On May 20th, Terra teamed up with Yardzen to create three gorgeous, functional and fire-resistant yards for Ember Stomp 2023. The landscape design firm operates completely online with one goal – to help people live better outside.
Ember Stomp was created when the founders had to rebuild their home after it was destroyed by wildfire. They discovered that the landscaping process was a complicated, expensive system and knew they could improve it.
So, they did. Employing horticulturalists, landscape architects, exterior designers and construction experts, the company provides its customers with a plan based on their vision and connects them with the people they need to get the job done.

The Fire Stops Here
The best choice of materials for fire protection is anything ember-resistant. Fortunately, Terra offers many products made of premium materials that won’t easily ignite. The aluminum and mesh Pasadena Collection is perfectly suited to fire-safe design with its clean lines and architectural precision. The Presidio Collection is also a good choice, featuring a glass-topped table with the look of ceramic and durable aluminum frames.
Tips + Tricks from the Pro
Strategy, strategy, strategy. That’s the name of the game when planting in fire country. Here are some tips about fire-resistant yards we learned from the Fire Safe Marin experts:
- Rely on hardscapes like walkways and patios to create a fire break and slow the spread of fire to your home
- Plants should be well-irrigated and maintained, and cleared of dead leaves and debris
- When planting, separate plants to help contain spot fires
- On high-risk red flag days, bring cushions, umbrellas, flammable rugs and mats inside
