Free Mulch for your Garden - So easy you'll wonder...

Why have you been paying $5 a bag (or more!) for chipped wood at the home improvement store?  It's sitting around town in piles, just waiting for you to roll up and grab it.  It's a program by the Los Angeles City Sanitation Department.

There are 10 different locations throughout Los Angeles where you can get free mulch, as much as you can haul.  More info and photos after the jump!

I wish they had this available in Oklahoma City

They have this available, but it isn't always the best thing to put close to a house.

Thanks for sharing. I agree with Alan. J R has a good point too. However unlike the rubber mulch made from tires that you pay for organic is probably better if termites aren't a problem.

Hmm, the termite thing is a good point. As i was putting it around the ground, I didn't see a single bug in it, though. I'd say my neighbor's fence is a bigger termite threat than this mulch, if you know what I mean.

Sounds like a great program.
