Does the color stay black or how quickly does it fade

Asked by: tweedie
I bought 40 bags last spring and they stayed black all year. I just put a light topping down this spring to freshen up the look.

2 cu. ft. Black Mulch is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 565.

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.

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.

This is the worst mulch we have ever had. The color is awful. Is is not black. It is dark brown with a little black mixed in. The mulch itself is very coarse. we pulled out wood pieces of 6-8 inches in length and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. We thought about taking it back but we didn't feel like loading a truck load back on the truck. I would not recommend this at all.

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! :)

I purchased 25 bags of this last season, and nearly all of the bags contained significant amounts of shredded trash (including glass!). Many also contained a white substance that does not wash off... I think it's some kind of mold or fungus. Never buying this again.

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.

It rained on Monday after the product had been down about 12 hours. I now have gray mulch. I spent my weekend replanting and mulching this bed and it looked great. It now looks terrible. I was concerned with the amount of black coming off on my hands. Note: wear gloves. My concern was warranted. This black does not stay on product. Also, there were too many big pieces of wood for my liking. Would not buy this again. I would not give this product one star but I don't have that option.
