This March, Titusville’s Water Conservation Program wants to help you increase your mulch footprint with March Mulch Madness. 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. Using mulch in your home landscape will help to retain moisture, control weeds, and reduce erosion and runoff from your yard.
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.
What You Need To Do:
- You need to be a City of Titusville single-family residential water customer. Why? Because the purpose of Mulch Madness is to save water outdoors and the credit is applied to your water bill. Single-family homes also tend to over-water because of too much turf.
- Go buy plain pine bark mulch any time from March 18 through March 31 at the store of your choice. It must be plain pine bark mulch. No cypress, no rubber, no dyed mulches. Buy your bagged mulch in increments of four in order to maximize your credit: 4 Bags – $5 Credit; 8 Bags – $10 Credit; 12 Bags – $15 Credit. Bags must be at least 1.5 cubic feet. (We aren’t giving partial credits, so why buy 7 bags and get a $5 credit when you can buy 8 and get a $10 credit.)
- Keep your receipt(s). All receipts must state “pine bark” or “bark” for the item and must be dated.
- Before April 4, you need to fill out the form below, attach your receipts in jpg or pdf format, and submit the form. If you can not take a picture or scan your receipts, you will need to print out the form, attach your 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.
TA-DA! That’s all you have to do. Your plants will be happier, your wallet will be happier, and YOU will be saving water.
