Free Mulch Days in Roseville, Rocklin, Sacramento
Roseville, CA- Free water-conserving mulch will be available to local residents during Mulch Mayhem events throughout the Sacramento region on Saturdays May 6 and 20.
These free events are designed to help local residents get their landscapes and yards ready for the hot days of summer. Mulch slows evaporation, moderates soil temperature and even controls weeds. As it breaks down, mulch also adds helpful nutrients to the soil.
"Mulch might be one of the most under-appreciated water conservation tools at our disposal," said Amy Talbot, Regional Water Authority Water Efficiency Program Manager. "Mulch is like icing on a cake, because it keeps the soil moist the way icing keeps a cake moist."
Water managers estimate that residents can save 30 gallons of water for every 1,000 square feet just by adding two to three inches of organic mulch (e.g., leaves and wood chips) around trees and plants.
Sponsored by the Regional Water Authority and local water providers, Mulch Mayhem will take place at the following locations, days and times (until supplies last):
