Free Mulch!

Need free mulch for your water-wise landscaping projects?

Mulch is available on a first come first serve basis. If you have a truck to fill up or just need a trash can full you can come by and get it (bring a shovel)!  This is a very busy time of year for landscaping so the mulch bin may be empty.
