Mulch Mayhem

Water-saving mulch available May 4th

Roseville, Calif.- Free water-saving mulch will be available during Mulch Mayhem events in Roseville and Rocklin on Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 8 a.m. to noon.

These FREE events are designed to help local residents get their yards ready for summer. Mulch slows evaporation, moderates soil temperature, beautifies landscapes 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).
