Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1111 Scotts red mulch
I have always liked Scotts products, but this stuff is junk The part that was red was barely red, and half of it was white and looked mildued. It would have looked better if I threw the mulch away and put the bags down!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Differing Quality of Mulch
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freddy First time mulching, turned out great!(i think)
I saw the price Home Depot had on this stuff and it seemed a good time to get our backyard some much needed TLC. The color is great! Doesnt look too crazy but a lot more interesting than boring old brown. WIll be back to buy some more while the price is right.
The lady at the Roseburg store Garden Center was extremely helpful and pleasant.

After reading some of the reviews which my gut told me not to purchase, but I went ahead and bought 90 bags for spring gardening. I thought those could have been bad batches and the problems fixed in production so future batches/lots would have been corrected. Price was great but again, you get what you pay for. I feel very disappointed because as you see in the picture the red mulch looks great (it is a deep red color) while it is wet inside the bag. After distributing on our yard you can see from the picture that red looks more like brown after 24 hrs. there is a big discoloration difference. Wow did not expect that from Scott, I expected more quality control and a better product. Bag says 12 months guarantee for color, Which one the red or the brownish one i got after 24hrs? I do not blame Home Depot for this, but if I was the procurement manager for Home Depot with the Scottt account, I re-consider.

I purchased seven bags yesterday at Home Depot. I've purchased other brands of red mulch there before and never had a problem. I brought them home, emptied the bags around a tree area and started spreading it out. To my surprise, it appears most of the mulch was not colored or colored or mixed during the coloring process.
The colors I say ranged from gray to brown to dark red. I thought of Scotts as a company the provided high quality products. I guess I was wrong. In my business, you are judged every day on quality and quality control. It appears there was none here.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed The color of the mulch varies by bag
For the very first time, I am highly disappointed in this product. I have purchased red mulch from Home depot for many years and red mulch was truly red mulch with consistent colors in all the bags (not much to ask for, right?).. From the reviews, I understand that I'm not the only one that has experienced poor quality control. Each bag has a different variation of color which is not aesthetically pleasing in the yard. For the individual, that wrote that "MULCH IS MULCH"...they obviously do NOT value the consistency of color or texture . Pity for them...but more importantly, stay away from this product until the manufacture remedies their quality control processes.
