I've used this mulch for a few years now but tried more expensive (and cheaper) brands. This and the more expensive brands are going to last and keep a nice color for about a good year. I got about 15 bags during the Spring Black Friday Sale which HD tends to have every year. I like the look of fresh mulch every Spring and for the price, laying new mulch is one of the cheapest landscaping projects you can do.
Pros: Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality
The mulch was very easy to spread right from the bag.Just open bag, and pour it where you wanted it.Do a little raking to level it, and instant beauty. I'll never go back to buying mulch loose by the truck load. We've received so many complements on Hosta Garden.
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality
Laid down 13 bags of this mulch at one of my investment and I am happy with the results. The mulch has a nice color and is looks nice. My only issue is that in every bag I had at least one large hard clump which was hard to break apart. I think this may have been due to the fact it is still early in the season and Home Depot had the mulch stored out in the freezing cold.
I have bought all kinds of mulch, bark, etc.but this Earth Gro brand is by far the best in my opinion. I usually buy the red, but the dye comes off all over hands and gloves, so thought I would go with the brown this year. I am so glad I did! Beautiful dark brown, nice small pieces, very clean( no junk mixed in it) and my flower beds look so rich and beautiful now. The price was fantastic too!! Was in the ad, but ended up being more of a sale at our local store. Bought extra bags to freshen up throughout the year too. Added some of the sale mums while I was at it too---
Pros: Vibrant Color, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality

Terrible, loaded with trash and plastic
PostedMay 27, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought 20 bags, spent two hours picking out plastic, Styrofoam and metal pieces out of the mulch!!!
Have purchased more than 50 bags of this mulch. Found quality about 85-90% consistent..have found large branches among the mulch and some which produced weed growth just where that bag of mulch had been spread. Color retention over the season remains to be seen but generally quite pleased with this and will continue to use.
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality, colors selections offered
I have been buying this product for over 8 years, it transformed my back yard. If used properly it will not only beautify your yard, but reduce your weed and grass growth around your plants. I usually weed about every three months, but its not much due to this mulch and a weed barrier. Just bought 10 more bags today for $20. Normal Price is $5.97 for a 2 cf bag. Saved $40. bucks Comes in three colors, but I prefer the brown. Have used other mulch products before and others fly all over my yard on windy rainy days. This Scotts product is a denser, maybe heavier product, cant beat it!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality
The first 103 bags of this mulch were almost entirely pine bark with coarsely shredded material. The last 17 used to finish a front view portion of my job were a finely shredded wood material. Although the color is the same, the appearance is contrasting instead of uniform, making for an unsatisfactory job appearance. Returning that many bags for exchange is impractical.
We have purchased about 50 bags of this mulch over the past 3 months. Every bag is loaded with trash - that's visible to the eye after it's spread - black plastic bags, pieces of food containers, metal pieces, hard plastic, etc. Will never buy again. Very disappointing purchase and even more so, after it's spread across the front and back yard.
I purchased this product after a recommendation from Home Depot and I trusted them to know what they are talking about. I used 95 bags for my front and back yard. The product is junk after only 10 or 12 weeks the color is all faded out and it looks terrible. The cheaper brand I purchased last year lasted way longer then this product and even when the less expensive product started to fade it still looked better then my yard looks now. Save your money and buy anything cheaper then this stuff it will be better then this poor product.
When took the product out of the color was vibrant brown. Little after 5 days the color settled to little darker brown. Over all I liked the consistency of color over 105 bags I purchased. Hope Scott's 12 month guarantee on the color holds true.
Pros: Vibrant Color, Strong, Stylish, Great Quality
I bought 25 bags of this mulch and it was great however when I decided to do another area in my yard I went back to get 6 more bags and same bags on the outside only this second mulch was completely different from the first batch. Different color and with practically no bark at all ( which the first was full off) just a soft material . so different
I had used this this from Scott's a few years ago. I picked up 25 bags and spread it. I was quite happy with the mulch- nicely shredded, not a lot of large bark pieces or chips. Then 2 days later went back to the same Home Depot, to get another 25 bags- Was NOT HAPPY. the first 4 were as described above, nicely shredded. After that every other bag was large chucks chips and very little shredded material- All OFF the SAME pallet. I would have thought that Scott's, being a name brand, would have better quality control- Consistency between bags was awful. I don't blame Home Depot, not their fault. And I did use the mulch in different areas. Let's face it, I wasn't loading 25 bags back on the truck to return them. * Just be cautious of what you're actually buying if, like me, you like the mulch to look the same.
This was my second order on the bark mulch. This order was for 40 bags my first pick up was for 20 bags.
But when I got the bags home many of the bags were ripped and the inside mulch was lumped a lot. It took a lot of hard work breaking up the larges lumps. It was like frozen or something that makes it to lump up. My first 20 bags I picked up did not have this problem but the next 40 bags did have this problem, bags I did not pick out but was ready when I went to the store for pick up. Not a happy camper at all. As this made a lot of extra work for me along with spreading the bark mulch.
Come on people....this is mulch we are talking about...not high quality diamonds. Purchased and put down 80 bags of this much at $2.00 per bag...great deal and I am totally satisfied with the purchase. Have purchased lawn center mulch in the past and ended up with fungi growing for years. Have finally cleared all of that out and very happy with this mulch.

It's mulch. It's brown. And it looks great! We didn't need enough to justify going to a garden center paying for delivery etc. So when this stuff was on sale 5 for $10 we picked some up. The product is great! The bags aren't that heavy, unless soaking wet and it went down easy and my gardens look 1,000 time better. No running of color. Would highly recommend!
