Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Momofthree Dont be fooled by the price, you get what you pay for plus some.
I can not even express how dissatisfied I am with this product. I bought about 20 bags of the red mulch during a sale for what I thought was a steal. My first disappointment came when I found very distinct variation in the color. I had to spend extra time spending the bags to help disguise the colors difference. Once I accomplished that my flower bed looked great for about 2 to 3 weeks. Then I started to notice a large amount of catipillar type bugs eating my flowers and leafs right to the stem. I have spent my mornings and evenings smooshing these bugs. This Multch has destroyed years of work in less than one month. I have about 4 different flower beds, 2 with Scotts red mulch and 2 without any mulch. My 2 flowers begs without the mulch are catipillar free. DO NOT use this product around flowers unless you do don't want your flowers anymore.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LITTLEJOHN EVERY FALL I LINE ALL MY BEDS WITH RED MULCH,I MADE THE PURCHASE ONLINE AND HAD MY GARDENER PICK IT UP FOR ME.HE PUT THE MULCH IN THE BEDS WHERE HE ALWAYS DOES AND FIGURED I CHANGED THE COLOR.
WHEN I GOT HOME AND SAW THE (BROWN)MULCH I WAS ROCKED.IT WAS ALREADY DOWN SO THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO ABOUT IT.AT FIRST HE FELT THE COLOR WAS DUE TO IT BEING MOIST,BUT AFTER THE SUN BAKED IT , STILL BROWN.I THOUGHT ABOUT COMPLAINING BUT WHAT'S THE USE.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO ANSWER FINE IF NOT PLEASE LET THE VENDOR KNOW IT'S BROWN AND IT WILL NEVER BE RED.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FLINTSTONE OUTSTANDING Mulch!!
I purchased 70 bags of Scott's Earthgro Red Mulch. And 70 bags of Vigoro's Red Mulch. When I arrived at Home Depot to pickup all the bags, I realized that they are TOTALLY different types of mulch. Scott's Earthgro is actually REAL looking mulch. And Vigoro's mulch is SHREDDED! It almost looks like red sand. So needless to say, I ended up returning to customer service. And getting a refund for the Vigoro. I then purchased an additional 70 bags of the Earthgro mulch. If you want REALISTIC looking mulch, stick with Scott's Earthgro!

Product is red mulch. Been using it for years, buying dozens of bags when they have $2 per bag sale. This year we're going an unwelcome surprise... Extra stinky mushrooms grow out of it!

I purchased 50 bags of Red. The Home Depot was very helpful in pulling the bags and loading into my truck. The offered to load a pallet and this was to much so they hand stacked. The product was unloaded and installed at my house and while it looked okay dropping the bags around the house the much doesn't match. Some product looks like ripped up wood products, some looks like chipped trees and some looks like chipped tree bark. The kids that I paid did not really pay attention to the differences in the product but it looks bad. As seen in the pictures there is variability in the colors of red as well.

Excellent! I used my Mulch purchase as the covering for my Fall decoration display and will use it for my Christmas display as well. I will also use it to cover other areas of my yard that has no grass. It really makes the yard looks well maintained.

Bought 10 bags of the mulch while on sale to finish a project. Mulch looked great for the first 3 weeks, now I have scores of flesh colored brownish mushrooms and white mold growing. Not at all happy with new mushroom fungus look. I am very disappointed.
