So you have a big job to do; you need mulch and a lot of it?
Consider buying wholesale mulch at wholesale pricing. Not only will this save you money, but you will also be able to get everything you need for your project or projects more easily. One of the best-looking, affordable options for wholesale mulch is pine straw. Pine straw companies often welcome wholesale orders from individuals in addition to companies and resellers.
Pine mulch is economical mulch for garden beds or landscapes of all types. You will see pine mulch used near homes, in parks, around businesses, and even on professional golf courses around the country. Pine straw is also simple to store and therefore people often buy during spring in bulk at wholesale prices and then store some of the mulch for touch-up application and fall application.
Pine straw is used most commonly in the southernmost states but is being used increasingly all over the United States. One of the reasons is that natural mulch tends to break down slowly over time, adding to the richness of the soil instead of simply covering it. Pine straw tends to be slightly acidic in nature, making it great mulch for acid-loving plants without adding acidic levels that would be detrimental to other plants.
You should take a simple precaution in using mulch. Do not expose any mulch to flame or high heat. Homeowners may forget that placing mulch in the same area where grills and outdoor fireplaces are could be hazardous.
Pine straw mulch provides an excellent weed inhibitor and an attractive rust red color to your plant beds. This vibrant color provides an excellent backdrop for all of your many projects. Weeds do not grow well because of the unique light filtering properties of the pine straw layers, allowing you to garden in a much greener-friendly manner, a fact you can boast about.
In fact pine straw is harvested in such a way that no trees need to be cut down or damaged. Responsible companies tend to alternate harvest years to allow the forests to continue renewing themselves naturally as the pine straw recycles nutrients for the forest floor. A good pine straw distribution company takes good care of its tree stands by controlling weeds, hand raking and then baling pine straw, and selling the pine straw reasonably. By fertilizing the pine stand to promote healthy tree growth and pine straw production, a responsible company leaves a positive mark on the environment while producing a useful product.
