Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This mulch looks great and keeps the soil underneath moist! Scotts mulch is the only mulch I buy. It's color lasts much longer than the other brands that I've tried. It keeps the soil moist so the shrubs and flowers can stay healthy and continually look amazing. Always get compliments on how neat the property looks... April 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Black? not really I am very disappointed with Scotts Earthgro black mulch. I first purchased about 10-12 bags and it was ok. I needed some more so I went back for 6 bags a few days later and it was not black. Either they did not put enough dye but the color was more like brown and also big (about 8 to 10 inches) pieces not even dyed. Poor dye job. It took pictures because it was clear that it was not done properly. Very disappointed with Scotts. May 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A little goes a LONG way and makes a dramatic difference! See my pics! Never bought this so I didn't know how far one bag would go.... one goes a LONG way, so keep that in mind! Also, ladies (and seniors!) one of these bags are VERY HEAVY! Get some help if you need it. I am pretty strong and I had to get help to carry these. This color is beautiful and I love it. I have had no bleeding issues yet BUT for the lower decks/beds I will use the black lava rock so it doesn't flood and get in the pool. Also, my pink gloves were black after putting this down. I will be buying a LOT more of this. March 22, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 12 Hour Advantage Waste of Time & Money Massachusetts resident here, warning shoppers from the popular home store to please avoid the glamor sales for this junk, and spend more money on Nature Scapes which actual stays Black all summer, Vs this junk which only lasted 12 hours. Spending my Saturday spreading out 30 bags of "Color Advantage" it actually turned grey/natural wood color over night. I was roped in when they had the sale for " 5 for $10" and I am completely Disgusted! May 19, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by scotts black mulch Bought 15 bags 1 day and 20 bags the next week. The first 15 were fine with no problems. The second purchus had mold in 6 of the bags. Found a big stump in 1 bag and electrical wire in another. We will see how it holds its color April 16, 2014
