Using Pine Straw in Your Landscape Pine straw is popular landscape mulch consisting of the dried and carefully cleaned needles of pine trees. Pine mulch is a renewable, organic, and naturally occurring resource that is also quite beautiful around plants. Really it is no surprise that many people have chosen to use it as a preferred natural landscaping material. Pine Straw does not tend to blow away in the wind, lasts for a reasonable length of time, and gradually enriches the soil as it breaks down. It is also relatively inexpensive and easy to work with to achieve a beautiful and low-maintenance landscape design. Plus Mulching with pine straw is one of the best ways to keep weeds out of your landscape. To apply your pinestraw mulch, begin by cutting the bale of pine straw open with your utility knife or yard trimmers. Simply discard the ties that bound the straw bale together. Next you break up the bale of pine straw with your hands so that you can easily grab handfuls of it to use when applying it. As pine straw is baled, it is typically compressed so that the bales can easily be stacked.
