This is achieved by keeping the sun from penetrating through the needles to the soil underneath, while still allowing air and moisture to pass freely.
Pine straw helps prevent soil compaction and erosion as well as improving the structure of the soil as it decays. Pine straw naturally releases nitrogen into the soil as it breaks down.
Pine straw can drastically reduce the erosion of soil on sloped areas that receive large amounts of rain or have frequent irrigation. Pine straw needles, when spread, interlock together and form a tight bond that will keep them in place and can even withstand high winds.
Pine straw can be used to protect planted flowers and shrubs from harsh winter temperatures. It acts as an insulator of tender roots from temperature extremes, keeping the soil warm in the winter, and cool during the summer.
Pine straw needles fall to the ground naturally and are hand baled and never require the cutting down or grinding of any trees.
