Frequently Asked Questions
How much pine straw do I need?
A bale of pine straw covers about 35 square feet (the size of a 5-by-7 full-size mattress). Use our simple bale calculator to help you figure out just how much you need.
Should I remove the old straw (or leaves) before I put the new straw down?
No. Straw disintegrates more quickly on bare dirt than on old straw. It also adds to mulching, and it’s more work for you!
What should I do about weeds in my plant beds?
Our recommendation would be to cut the weeds down low with a weed eater and then spray them with a weed killer (Roundup, etc). Between the loss of sunlight with the straw application and the weed killer, you should have good results.
What type of straw do you sell?
We have two types of pine straw from two different pine tree species:
– Slash (most common)
– Southern Long Leaf (Southern Long Leaf trees are making a comeback, and this premium straw is increasingly popular. Long Leaf straw looks best; goes further, requiring fewer bales; and lasts longer because the needles don’t decompose as quickly).
When you deliver the straw, where do you put it?
We will put the bales basically anywhere you would like within 15 feet of where we can park the truck. Most deliveries are dropped off either at the end of the driveway or in a pine island in the front yard.
Do you participate in fund-raising events?
Yes, except during peak season in spring. We would be delighted to work with your non-profit organization to help you raise money. We have participated with churches, schools, bands and athletic teams in our delivery areas. Contact us for details.
