A cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. Since each bag is 2 cubic feet, it takes 13 and 1/2 bags to make one cubic yard of mulch.

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

If they lift their decks up as they pass over it, it would be fine, but if not, the blades likely will catch the bark and throw it.

Answer: 
As with any mower if engaged it will suck the mulch up. If they are not mowing over it you would be fine. I have in my gardens you would pack it down faster driving over it. It is a fine grade suitable for plants but more apt to breakdown quicker.

Answer: 
I wouldn't use it that way. It's too lightweight and will easily get sucked up, chopped up, and spit out by a mower.
I put it in my flowerbeds to help hold moister to my plants, look nice, and keep the weeds down. It's great at all of this but, I wouldn't use it in a path. When my mower gets close to the edge of the flowerbeds, some of the mulch gets sucked in and chopped up.

This mulch can standup to some traffic but looks best when it's set and left undisturbed. Hopefully the mower blade can be turned off as the mower drives over it, otherwise mulch will blow all over he place.

Answer: 
Hello Honeycomb,
As long as the mowers are off as the lawn men move from the front to the back yard the mulch will be fine. It would however be a good idea to have an extra bag on hand. After multiple months of lawn men back and forth on it, not to mention the natural settling of mulch, having an extra bag on hand will allow you to refresh the mulch as needed. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 456 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Extreme Color Variations This is the first time I have utilized mulch on my extensive array of gardens. I choose Scott's due to their superior reputation. I purchased 60 bags. 10 Red and 50 Brown. It takes me 45 minutes roundtrip to my nearest Home Depot, so I made 5 trips with my SUV. While I was making these trips, my sons were spreading the mulch. I was disappointed to see they had spread 2 bags of red mulch that had only a hint of red on them! Worse yet, despite making all the trips to the same Home Depot (East Hanover, NJ), Half of my "brown" mulch was really a shade of RED! I don't see how I could purchase any more without really knowing the color! April 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Different Mulch in same SKU Same SKU, different mulch among bags taken from same skid at store. Disappointed with Scotts and HD for not checking quality. Shredded mulch vs pine chip mulch. The picture shows the difference. Even the dog knows which is the correct one. Will be re-thinking my mulch purchases at HD next time. May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Second year I have purchased this product. The bark in bags is easy for me to handle. The size is good and lasted very well over the winter. I added more to my flower beds this spring for a better barrier against weeds and to conserve moisture. Only a few too large pieces and that seemed to be only one bag. I really like this brand and watch for Home Depot's sale each spring. April 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ok Cheap Mulch I bought 37 bags of the brown mulch and each bag was totally different. The quality of the mulch shredding differ from bag to bag. Some bags had very course shavings and some had fine shavings. Had to empty into a pile and mix together to get a uniform consistency. April 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by big chunks bought 15 bags along with 10 vigoro brand, Scott's has bigger peices than vigoro so I like vigoro. I did use Scott's last year too and color still looks good. both are fine..wait for $2 a bag though. April 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Moldy and manure like smell I bought this mulch because of the Scotts name. I will never buy it again. It was moldy and stinks like manure. I have never had to spray something in my yard to kill an odor after spreading the mulch. I'll definitely use the other no name brand that didn't have mold or a stenchy smell. Poor product. May 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't Hold It's Color I bought 16 bags of this mulch and spread it in all my flower beds. It rained overnight and the next day when I went to look at my flower beds the mulch had lost all it's brown color. Really! Instead of the color lasting 1 year it lasted 1 day. Will not buy this mulch again! May 13, 2016
