Are you using the right mulch? Discover how pine straw installation could be a game-changer for your landscaping.
Pine straw is increasing in use and popularity in the south, and that includes the Columbia, Blythewood area. In fact, Sparta Landscaping successfully uses pine straw installation to protect and nourish plantings for our clients. Read on to learn more about the benefits of this natural garden mulch.
Where there are pine trees, there are pine needles. They are plentiful, sustainable, and renewable, and they are cost-efficient. You might look at the price and see that it is sometimes slightly higher than mulch, but there is a payoff. As a matter of fact, pine straw is cheaper and lasts significantly longer than mulch, so it needs replacing and restoring less often. Also, if you already have pine trees in your lawn, you can use what they naturally shed to incorporate into additional pine straw.
Pine straw is made of long needle pine without any chemical additives. Then, the needles shed from existing pine trees are raked and baled like straw. Unlike some wood mulch found to have chemicals such as creosote in it, pine straw is chemical-free.
Pine straw is not only affordable but is an eco friendly option for your residential or commercial landscaping. Pine straw needles are harvested after there have fallen from trees, meaning no trees are harmed by heavy machinery since harvesting is done by hand.
Are you looking for an alternative to traditional wood mulch for your property? The crews at Sparta Landscaping recommend and have experience with pine straw installation that can be a game-changer for your outdoor living space.
