Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by glennw Best Colored Mulch for the Money
I use this mulch everywhere in my yard. I always use black because the color slowly degrades to a natural looking dark gray. The problem with seeking a mulch that never discolors is that you're asking for trouble with harsh chemical dyes. Such dyes can be harmful to your plants, not to mention using it around your vegetable garden. I like the fact that Scotts uses natural plant based dyes, and never uses construction based wood that can often contain toxic chemicals like copper arsenate, lead, and other nasty things. I think it's the right balance between appearance, quality, and cost.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RJ21702 Color rinsed off after 2 hours
I'm so disappointed. We have put down 75 bags of this black mulch and the color rinsed off 2 hours later. It is now a mixture of black, brown, and blonde colored mulch. I have another 45 bags which I will return to the store where purchased. I have always used Scott's products and participate in their lawn care program. Most frustrating is not only the money spent but the time and effort expended on this project.

Stuff is junk!! Found carpet tack strip nails in my mix and it is all clumped together. Even after raking it and trying to flatten it out it clumps back together. Will never buy again! I work at home depot and will not recommend this to my customers anymore. Use a truck or trailer and go to the local landscape place and get a couple scoops of real hardwood black mulch. Photo attached shows difference. The lighter chunkier stuff is the scotts.

Fine consistent texture with no wood chunks or bark. Very easy to distribute with no clumping. I've got a 120 foot by 50 foot property with a house in the middle, and I've gone through 24 bags on the raised flower beds around the house and back yard. My plants love it and the neighbors comment very favorably. Please maintain this level of quality.

I bought 15 bags while it was on sell and put it out in the flower beds The following week I picked up another 15 bags and when I went to fill it in you can see how much the mulch faded in 1 week. The bag says it has a 12 month color guarantee. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rockstone Ants in 4 out of 5 bags
I have been using this product for the last couple of years and just filling in as needed. The color does face but basically remains black. This year however I was really shocked at the number of large ants in these bags. I felt like I was adding another problem as I put them mulch down. I don't know if this is controllable or not but I have not had this issue in the past. I immediately put down some insecticide because a lot of this was right next to my house. So really not only could there potential problems with the ants but it cost me more to try and prevent any problems.
