Mulch reduces the amount of water that evaporates from your soil, which means you'll be able to water less. Our Mulch Brochure (PDF) and this Bay-Friendly Guide to Mulch (PDF) provide comprehensive information on using mulch in your landscape.
LawntoGarden.org has a regional marketplace that helps you find providers of mulch and compost made from recycled materials. This includes arbor mulch (tree trimmings) that is free for pick-up or delivery. They also provide free tools like a materials calculator and how-to videos on their main website.
