City of New Rochelle Hosts Mulch Mowing Workshop November 5th


Rather than raking, bagging, or transporting fall leaves offsite this year, consider mulching, a sustainable alternative that actually benefits lawns and gardens! The City of New Rochelle in partnership with Greenburgh Nature Center will host a free mulch mowing workshop on Saturday, November 5th at 3pm at Huguenot Park (North Ave in front of New Rochelle High School).

Join us for a live demonstration by a professional landscaper, get your questions answered, and see how easy it is to put those leaves to work to enrich your soil, grass and flowers!

Adopted by City Council in 2013, the “Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em” campaign promotes mulch mowing and its advantages:
• A healthy property: Mulching recycles nutrients into the soil to feed lawns & plants, provides a free natural fertilizer, and helps retain moisture.
• Savings of time and effort: Mulching in place is easier and faster than raking or blowing leaves.
• Helping the environment: Leaf piles block streets and traffic, clog storm drains, and result in excess nutrient runoff (phosphorus & nitrogen), polluting our waterways. Transporting and disposing of grass and leaves as yard waste wastes energy and contributes to pollution, too.

Additional information is available on the City’s website at or by calling 914.235.4029.
