Mulch Mayhem returns to Roseville May 20

Free mulch available to Roseville water customers

Last Updated: 3/9/2017

It's that simple: mulch saves water.  Roseville water customers interested in receiving FREE mulch can swing by the Placer County Fairgrounds on May 20 from 9 a.m. to noon.  This is one of many ways you can be as water efficient in your garden.  

This free event is 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.  It is estimated 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.

Limit 1 yard per customer, per vehicle (enough to fill a pickup truck), available for City of Roseville residents only. First-come, first-served until supplies are gone.

This event takes place at the Placer County Fair Grounds, Lot B, 800 All American City Blvd.

If you're not a Roseville water customer, you can see if your water supplier is participating.
