How many bags of 2 cu ft mulch needed for 10 cubic yards or dirt?

Asked by: Confused
It is absolutely amazing that NO ONE asked the question: Do you want to mix the mulch with the 10 cu. yds. of soil. The question' as state, leans more to the mixing of the mulch and the soil. They all jumped to the assumption that the person was taking about spreading it over flat dirt. How thin was the dirt to be spread? Their figuring left the dirt spread out at a height of one foot. Did Confused really mean 10 sq. feet of flat ground, I think so; I would have to ask Confused a few more questions about what they wanted to do . America is in trouble with assumers and those that jump to conclusions.

Which is the better mulch and will hold color longer: the nature scapes mulch or the earth grow mulch?

Asked by: Dave
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

2 cu. ft. Brown Mulch is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1140.

While spreading the first 15 or so bags we tried to ignore the junk that was in the bags along with the "mulch". There was pieces of red and blue plastic, all sorts of odd shaped big pieces of wood, etc. It wasn't until the last 8 bags when we really started to see some junk. There was paper, plastic, Tylenol wrapper, blue yarn and most horrifying of all was a Lifestyle condom wrapper! I called Scotts to complain but aside from giving them the bar code so they could "look into it", there wasn't much they could do for me. Shame on you Scotts! I buy your products because they are supposed to be quality. Where are you sourcing this "wood" from....the city dump?

I waited to see how long the "color" would last and hold in my flower beds prior to writing a review- as most photos shown are immediately after application, or within the first fews days. The size of the mulch varies from bark size- to actual fine grade mulch. (As shown in photos) Not that big of a deal to me, but someone wanting actual 'mulch'- you may be better off finding a different brand. 1/2 if my bags contained red bark- not a big deal to me- may be a deal breaker for others. Sizes varied from mulch( pencil width sizes), to 5-7 inch bark. As far as color, it was great for about 1.5 weeks. We have had 4 minor rain days since application. The average temps have been 70-85 here. I can only imagine when it gets to the 90s+ this summer how much the bark will 'bleach' or lose more color. Again not a huge deal, but I bought it with the intent to have a nice rich brown color for at least the summer- and where still in spring and now I have gray/brown mulch. If your okay with the color dissipating- then this mulch will work- but for the extra money I would expect a longer color hold time. For the cost of regular cedar mulch, this is more expensive. I should of chosen Cedar with pest control benefits for less cost. Photos are of the flower bed facing East- this bed gets morning sun- and covered by noon-1PM. Not exposed to the sun during peak hours, so color shouldn't have faded so quickly.

I Purchase 90 bags of Scotts Earthgro Brown for $3.33 a bag (Pd $299.70 + tax) and had it delivered for $65.00 on June 22, 2015. I actually went to purchase this a week or so sooner because it was on sale then but was told by the garden shop at The Home Depot that they were out of it and would not be getting any more in this season. I happened to be in The Home Depot for another reason and noticed they got new shipments of this in. I told the sales person in the New Milford Home Depot that I was just here and I was told the above and asked if they would honor the sales price and was told no. After a month or so the mulch started turning white with some type of mold which I have never seen before. When I asked The Home depot if anyone else that had purchased this noticed this in their mulch they told me nobody had reported it to them and just shrugged saying they had no idea what that was. That was just the beginning of a nightmare...The next summer season came and we were out gardening and noticed the front of our house was covered with tiny black dots. They were all over the siding, windows, screens all the way up to the gutters. We were being attacked by ARTILLERY FUNGUS that was growing on the Scotts Earthgro mulch (see picture). AND IT DOSE NOT COME OFF! This fungus can shoot anywear from a few feet to 20 to 40 feet towards anything lite of color. We had to look this up on our computer because we have never seen or ever heard of this stuff and we have lived in this house for 20 years and have never had this happen! It was even all over a white fence we had around our garden. Unless you see it and get it off right away it will not come off. We are in the process of having our house painted because they had to sand these 1,000's and 1,000's of black dots off our siding and we can't get them off our window frames and screens which we will have to live with. We also had to remove all that Scotts Earthgro mulch off all our gardens before it caused more damage and so when they finish painting our home it won't get all over our new paint. This is the first time we have ever used a bagged mulch. We were drawn in by the color guarantee. I would not recomend this product. This has been a very expensive lesson.

I purchased 13 bags, all my car would hold and specifically asked how long the sale would last. I returned the next day and was told the sale was over. Because I put up a stink, they 'graciously' gave it to me for the sale price. 2. Just like another consumer, after laying down 20 bags, the last three were nothing but moldy pieces. Not happy. I don't care if this item was 50 cents I expect a usable product. Still need another six bags and it won't be this brand. I did recommend because life is a cr ap shoot and three bags out of 23 is a small percentage .

I have used this mulch multiple times on my customers’ yards after doing either garden maintenance or during tree or shrub planting. The quality is very good, but if you need more than 1 yard of mulch this product isn't economical Pros: *If you get it on sale for 5 for $10, it’s a good deal *Keeps its color for awhile *Keeps the weeds down *Nice color and smell Cons: *If you pay full price, it just isn't a good deal unless you only have a small area to cover. I mean, since it’s either somebody's ground up tree or lumberyard byproducts, it doesn’t need to cost over $3.50 per bag.

I bought many bags of Scotts Earthgro "BROWN MULCH". Some bags contained dark brown mulch, some light brown mulch, some dark gray mulch, some light gray mulch and some with no color at all. The bags of mulch containing no color were full of some type of fungus or mold. I am extremely disappointed with this mulch and with Scotts, a company that in the past marketed quality products. I would have rated this "no stars" if possible. It seems that Scotts has become just another company that cares little to nothing about producing quality products. I will never again purchase anything marketed by Scotts. If you want quality mulch this product is not for you. If you want mulch that is a consistent color from bag to bag this product is not for you. If you want mulch that does not contain fungus or mold this product is not for you. My suggestion is for everyone to run fast and far when you see this mulch.

Having purchased close to 50 bags of this mulch, I am very disappointed with the quality of this product and wish I had stuck to the "Premium" brand I normally buy at Lowe's. When I purchased the mulch at the store and made numerous trips, it was frustrating that the store had left all of the bags to get soaked in the rain doubling the weight and making it harder to spread. Worse, every single bag when I opened them had INSECTS fly out that are slowly taking over the yard. I don't know if they were fungus gnats or something else but you shouldn't open a bag of mulch and have a swarm of insects fly out. I buy a lot of Scott's products and it is sad to see your name on such a flawed product.

The first 5 bags were fine but the last 8 bags were filled with this white, clumpy mold!! When I finished throwing out all of the moldy mulch, I didn't have enough left to finish my yard project!!
