There are many reasons for using pine straw as a mulch.
Pine Straw enhances the beauty of any landscape by providing a cover of uniform color that is neutral and non-detracting to plants. It helps to conserve soil moisture by reducing water evaporation from the soil. It provides natural weed and grass deterrent when the straw is applied deep enough (2-3 inches) to smother unwanted weeds and plants. It needles naturally interlock and create a “blanket” effect which keeps wind and rain from washing or blowing away the topsoil.
Pine Straw prevents the soil from hardening so moisture is able to reach the roots of plants it also insulates the soil as a great early spring gardening technique to warm the soil for early planting. As it decomposes it disintegrates into additional nutrients for your plants or shrubs.
