A friend of mine had cut his grass to two inches. The grass fire apparently ignited his porch, and his all steel house was lost to fire.
Most of the grass is probably of the weedy alien type, excellent tinder. The cutting interferes with regrowth of indigenous perennial species which are usually bunch grasses that burn, if dry, more reluctantly. The native ones tend to stay green longer, and even when dry burn less vigorously because the fuel is packed together more tightly, something like a phone book and one that has its pages crumpled up, thus allowing a bigger oxygen envelope. Lest we forget the fire triangle.
W, you’ve got valuable knowledge to share, thank you. but don’t chip a tooth tooting your horn.
W, thank you! Kate, thank you! Anyone know where I can get native bunch grasses to plant?
