulation of dead leaves, are easy to care for and tolerate drought.

Defender room

Landscapes that maintain a boundary at least 10 feet from your home and include decorative rocks, patios, paths, and similar features that provide a fuel break.

Overall aesthetic

It’s time to show off all the hard work you’ve put into your landscape! Submit photos that best capture the beauty of your home and garden to win.
