Can you use pineneedles as mulch?

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.

Hey there!

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!
