Mulch Mayhem

May 12 @ 12:00 am

Mulch Mayhem in May

Free water-conserving mulch available Saturdays May 5, 12 and 19

Rocklin & Roseville Locations Available!

Free water-conserving mulch will be available to local residents during Mulch Mayhem events throughout the Sacramento region on Saturdays May 5, 12 and 19.

These free events are designed to help local residents get their 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.

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 plants and four to six inches around trees (taking care to keep mulch away from the base of trees), according to the Sacramento Tree Foundation.

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):
