Pine Straw Mulch - 1 Gallon Bags
What is pine straw? It's an all-natural, lightweight and organic ground cover that comes from the needles of pine trees. Once the needles fall to the ground, they are raked up and go through an environmentally friendly process of cleaning and preparation. No trees are harmed or harvested in obtaining the needles.
It's suitable for both commercial growers and the hobby gardener. Gardeners and growers of various kinds will benefit from the use of Pine Straw. It's aesthetically attractive due to its original composition. It dramatically reduces weeds from growing through and disrupting the other plants. It can also slow down, if not prevent water evaporation because it maintains the moisture that plants need to develop. The straw also acts as a protective layer on top of the earth that insulates warmth during the cold seasons. This can prevent the freezing of garden plants without the use of plastics or tarps.
It is effortless to spread around on the desired areas as it does not require mechanical know-how. Just put on some gloves and lay the straw about 3 inches thick and 3 inches away from the base of tree trunks and shrubs. Add about an inch annually to maintain the ground covering as the first layer of straw will naturally settle.
Over time, the straw will break down and absorb into the soil. This creates a nourishing mulch that will continue to feed the ground and the plants naturally. No chemical sprays that can harm plants, animals or people. Because it breaks down more slowly than most commercial mulches, it does not have to be replaced as often.
Environmentally friendly, organic and all natural, this reasonably priced coverage is increasingly becoming more popular among growers and gardeners alike. Supplied by nature and given back to nature.
Pine straw mulch will truly work wonders for your garden.
