How Much Straw To Use
I'm trying to figure out how much straw I'll need for mulching my new lawn after seeding. The guys at the local garden supply shop said it should be very lightly applied. Online research suggests that 1 bale of straw will cover 1000-2000 sq ft "lightly". Unforunately, it doesn't really say what size of bale that pertains to. The bales I have available to me are the standard 15"x18"x30" size. Does 1 bale per 1000-2000 sq ft seem right?
