Questions & Answers

Does the color stay black or how quickly does it fade

Asked by: tweedie
Ours is still black. It says NOT to get ANY water on it for 24 hours. We followed those instructions and it's still black and it's been 2 months. It gets wet everyday from sprinklers so follow the rules and you will have a better result. I live in Southern Oregon.

I need 1 1/2 yards of mulch. How many bags shoule I purchase?

Asked by: Geeg
Someone saying 21 bags. It is only true if you laying down 1 ft depth of mulch in your yard. If you plan to do only 4" depth then it is one third of 21 bags = 7 bags. 4" is one third of 1ft. Hope it helps.

Obviously this mulch has come along way because I am very pleased with the quality. I was concerned with all the previous reviews and then realized the most popular review was years ago. I ordered 60 bags when it was on sale for 5 for $10 and I did not have any debris or strange objects in the bags. The color looks great as of now - it has only been a week. I definitely recommend for smaller jobs or larger jobs when on sale. It's tough to justify the price when it is not on sale because it ends up cheaper having it professionally delivered if you need more than 2 yards. Hope this helps! :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from white mold/fungus growth At first glance, this looked like a good product. My impression of Scotts products have always been good, but this damages their reputation in my opinion. I bought 20 bags from my local HD store. 7 of the bags contained heavy mold/fungus growth. Several additional bags were found to have some strands of white residue, which really took away from the nice black color. I couldn't tell if that was also fungus/mold, as these easily wiped off when i rubbed the pieces of mulch together with my fingers (dont worry, i definetely wore gloves). I will be calling Scotts customer service, as I am not satisfied. Hard to return opened bags of mulch. Word of advice - inspect the bags when you buy them at the store. Check to nake sure there are no signs of foreign growth.

Dear prospective buyers of this product, I purchased 15 bags of this product from my local HD store in Maryland. As you can see it's advertised "as Black Mulch” and further stating: "Now with 10% more Color Guaranteed" Because of Scott's cleaver product name "Earthgro" and it's packaging, I was lead to believe that each bag contained "shredded wood" After purchasing this product, I left to go out of town for the w/e leaving my son and one of his buddies put it down. Upon returning 2 days later, I was shocked at what I saw, it consisted of PINE BARK, large pieces of STICKS, and small CHUNKS of wood. It had very little BLACKNESS to it!! If you value your hard earned money. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

I bought 40 Bags of this, upon loading I thought a lot of the bags were heavier than normal. Now a few weeks after puting out the mulch & a little rain I have found small chunks of CONCRETE!. It looks like the chunks are ground up highway. I am so upset, now I'll be spending days on my hands and knees removing this! THERE is SO much CONCRETE. I must contact Home depot to get this resolved!

Scotts Earthgro Black Mulch is an excellent background for our spring flowers. The contrast to the green grass is an added bonus. I particularly like the texture and size of the chips in the mulch. We used it last year as well, and the color had great staying quality. Attached is a picture of our yard from the front door.

Each spring I pick up a few bags and add it to areas that are beginning to look faded and/or messy. The black color contrasts nicely with the vegetation.

It is not a good product to use, I bought 8 bags for my girlfriend to do her yard . I didn't finish on the same day so I went back the next day to complete the bed. I put the mulch down it was black and beautiful, but the mulch I put down the day prior was grayish. Home Depot put it on sale so I said let me look at the reviews, they were mostly low. So I decide to call the company to inquire about the 12 month guarantee deal. It is bull!!! the rep D would not give me her name after she just took me through the ringer inquiring about a mulch guarantee. The 1st thing they ask is for the barcode from the bag, who keeps the barcode from trash, but she states that is on the bag. Then the next proof of purchase could be a receipt. Thank you. She goes on to ask the temperature and about if it rained within 24 hours. I stated to her I water the plants. Then she says I should not have watered it and it can't rain within 24 hours because the color has to set, but that's not on the bag and it is considered an act of nature if it rains and it is not to be used professionally and since I did a job for my friend that would also void the guarantee. Ha HA. Now before I can go any further I must rake the mulch over to blend the at the time day old watered mulch with the new mulch to see if I like it. Then call back. I just wanted to see if they stood behind their product and they don't!!!!! This is a marketing gimmick. All that stuff should be on the bag. I was fooled because I thought that Scotts was a reputable company and the value of the product matched the quality. DON'T BE FOOLED.

I have used this mulch multiple times on my customers’ yards after doing either garden maintenance or during tree or shrub planting. The quality is very good, but if you need more than 1 yard of mulch this product isn't economical Pros: *If you get it on sale for 5 for $10, it’s a good deal *Keeps its color for awhile *Keeps the weeds down *Nice color and smell Cons: *If you pay full price, it just isn't a good deal unless you only have a small area to cover. I mean, since it’s either somebody's ground up tree or lumberyard byproducts, it doesn’t need to cost over $3.50 per bag.
