March Mulch Madness is about to begin! This March, Titusville's Water Conservation Program wants to help you increase your mulch footprint by giving Titusville water customers an incentive to use mulch in their yards.
What is March Mulch Madness? For every 4 bags of plain pine bark mulch you buy from March 10 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. Using mulch in your home landscape helps retain moisture, control weeds, and reduce erosion and runoff from your yard.
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 just need to buy at least 4 bags of plain pine bark mulch any time from March 10 through March 31 at the store of their choice. The dated receipts, which must state "pine bark" or "bark" for the items purchased, are submitted online along with an application. The rules and application form are all online and must be submitted by April 4. Participants unable to upload receipts must print out the application, 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, 2023.
According to Maureen Phillips, Titusville’s Water Conservation & Public Outreach Manager, “March Mulch Madness gives our water customers yet another way to save water in their yards. With this incentive, we want to help encourage them to find more ways to use mulch with their spring planting.” Ms. Phillips added that mulch is a great way to retain water in plant beds and reduce weeds. Plain pine bark mulch is long lasting, does not leach chemicals like some other mulches, and is made from tree material normally discarded.
March Mulch Madness is only available for a limited time. For more information on the program go to www.titusville.com/mulch or call 321-567-3865, option 5.
