It’s time to start planting your winter garden.
And if you need some mulch to get started … don’t worry about taking out your wallet because I found a place where you can get mulch for free.
HMS Landscapes in Phoenix recycles their lawn trimmings by mulching it and giving it away to you for free.
It’s a great way to recycle since they were generating more than 780 tons of green waste in just one year. The best part, the president of HMS Landscapes says nothing has been added to the mulch, so you get lots of natural nutrients.
So it helps lighten the load in our landfills and helps your pocket all at the same time.
You can pick up the free mulch Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. but be sure to call first.
You can load up bags, buckets, even trucks, and there are no limits on how much mulch you can take.
Now you can get your garden started on a dime. And if gardening isn’t your thing, you can still use the mulch to update your landscaping.
