i'll answer my own post....


You got some curves in the flower bed, its not just a straight bed. It stands out from the orginals. Looks good

I had seen you was installing pinestraw. How much are you putting in there?

I am putting the pinestraw pretty thick and high. Reason is because, it will settle and have that thick look.

Y a edge matt.
Well the edge gives it that separation look from the grass to the flower bed, a cleaner professional look

what makes you choose the pine straw from other mulches? Does it have any benefits?

i still had to clean up the pinestraw in the grass area.

pinestraw is what the customer wanted in there so i went with that.

I really like the look of the pine straw, I've never seen nor heard of it before. Up here it's all cedar bark mulch/nuggets since we've got so much of it lying around from sawmills, it's dirt cheap. We also get a lot of lava rock with the Asian houses, which I think is pretty ugly, so I never do it.

What's the lifespan on the pinestraw?
