    I have not used any, but I have seen it in person. It looks like uncooked spaghetti.

    How does it compare to rubber mulch?
    Is it as heavy?

    :waving: That thread was posted last month by me.:hammerhead:

    Textraw is a very good product and does not look like anything like wet spagetti. I have a job putting some more out next week. The best thing to do is get a sample from them and see for yourself.

    It is nothing like rubber mulch, I have looked into rubber much and decided that was something I did not want to mess with. The straw is not heavy like the rubber mulch. It stays in place very well during heavy rains. I have not had any "float off".

    How is it in the fall when you are trying to get leaves out of it? It seems to me that it would be better for yards without a lot of trees?

    And one other thing.... if a customer buys this for their yard aren't you cutting yourself out of profits down the road? I get good money to lay pinestraw each and every year.
