As the name says, pine straw comes from the pine tree. The tree sheds it needles throughout the year and then they are raked up and baled without harming the tree. This means that pine straw is an environmentally friendly way to landscape.
Pine straw is used to mulch gardens and landscape areas. It helps prevent the growth of weeds, soil erosion, and water evaporation. It can also help keep your soil warm so that your plants don’t get too cold.
How to put down pine straw
It may be helpful to wear gloves when applying pine straw as the needles can be pointy. All you have to do is take handfuls of the pine straw and shake it out over the area you want it. You want to apply it a couple inches thick to get the best results. Pine straw is a lot lighter and easier to spread than mulch which makes it a super simple option. You don’t want to put the pine straw right up to your plants though. You want to leave a couple inches around the plant so that it can get the water it needs.
Pine Straw Tips
