Pinestraw is a specialized rodent and insect free ground covering that provides quality bedding for your trees and plants. Pinestraw comes in two types - slash and long needle. The long needle is the longest of the two types and is typically more expensive. One bale of pinestraw covers between 32 and 38 square feet of area.
While pinestraw is the most common and usually the most affordable mulch option in the Southeast, there are other types of mulch (most notably hardwood or pine - in colors brown, black, or red) available that also provide their own unique and impressive look.
