A major reason why pine needles may be the best mulch is because they
tend to be hydrophobic. When it rains, the very top needles get wet but
generally not those farther below. Most of the rain passes through them to
the ground. With all other mulches I have worked with, the ground gets no
moisture until all of the mulch is thoroughly saturated.
