Lakewood residents can pick up free mulch on three Saturday mornings – May 5, 12 and 19, 7 a.m. to noon – 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 city claims the reground mulch makes for excellent ground cover in shrub and tree beds, and helps landscaped areas retain water, reducing the need for watering. Other benefits are keeping soil temperatures consistent, which helps the establishment of root systems, creating a weed barrier, and helping beautify landscaping.
