"How to spread pine straw and use it as a mulch alternative in your garden beds. Learn how to use this ecofriendly and affordable mulch. While mulch is the typical option for mulching a garden bed, I decided to look into pine straw as mulch after it was recommended for use with blueberry bushes. Last year I over did it with a huge vegetable garden and this year I decided to seed the garden over with grass seed, use a Garden Tower for my vegetables, and keep a thin berry garden along our fence. My kids eat a lot more berries than they eat cucumbers so I wanted to grow what we’ll eat the most of. I also wanted to refocus on just a few items so I wouldn’t get overwhelmed with my garden this year. Sometimes it’s a lot to learn to grow multiple things in one year."

There's alot of reasons why you should adopt pine straw for mulching and one of them is the eco-friendly solution it offers. It saves you alot of water and plants like strawberries and blueberries love them. It also lasts a whole year so you won't worry about replenishing it very often.
