Mulch Magic

In an effort to help the community with it's water conservation efforts, the Nevada County Resource Conservation District, Nevada Irrigation District, and Nevada County Fairgrounds are sponsoring our third "Mulch Magic" event.  

On June 2, 2018, stop by the Nevada County Fairgrounds and get a pickup truck bed of shredded redwood mulch.  Mulch is in bulk - not bagged.  You will have to shovel your own mulch.

Some of the benefits of adding mulch to your yard/landscape are:

  • Adding 2 - 3 inches of mulch around trees and plants can save more than 60 gallons of water per week for every 1,000 square feet of irrigated landscape
  • Mulch keeps soil moust and slows evaporation allowing water to sink into the soil
  • Mulch breaks down into the soil providing nutrients for plants
  • Mulch moderates soil temperature and suppresses weeds
