What is the advantage to using a pine straw or mulch product?

The key reason is moisture retention.  Mulches act as a barrier from the sunlight that would otherwise evaporate moisture away from your landscape plants.  They provide shade to the root zones of plants while the specific type of mulch will control how much moisture the mulch retains.  Some mulches do not retain as much moisture as others, so your selection of a mulch type needs to accommodate your watering needs.
