Answer: 
I have found that once I started to read the instructions on the bag for Earth Gro Brown that the color lasted longer. The bag instructions states" Turn mulch over after about 4-5 months to get a consistant color. Also do not apply mulch right before a rain 24-48 hours.
I love this product. I am sorry to hear that my Home Depot in 2016 will not be carrying Nature Scapes any longer

Answer: 
I would think it would matter how deep you intend to spread the 10 cubic yards of dirt. If it were six inches deep, your 270 cubic feet of dirt would cover an area of 540 sq. ft. If you put mulch three inches deep on it, you would cover 4 sq. ft. of the dirt with 1 cubic foot of mulch; hence you'd need 67.5 bags of 2 cubic ft.mulch.

Hello.
Each bag yields 2 cubit feet, there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard, so 10 cubic yards needs 270 cubic feet. Divide that by 2 and you need 135 bags of this mulch.

Answer: 
Forget about the volume of dirt. Measure the spot you want to cover, in feet.
If it is not exactly a rectangle, just get it as close as you can.
For example if the spot is about 20 feet long, and 10 feet wide, then multiply 10 x 20 which is 200 square feet of area.
Now you have to decide how thick you want the mulch: 2 inches, 3 inches, or 4 inches. Usually it's about 3 inches to keep the weeds

Forget about the volume of dirt. Measure the spot you want to cover, in feet.
If it is not exactly a rectangle, just get it as close as you can.
For example if the spot is about 20 feet long, and 10 feet wide, then multiply 10 x 20 which is 200 square feet of area.
Now you have to decide how thick you want the mulch: 2 inches, 3 inches, or 4 inches. Usually it's about 3 inches to keep the weeds out.
So take the area, in this example it's 200 sq ft. and divide it by one of the following:
1- for 2 inches of mulch, divide by 12,
2- for 3 inches of mulch, divide by 8,
3- for 4 inches of mulch, divide by 6.
In this example, for a 3 inch thick covering of mulch, you would divide 200 by 8 to get 25. That's the number of bags of mulch, 25 bags.
If the area is not a rectangle, maybe it's a circle or a curved area, then your calculation is very approximate. Don't worry about it though, since you won't be able to get the mulch spread exactly at the thickness you want everywhere. You can always adjust it afterward, by getting more mulch or making it a little thicker.

2 cu. ft. Brown Mulch is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 581.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Something went wrong this year After using this product for several years without issues. This year has been a nightmare. I bought 50 bags for my yard and I spread it about a month ago. Now wherever I spread this mulch I have some plants growing. Seems it came with some seeds that sprouted perfectly in my yard. At the beginning I thought it was some seeds from a nearby garden, but none of my neighbors have the problem but me. So clearly it came with the mulch. I have spent hours trying to get rid of those but I have at least 20 more hours of work to get rid of all. Next time I am changing the brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very little color loss after one year I used this mulch to cover a large portion of my back yard mainly to control weeds. I did use a high quality weed barrier fabric underneath. After the mulch was down for a full year, I added 10 more bags to fill in some thin areas. I could not even tell what was new and what was a year old after I applied the new bags. This mulch is a good buy at the regular price. Usually twice a year, Home Depot has this mulch on sale for $2.00 per bag. That's when a good buy becomes a great buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Best and the Worst. I read many reviews on this mulch. One said it was great. One said it was awful. Both told the truth. I bought 30 bags today and used them all. I opened the pallet and loaded the thirty bags myself. I would have two or three bags of absolutely great mulch, then a bag or two with odd color or trash in it. Not real bad, but not good. One bag had a rock in it bigger than my fist. I almost fell over when it came out. How did such a big rock get through all that machinery.? The good bags were really good and there were enough good bags to hide the less than desirable ones. For the price, yes, but for SCOTTS, really sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from earth grow brown mulch I bought 35 bags of this product, just to do my front bed. Within 1 week it had turned black and became very brittle. Had bought before with no problem. I think they are in such demand that they have lost quality control on their brand. I will never buy this product again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is shredded heavy mulch Spent the weekend putting down about 30 bags of this Scott's Brown Mulch. I immediately noticed the quality and smell of the product is much different from last time. The smell almost reminds me of treated lumber that is very old, like railroad trestles. Then I looked at closer and thought maybe it was even old Cedar shake shingles mixed in too? Anyways not the quality I was hoping for or expecting that I had with this product in the past. It is also very difficult to spread evenly with a rake. I ended up walking all over it and using the flat side of shovel to make it more even. Even then it still looks uneven in spots. Well better luck next time I guess. For $60 for 30 bags it is ok, but wouldn't recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep it dry for 24 hours and you will be very satisfied I read these reviews before made mulch purchase. Saw warning that mulch cannot get wet for 24 hours after installation or color will rinse off. Checked weather forecast: no rain. Installed a few bags before nightfall. Next day checked forecast: no rain. Installed many more bags. SURPRISE: Freak thunderstorm that night. Next day the less than one day old spread was 30% faded BUT the two day old spread was still a deep brown. Simple fix: sprinkle thin, new layer over faded mulch and all matches again. The point is: keep the mulch dry for 24 hours and it will perform perfectly. NOTE TO SCOTTS: There is no "keep this dry for 24 hours after installation" warning on any of the 80 bags I purchased. Add this information and you will have much less complaints.
