Pennington Pine Straw Mulch is now available at Spring Creek Feed Center. One bag of Pennington Pine Straw Mulch covers 120 sq. ft. , with a depth of up to 3 inches deep and sells for $15.99. You’d need 5 1/2 bags of the cheaper, cedar mulch from the big box store to get the same coverage as one bag of our Pennington Pine Straw Mulch.
Spreading mulch over your garden and landscaping soil is the best way to save time and energy in your yard. Mulch helps the soil hold moisture so you don’t have to water as often, suppresses weeds and prevents erosion. The benefits* of pine straw mulch over the more tradition mulches such as cedar and cypress are listed below:
- Pine straw interlocks over landscapes so it will not wash out of beds like some other mulches
- Pine straw remains loose and friable; will not form a top crust like some wood mulches
- Pine straw allows water to infiltrate readily into the soil for plant availability and avoids wasteful irrigation runoff
