Want to make your yard look like the Ritz-Carlton? Here is a little tip that will make your friends wonder why their pinestraw doesn’t look as good. When applying your pinestraw, spread about 8 inches of pinestraw onto the grass or concrete, which ever borders your beds. Come back with a blower and very lightly blow the pinestraw off the grass or concrete back towards the bed which will cause the pinestraw to tuck its-self into place making a perfect border line of fluffy pinestraw. This does take time and patience, and if you don’t have a blower you can always use a hard rake and push the straw into place.
