5. How much pine straw will I need for my landscaping or project?
If you have used mulch in the past, a general rule of thumb is one yard of hardwoood mulch will cover approximately 100 sq feet at 2-3 inches deep. Thus, two and half bales of pine straw will cover one yard of mulch. Multiply the length times the width of each of your beds. Then add all your totals up and divide by 100, then multiply by 2.5 and that is the number of bales you will use. In the begining, we suggest you order a few additional bales to ensure ample coverage and margin of error.
