Many producers of pine straw deal wholesale, so if you're looking for enough pine straw mulch for groundcover in your garden you could find yourself needing way below the minimum order of the full semi-truckload they'll deliver.
Don't worry if you find yourself in this position though; it's easy to get top quality pine straw bales in just the amount you need by finding your local garden landscape supply retailer. You can find Custom Pine Straw's pine straw at many garden supply and home improvement stores all over the United States.
Before you go shopping you'll need to know how much pine (needle) straw you need. Use our pine straw coverage calculator to save guesswork and find the exact number of pinestraw bales for your job. All you have to do is input the length and width of your yard or gardening area and tell us if you are applying fresh pine straw mulch or covering up an old layer. Then you can head for your local garden center or landscaping supply store confident you know just what's required.
Of course, if your project is pretty big and you need 1300 to 1450 or more bales, then you can simply call Custom Pine Straw and we'll make a pine straw delivery right to your door. Pine straw can be bulky, and our bales are compressed so there's quite a bit of hand raked straw in each to get the job done. When ordering a full truckload make sure to have a dry place to store the pine straw if you're not using it right away. If you're ordering more than one load or repeat loads, often we can drop a dry enclosed trailer at your location for use as storage.
