Mulch LRThe City of Burbank Forestry Division offers free mulch to Burbank residents at three locations throughout the City.  Home delivery is available for large quantity loads.  The amount of wood to leaves in the mulch will vary.


  • Mulching is essential to the survival of your landscape during a drought.  Mulch will reduce the amount of water that evaporates from your soil, greatly reducing your need to water your plants.
  • Mulch improves the quality of your soil by breaking up clay and allowing better water and air movement through the soil.  Mulch provides nutrients to sandy soil and improves its ability to hold water.
  • Mulch acts as an insulating layer on top of soil, keeping it cooler in the summer.  Roots like that!
  • Mulch keeps weeds down, and the weeds that grow are much easier to pull.


Residents must load and transport their own mulch.  Locations are resupplied as mulch becomes available.
