i heard that pine shaving will suck up the nitrogen in the soil. which is not ideal for your veggie or citrus

 

as for blowing away.. when wet.. it's not going anywhere

 

well. if you have wind during the monsoon season then it's something else.. but pretty much anything can be blown away

 

i have 6ft concrete wall around the house.. not a problem with wind
