Answer: 
Most insects are not attracted by mulch, but some could be. Our mulches are not treated to deter insects. Insects are natural to the environment, and some insects could find a mulch a suitable place to live. As a general precaution to discourage subterranean termites and other wood damaging insects we suggest keeping mulch a couple inches away from home foundations.

Answer: 
This mulch was on sale on Memorial Day and Labor Day for pretty cheap. When I spread it on a weedless flowerbed, all of these Canadian Thistles popped up, like 100's of them . The seeds must have been in the mulch. It took a lot of RoundUp ounces to finally remove the Thistles from my flowerbeds. Other than that for the price the color was fair.

Answer: 
Not sure on that other than maybe color seepage or as with any wood product, firewood etc., you don't want to have wood butt up against any foundation that could invite termites to nest up along your foundation. Termites would not come from the mulch, but love wood. It could also be that the mulch is good at retaining moisture and that might not be good for foundations.

Answer: 
Because the mulch tends to hold in moisture and water may leak into the foundation. I personally put my mulch up against the foundation and I never had any problems. Plus it looks better that way. Another reason I put my mulch against my foundation is to soak up the extra water after it rains.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 347 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mixed feelings 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. April 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Great I just laid this down today. Hope it stays red for a year like the bag says. April 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Large Nail and Construction Debris Found in Product purchased 15 bags of Earthgro red mulch to use in my front yard. Each bag is clearly labeled as being 'Free From Construction Debris'. The mulch itself is fine, but I found multiple large pieces of wood in the bags (they look like pieces of pallets) as well as a bent rusty nail approximately 5-inches long. This is not only falsely labeled but dangerous even if handled and used correctly. May 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by iTS JUST MULCH PEOPLE I hear a lot of complaints about this red mulch i purchased about 100 bags and yes i had 3 diffrent shades of red but you know something thats ok the sun will bleach the color thats life nothing us perfect some people act like they are buying gold !! Listen folks its just MULCH !!!! If it dosent match exactly its not the end of the world its cheap i purchased it 5 for $10.00 its not going to hurt your wallet ... Sad to see all negative reviews this product is good nulch holds moisture for plants keeps weeds down and looks nice ... Instead of complaing next time thank you garden associate or lot person for all there hard work !!! April 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 18, 2016
