Spring is Here ... FREE Mulch!

Real Estate Agent with 214.422.0729 www.SamIAmHouses.com



It's time to get our yards back to beautiful, which if you're thinking of SELLING your house is a must to maximize your home's Curb Appeal! One way to do that is to add MULCH to your planters, trees and flower beds. According to Menards Garden Center, the many benefits of MULCH include:


• Completes the look of your yard or flower bed

• Acts as a natural weed control

• Maintains moisture levels in your soil, protecting from over and under watering

• Acts as a barrier to fluctuating temperatures that can cause damage or death to your plants

• Plant-based mulch adds nutrients back into the soil as it decomposes

• Helps cool plant roots 


Speaking of MULCH, did you know the City of Garland's Hinton Regional Landfill and Wood Recycling Facility, offers FREE MULCH to anybody who'd like some?!? You read that right!

Hinton Landfill & Wood Recycling Facility

The Hinton Landfill has a Recycling Center that does "Wood Recycling" which consists of cut brush and trees that the Residents of the City of Garland & City of Rowlett have picked up from their residence. The Wood Recycling shreds/chips the collected Brush and Trees into MULCH.


So how much MULCH can you get, as much as you want! It's a self-serve area, meaning you need to bring your own tools to collect the MULCH and the container for it, which typically is the bed of a truck.


The MULCH is located at the Recycling Center inside the Hinton Regional Landfill. At the gate, turn right and it's at the end of building sitting in a trailer. 



Now before going all MULCH crazy in your yards, here are a few tips I learned from the Menards Gardening Center ...

  • Remove as much of the old layers of MULCH as possible before you add more.
  • Your MULCH should never be more than three inches thick in a planting bed.
  • You should also apply MULCH in the winter, after the 1st freeze, to keep the ground uniformly cold to keep plants dormant and to keep the soil temperature from fluctuating when we have those random winter warm spells. 


Happy Spring everyone and thank you very MULCH City of Garland Environmental Services!  (Pun intended)
