Free Product Giveaway Saturday!

Second Saturday of the Month

San Pasqual Valley Soils loves to donate back to our community. Each month, only on the second Saturday of the month, we will offer a single product of our choosing for free to the public. We invite you to come and load up whatever amount you need for your own benefit. Free if self-loaded into your vehicle using your tools. Product must be tarped or contained.

We will load any standard pick-up truck or small trailer (approx. 1-2 cubic yds) for a fee of $10/load. Guests that would like larger quantities must self-load it manually or purchase the material at our standard wholesale price which includes loading at no additional cost. Delivery of purchased material is available for a fee throughout San Diego county by San Pasqual Valley Soils trucks.

Our Next “Free Product Giveaway Saturday” is on March 13, 2021 from the hours of 7 am – 1:30 pm.

Our featured product for February is Grower’s Mulch. Stay tuned to find out the featured product for March!

All guests must comply with our SPVS Public Event Safety Guidelines in the attachment below.

Featured Product

Grower’s Mulch

Grower’s Mulch is coarser with a dark brown hue perfect for showcasing all of the plants, shrubs and trees in your landscape! This mulch suppresses weeds and helps retain moisture during dry spells. It is long lasting and great for erosion control when used as a 3” to 4” thick depth mulch. It is ideal for use on slopes and paths.

San Pasqual Valley Composted mulches have been tested and shown to be free of pathogenic organisms meeting the highest quality requirements of the US Composting Council (USCC). Customers using our composted products can be reassured they are applying a soil mulch that is safe to use on all their trees and shrubs.

For more information on the benefits of using mulch, check out this a great article by Dr. Jim Downer of UCCE Ventura, “Benefits of Mulch”.

You may also want to learn more about managing erosion in your landscape after our recent rain and hail storms. Dr. K’s blog on “Compost Erosion Control Blankets” is a great tool to help with this!
