Straw blowing provides a great covering to protect newly seeded grass or newly disturbed soil. The straw shields the surface from drying effects of the wind and holds heat in during the cool days of early spring or fall weather. It also keeps soil cool during the hot days of summer.
Shaking straw by hand is hard, dirty work, and it is slow and inefficient. RSI, Inc. has a straw blower which gets the job done 10 times faster and will provide the same results using 20% less straw!
