    Have any of yall ever used a dye of some kind on pine straw to keep the color longer and maybe save on putting more out. I have a account were the straw is in good shape just losing color with the sun. Just asking if it would be worth it or not

    we use numulch on shredded hardwood from Lesco. It works great and keeps color a lot longer than natural. The only trick is not to spray it on plants, concrete, gaurdrail, etc, it will stain. We also use a green dye on yards that have patches that go dormant, zoysia or forms of bermuda grasses.
