Mulch Available at Divide Slash Site

Need mulch? We have LOADS of it at the Divide Slash Site (just east of the intersection of Hwys 24 & 67 in Divide, CO- take Hybrook Rd. south -the site is on the left, past the post office).

You can load your own (unlimited) for free during regular operating hours 9a-3p, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (closed Sun., Sept. 3rd) until the site closes at the end of October, or until we run out of mulch – whichever comes first. Need help loading? We can help on Sat., Sept 9th. – $5 a pickup load.

Benefits of Mulching

  • Maintains soil moisture
  • Improves soil aeration, drainage, & structure
  • Serves as an insulating
  • Blanket for soil
  • Helps control weeds
  • Reduces potential damage from ‘weed whackers’ & other lawn equipment
  • Improves overall look of landscape
