    I know there is a equation for mulch and the depth. But is there a equation for pine needles ? down here in the south we dont use much mulch so any help would be great.

    One bale at 3" should cover appx 50 sf. Give me a call and I will give you the phone number for the guy I buy mine from.

    I get paid to pick 'em up and you to put down. :D

    Today I raked up boat load (actually 8'x4'x3') of pine needles from some landscape beds.

    You want 'em? :)

    Just curious.. how much does it cost for pine needles?

    We have found that 1 bale of long needle pinestraw generally covers about 35 square foot. Sometimes they go a little farther and sometimes they barely make the 35. Hope this helps.
