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.

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.

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 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 just laid this down today. Hope it stays red for a year like the bag says.
