Reddish Long Leaf Pine Straw: Low-Cost Mulch for Fall

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

Secrets for Integrating Beneficial Pine Straw Into Your Landscape

15217576 - pine straw for sale at a garden supply center in north carolinaWhen you think of pine straw, you may automatically visualize this natural material on a farm. However, the pine needles from trees create an outstanding mulch option for your garden. If you’re unfamiliar with this use and the optimal ways to integrate pine straw into your landscape, here are some tips.

Natural Mulch Benefits  

When you want to use an organic material as mulch in your garden, pine straw is a natural choice with multiple advantages. The following are some of the benefits:

  • Appealing color and texture
  • Compression-resistant material
  • Easy distribution
  • High nitrogen content
  • Insect and rodent protection
  • Moisture retention
  • Slow decomposition
  • Soil temperature regulation
  • Weed barrier

When the pine needles eventually break down, they will also add acid to the soil, which helps the following:

  • Azaleas
  • Camellias
  • Dogwoods
  • Evergreens
  • Ferns
  • Fuchsias
  • Gardenias
  • Hollies
  • Hydrangeas
  • Magnolias

You’ll also find that the loosely connected pine needles will remain on otherwise challenging slopes in your garden. This protection is particularly helpful for roots during inclement weather.

Hints for Pine Straw Placement

Once you have your bale of pine straw in the garden, are you wondering how to proceed? Here are some tips:

  • Before you begin, pull out weeds, prune, trim and tidy up the area
  • Apply a 3-inch layer approximately a foot beyond the bed edge
  • Use a rake to polish the look of your pine straw blanket
