Lawn Safety

Observe basic safety precautions in doing routine lawn maintenance:

  • Never fill a hot lawn mower with gasoline.
  • Store gasoline only in approved, labeled containers with lids intact.
  • Refill cans at the gas station on the ground. Do not fill in the bed of a truck, where static electricity can ignite the vapors
  • Remove underbrush and combustible debris from around your house to form a clear area of at least 50 feet on all sides
  • It is illegal to burn yard debris within the St. Augustine city limits.
