Open to the public? No


USDA Hardiness Zone: 

Extension Demonstration Garden? No

Approximate year the garden/landscape was established: Unknown.

What to look for: Just a few shade plants finish a spot under a low-growing maple tree along a stone and gravel pathway.   As the mulch breaks down it provides valuable nutrients to the soil.  Mulches are an important tool in managing a healthy landscape. 

Horticulture: Pine straw is used as a mulch and it helps not only to regulate soil temperature, and keep the soil moist longer it also suppresses weed growth.
