    Lowe's carries both short needle and long needle pine straw. To get your own, find a pine forest and rake but beware of insects. Remember this is an acid-producing mulch that only acid-loving plants will thrive in like camelias, azaleas, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, fuschias, holly trees.

    We rakes our own at the local park. It's free. We called to make sure it was okay first.

    I would call the city parks commissioner if it were me. They have pine needles to rake, if that is what you mean.

    Our local Ace Hardware stores also sell them in case Lowe's is out.

    Be sure to wear gloves. Some small needles, like cedar, will be like splinters that are hard to see.
