        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

                sounds like it will be a nice finished product...can't wait to see the end result.

                  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?
