This March, Titusville's Water Conservation Program wants to help you increase your mulch footprint with March Mulch Madness. Using mulch in your home landscape will help to retain moisture, control weeds, and reduce erosion and runoff from your yard.
What is March Mulch Madness? For every 4 bags of plain pine bark mulch you buy from March 18 through March 31, you can receive a $5 credit on your City of Titusville water bill. The maximum credit you can receive is $15 for 12 bags.
The rules for March Mulch Madness are available at www.titusville.com/mulch. This is a limited time program and is only open to City of Titusville single-family residential water customers. To participate, water customers must buy at least 4 bags of plain pine bark mulch any time from March 18 through March 31 at the store of their choice. Participants submit dated receipts that state "pine bark" or "bark" for the items purchased along with an application form. The rules and application form are all online and must be submitted by April 4. Participants unable to upload receipts must print out the form, attach their receipts and mail everything to: Mulch Madness, City of Titusville Conservation, 2836 Garden Street, Titusville, FL 32796. All paperwork must be postmarked or received by April 4, 2022.
According to Maureen Phillips, Titusville’s Water Conservation & Public Outreach Manager, this is the first time Titusville has offered March Mulch Madness. “It’s almost spring and we wanted to do something that would help our residents as they were out planting and working in their yards, while still promoting water conservation,” explained Ms. Phillips. “Mulch is a great way to retain water in your plant beds and reduce weeds.” Plain pine bark mulch is long lasting, does not leach chemicals like some other mulches, and is made from the part of a tree that would normally be discarded.
March Mulch Madness is only available for a limited time. For more information on the program go to www.titusville.com/mulch, or visit Water Resources Conservation pages on the City of Titusville website, or call 321-567-3865, option 5.
