Our top quality pine needles come direct from the fields from both North Carolina and South Carolina. These needles are hand raked, baled, and delivered to us directly from the field ensuring their quality and beautiful color. Our bales are highly compressed measuring approximately 13″ x 14″ x 28″ in size and covering approximately 35 square feet at the recommended 3 inches in depth. Pine straws auburn-like color provides you landscaping beds with a beautiful, clean, decorative covering. Pine needles should be replaced once a year if being used to protect plants and add nutrients back to the soil, but should be replaced twice each year if being used for decorative purposes.
