Pros and cons of using pine straw for mulch
I am considering using pine straw around the strawberry plants I am putting out. I wanted to keep the fruit off the dirt and to help with weed control.
I do not normally use pine straw around any of my vegetables. I add compost occasionally during the growing
season and weeds don't seem to be a major problem in my raised beds.
My main concern was if pine straw had any major benefits or caused any problems.
