Most gardeners are planners. We need to schedule projects and maintain order as the seasons change. If you’ve noticed the shorter days and slipping temperatures at night, you can feel the transition into fall.

As you shift with the season, you’ve probably started to think about protecting your bulbs. If you’ve doubled up on your planting efforts for a spectacular show next spring, you definitely want to ensure a good return. What’s an easy and decorative way to create a warm blanket of insulation during the upcoming months?

In a word: mulch!

Colorful Autumn Mulch

Although two kinds of pine straw are sold in Wilmington, N.C., we carry reddish pine straw. Instead of brown “slash” pine straw with shorter needles, we like the long needles, which range from 7 to 9 inches. Our responsive supplier provides same-day deliveries, so you know the bales are fresh!

In addition, we have a sheltered area at Superior Sod & Garden Supplies, where the pine straw stays completely dry during bad weather. As you start to spread mulch around your garden, you can depend on us to keep you fully supplied. To provide the best protection, you can use a generous hand because pine straw is one of the most affordable mulch options.

Advantages of Pine Straw

Along with lower cost, here are some of the other benefits of pine straw:

  • Protects the ground from wind, rain and snow
  • Adds nutrients to fortify soil and plants
  • Provides a natural and easy-to-spread material
  • Offers a material that generally remains in place
  • Blocks weed growth and stubborn roots
