Free mulch available at self-serve sites

Westminster Forestry is offering free mulch at several self-serve locations. The sites are open 24 hours a day. Please bring your own containers. 


  • Westminster Hills Park, 4105 W. 80th Ave. - northwest corner of parking lot
  • Oakhurst Park, 9255 Ammons St. - northeast corner of east parking lot
  • Open Space parking lot, 112th Ave. and Vrain St. - north side

Benefits of Mulch:

  • 25% water savings over unmulched area
  • Weed control
  • Improves soil quality
  • Reduces erosion

Proper Application:

  • Spread mulch evenly at a depth of 2-4 inches
  • Do not mulch against tree trunk: avoid "volcanoes"

PLEASE NOTE: Tree limbs, debris or dumping is not allowed at these sites. Illegal dumping is subject to Westminster Municipal Code regulations.

If you have questions, please contact Open Space Supervisor Patti Wright at 303-658-2201.
