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

I had purchased the red nature scapes in the past. The colors were vibrant but differed quite a lot from bag to bag. Also, the red color faded from the sun. I bought brown earth grow mulch this year and am very satisfied with the results.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 463 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 2.0 out of 5.0 by JUST PURCHASED The color of the mulch I purchased was mixture of 8 brown bags and 8 red bags. However the brown bags had bucket loads of red in the mulch. The red bags were not red at all. Just also brown. When I went back to the store according to them I have already used the product and not valid for return. NOW, I have a mulch covered garden with NO COLOR!!!! ITS AWFUL. The price is perfect but the quality is poor! The reviews on here are right! May 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Midew Mulch I had to return 16 bags of mulch that I had just bought from the store. I opened one bag and the mulch was full of Mildew and smelled. I checked the other bags by smelling and they smelled like they were full of Mildew too. When I returned the bags one of the associates acted like she was not giving me the refund for the used bag and finally I had to talk to someone higher in the chain and got my refund for all my returned bags. They unloaded the bags right back to the pick up area. Buyer beware!!!!! May 22, 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
