"Also known as pinestraw, pine needles work best around trees, shrubs, and perennials, such as Japanese maples, witch hazel, and delphiniums. The reddish-brown strands look especially natural on wooded properties. To get the most coverage, gently fluff the straw during application." - This Old House ®
"I live in North Dallas, TX and have purchased samples of pine straw from several different vendors, both locally and through the internet, to find the best quality possible for the landscaping of my home. The Pine Straw Store® is clearly the winner, above all. Thank you for the 8 large boxes of longleaf which I have recently purchased from you." - DR. BRIAN SKRAINKA, MD
Thank you! I received eight boxes of pine straw from you by FedEx yesterday, and I've put down three of the boxes so far. I just wanted to say thanks for making this available to us in New Jersey. We've tried mulch, and my dogs eat every drop of it, and that can't be good! I knew the dogs wouldn't eat pine straw, and I've begged the garden centers around here to get some, but they won't do it. So I found you on the internet and just wanted to thank you for the service you provide....I wanted that beautiful natural look in my yard without danger to my dogs eating something that wasn't good for them, and the benefit I receive is a very attractive mulch, no more weeds, and safety for my two dogs! So thanks! I loved the way it's boxed, making it easy to handle and work with a little at a time. - Cheryl from New Jersey.
Irene and Daniel from New Jersey ordered 2 large boxes of 9" Standard Pine Straw and turned their backyard into one beautiful place. Here is what Irene and Daniel had to say on their website:
"Here are some shots of our backyard after completing the bulk of the landscaping. Underneath the large pine tree we laid down pine straw courtesy of The Pine Straw Store (www.PineStraw.com) and the effect has been wonderful. Enjoy!"
Here is a list of just a few plants, flowers, and trees that grow very well when pine straw is used: Roses, azaleas, camellias, hostas, ferns, hydrangea, magnolias, coleus, rhododendrons, snapdragons, cineraria, bleeding heart, geranium, lily of the valley, rose of sharon, rhodies, hellebores, astilbe, strawberries, blueberries, choke cherry and other bedding plants look wonderful when pine straw is used as a mulch in beds. If you have a question about a specific plant, please consult your local professional.
