In California, wildfires are a real threat. It’s common knowledge that after a fire removes the vegetation from a slope, it now become at risk to mudslide in the event of a rainstorm.
Unfortunately, our rainy season immediately follows the wildfire season. So, to prevent further damage to what may already be a devastated landscape, it is important to respond in advance and avoid making a bad situation worse. We can assess the situation and help to identify unstable hillsides. Once the issue of safety is addressed and risks are minimized, we can begin to consider aesthetics. Cleaning up and hauling away debris and rubbish, redesigning and working to build a new vision, of a stronger and wiser landscape with a defensible area and infrastructure, which may stand a chance if it ever happened again.
