Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeoinGA Good product at good price
I recently reseeded my lawn and typically use a light covering of pine straw to help maintain the soil dampness and protect the germinating seed. I also needed some pine straw for several beds around the house. After reading some of the HD reviews on its Pine Straw I was reluctant, but needed 30 bales and the price was good so I decided to check it out for myself. The color and quality of the straw is good. There were a few pieces of sticks here and there, but nothing rotten or moldy. Over the years I've purchased and spread a lot of pine straw, and this product was as good as any pine straw I've ever bought. Not sure how it could be any better and still be "pine straw". I rated the product "Excellent".
I've included some pictures, so you can judge for yourself.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CoastalNC A bad deal
I bought 15 bales of this so-called pine straw. Every bale was full of sticks, pine cones, moldy grass, and chunks of dirt. At best, 75% of each bale had usable pine straw. Because of the waste, I ended up paying more than if I had bought premium pine straw at $5.00 a bale and it took much longer to spread as I had to pick up the sticks and other waste.

I purchased this pine straw from the Garner, NC Home Depot and it is nearly 1/2 leaves, sticks and pine straw that has already broken down into 1" shreds.

Pine straw was wet inside the bale, supplier obviously baled the needles while wet. On top of that, the pine straw had a lot of trash in the bale - large pine cones, limbs, etc.
Do not buy this pine straw at the Fuquay-Varina store - bad, bad, bad

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rikikitty Skimpy sized bale
One bale hardly covered 3 square feet. Half the size of a standard bale for the same cost. Will not buy from Home Depot in future

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dscribner Seeds growing in my straw mulch
I bought straw mulch for 9.99 and expected pretty decent stuff. Put it in my garden and there is grass or something growing EVERYWHERE in it. I know it is the straw because I didn't put it in the walkways and there is nothing growing there. Not only a total waste of money but now I have twice as much work to do. Only gave this one star because it is required!! I would never tell anyone to buy this at Home Depot

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FLGIRL1 Great Pine Straw
After reading other reviews, I was concerned how the quality would be. I was pleasantly surprised there was no junk mixed in with the pine straw.
