Professionals Laying Pinestraw

Benefits Of Pinestraw

Installing pinestraw on your landscape allows for your lawn to become low maintenance. Other mulch options are higher maintenance and require more work to maintain throughout the years. All you need to do with pinestraw is just fluff it up every now and then, on top of replacing it when the time comes.

Pinestraw is also incredibly cost-effective. The material is long-lasting and easy to use. On top of that, it has a more natural look than other popular mulching methods. This means your landscape will look more timeless.

And likely the most popular benefit is water retention. Each layer of pinestraw will retain water better and keep your plants cool and healthy in the hot summer months.

Frequently Asked Pinestraw Installation Questions

Pinestraw can be installed at any time of the year, but it's best installed during the spring or fall, especially for specific purposes.

  • Spring: installing during this time will help prepare the plants for summer. The pinestraw provides a nice insulating layer that keeps the soil moist and water from evaporating.
  • Fall: the pinestraw, like in the spring, will provide an insulating layer. Instead of keeping them cool and moist, it will keep the plants safe from cold temperatures that could kill them.

Before installation, ensure that the soil is moist so that the pinestraw will retain the moisture for the duration of its lifespan.

It is recommended that the pinestraw be replaced at least once per year, depending on the environmental circumstances. Most pinestraw will last anywhere from 6 to 12 months before degrading.
