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!

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda 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.

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.

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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leogirl730 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.

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!
