 “Go Green in the Spring” Promotion

 

The City of Santa Maria Utilities Department is offering free landscape burlaps and sprinklers for City residents. The promotion is to remind homeowners, gardeners, and landscapers to Go Green in the Spring by pulling weeds and collecting clippings to spruce up the landscape, plant drought-tolerant plants to conserve water, and regularly checking irrigation sprinklers and outdoor faucets to address any leaks.

 

Residents will receive one 7 foot x 7 foot landscape burlap and three Hunter MPR1000 Rotator sprinklers and MPR heads. Requests are limited to one promotional package per household while supplies last. 

 

The landscape burlap can be used to gather yard clippings, branches, leaves, and other green waste materials in the yard or garden and easily transport them to the green waste container, compost pile, or bin.

 

Easily retrofit existing irrigation by transitioning to the MPR1000 Rotators sprinklers to maximize water efficiency and slow precipitation. A product instruction guide is included with the promotion to aid in the installation of the sprinklers.  

 

Santa Maria residents must contact the Utilities Department to reserve their promotion in advance at (805) 925-0951 extension 7270, Monday through Friday, and schedule an appointment for a no-contact pickup.
