    What do you guys use over there in the NE? You are missing out on real beauty. A bale of pine straw covers 60 s.f. when spread 3-4" deep.
    There are suppliers in the SE that might ship truck loads to you. If you can establish commercial accounts that want pine straw over there maybe you could make tons of money.

    I pay 3.50-4.00 per bale. I charge $4.00 labor per bale.

    $2.60 a bale for trailer load
    $2.75-$3 for pick up
    $3.35-$3.59 if delivered to the homeowner.

    Can you get me the phone # of where you get your straw? I'm interested in buying a couple truck loads! PM it to me.
