Lakewood residents are invited to pick up free mulch between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. on two Saturdays, June 24 and July 1, at the City Greenhouse, 9556 W. Yale Ave. Staff will be available with a loader to assist residents.

Mulch is the byproduct of Lakewood’s tree trimming operations and limb drop-off events. The mulch has been reground, which makes for excellent ground cover in shrub and tree beds. Mulch helps landscaped areas retain water, which reduces the need for watering. It also helps keep soil temperatures consistent, which helps the establishment of root systems. Mulch is an excellent weed barrier and helps beautify landscaping.
