was wondering if its common to use pineneedles as mulch. do you?
Yes! They make a great mulch. They break down slowly and don’t make the soil acidic like a lot of people say. Check out this video.
nice! pine needles it is then! i will use them in my garden. they have a pine tree in my yard. i get pine needles free.
So how did they work out for you?
works great! no more issues with weeds. plants seem happy. nice having an almost unlimited supply of free mulch right next to my garden.
I have definitely seen pine needles used as mulch! They’re very helpful to use since there’s usually a plethora of them, very helpful!
I also noticed that you can use leaves and hay/straw as well! They are all good for resisting weed penetration, but I would bet they aren’t as aesthetically pleasing as pine needles, haha.
Thanks for your question, I learned a lot!
