 What Implement would you use

I have a BX23 on 3 acres of gently sloped land. It has emerging small sage brush, cheet grass and some weeds. Due to high fire danger in our west central Nevada area, the home owners association is recommending that homeowners keep a 20 to 30 ft fire break around the property. What attachment would you use to keep such an area clear? I would like to keep it fairly smooth and don't want to "mow" it every month. I am leaning towards a rotorary tiller. Opinons please.

The only alternatives to mowing I see are to kill all the vegetation with herbicide or to pave it over. If you till it you'll just bring up all the seeds and provide better soil for it to germinate in. You could rent a cutter and mow it once, then buy a sprayer and spray it regularly to keep the growth down. There are soil sterilization herbicides (Triox comes to mind, not sure if it's still being sold) which pretty much prevent anything from growing for months or years. If you go with herbicide you need to pay attention to groundwater.

As Ken stated, there really is few choices, spray, cut or uproot.

Spraying is the down & dirty way although you then have an area of dead dry material that may be flamable, that would need to be cleaned up, same as cuttings.

I would think in the long run, once you get the material cleaned up, a set of chain harrows or a pulverizer would keep the area clear of new growth and looking nice also.

Maybe our friend Mark (DRankin) will chime in on this thread, that is his neck of the woods.

Best of luck.

Bobo, you should stop by and look at my chain harrow. It might do the job for you.

Maybe I'm missing something, but if bobodude doesn't want to regularly drag a cutter over his fire break how would dragging a chain harrow over it be an improvement?

KWSCHUMM you hit it right on the nail head, nobody wants to spray due to ground water. I know my neighbors wouldn't appreciate it for sure. The water table is down at 180 ft but the HOA would have a cow. Most in the area hire low cost labor to literally pull or hoe the sage out of the ground. I just can't believe that a box blade couldn't do the job of removing the vegetation and keep it clean for a reasonable amount of time. Besides to cover a 1/2 acre with Triox would be might expensive. I have used sterilizers before and you really have to soak it good and then its only lasts for maybe a year at most. Anyone else want to give their 2 cents?

Since your HOA is having a cow anyway.... you could build a dirt bike track around your house and have races every weekend. That should keep the regrowth down Laughing out loud

He has to drag something over the firebreak. Or drive on it a lot. There are only 3-4 months of the year that things are green and growing here without supplemental water.

A lawn mower will make a fire break here if the ground isn't too rough. I've done that too....
