It all looks good! I understand the use of pine straw, I'm just not a fan of it!

I'v never seen pine needles bailed like that. Ours just have two strings that go around them. They come in a rectangle.

I'm not a fan of the straw etheir glad people don't request it around here. How do you trim the grass around it without being all up in it? With mulch you (if done right) have a nice bed edge to seperate the two. Good work on the rest.

Same goes with pine straw. Still has a nice bed edge to separate the 2. Trim it like everything else. Easier to work with than mulch. Mulch washes away to quickly. Pine straw water runs right through it.

I like both.

If we did a clean up on that house first thing we probably do is clean up and get rid of all that ugly pine straw or hay.

Cut a bed edge like you do with mulch and tuck the edges in... Same end result as mulch yet the mess will mulch up with a mower unlike mulch thrown in the yard with a string trimmer or edger
