March Mulch Madness starts March 4! Titusville's Water Conservation Program wants to help Titusville water customers increase their mulch footprint by giving an incentive for residents to use mulch in their yards.
What is March Mulch Madness? For every 4 bags of plain pine bark mulch you buy from March 4 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. Adding mulch to your plant beds after planting your new spring flowers and shrubs will help to retain moisture during upcoming hot summer days.
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 4 through March 31 at the store of their choice. The dated receipt(s), 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, 2910 Garden Street, Titusville, FL 32796. All paperwork must be postmarked or received by April 4, 2024.
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. Providing this incentive, encourages them 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. With continued use, mulch can improve soil structure and reduce soil compaction.
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.
