[ARCHIVED] Wood Mulch is a Great Option for Reducing Erosion from Your Property

Whether spreading it over bare ground or berming at the edge of unstabilized areas, wood mulch helps keep soil in your yard. Apple Valley residents can access the free wood mulch at the Central Maintenance Facility to reduce pollution to local lakes…

Erosion is a big problem for water resources. Soil particles carried along in water out of your yard go to local lakes and ponds via street drains in the curb and gutter or cause nuisances on neighboring properties. Eroded soil clogs waterways, destroys fish habitat, and can carry other harmful chemicals with it. How can you stop erosion? Cover or contain bare ground and stockpiles. Wood mulch is a great option for homeowners that are looking for an erosion control option. You can spread it over the ground or mound it up around your project area to keep soil from moving off your property. It is easy to work with, easy to get, and easy to dispose of (most of us can find a place to hide left over mulch in our yard). On top of all these conveniences, Apple Valley residents have access to free wood mulch at the Central Maintenance Facility.
