ddmcconn" I've never had that problem with it. If you use enough it'll help keep down the weeds. That's why I use it. I hope that helps, Hank

This is an all natural product made out of wood. Scott's does not place any insecticides on their product and why would you any way. this is all natural and many people do not use insecticides in nature due to the fact insects are beneficial

Splinters

Does this pine mulch have nasty splinters like fir mulch?

Anonymous: Gloves! Without them you'll tear your hands up. I pour it from the bag into The Home Depot's orange five gallon bucket and spread that way, but unless you hands are crusted with callouses you're going to need first aid with out a good pair of heavy gloves. I hope that helps, Hank

2 cu. ft. Red Mulch is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 440.

I bought 20 bags of this mulch a couple days ago and then bought 30 more yesterday. Each one by itself looks fine, but the colors are so completely different that it makes the landscaping look poor. One is a vibrant red color and the other is just a red tint. I need another 50 bags to finish my landscaping but who knows what color I'll actually get when I start spreading it. If you only need a bag or two for a small area you are probably fine, but if you have a larger project then I wouldn't recommend this product.

Earthgrow's Red Mulch was something my Ag. teacher friend always recommended. He claimed it cooled the soil and helped reduce weed growth. He preferred the red color, especially around tomatoes. I use it my garden and the reason I only give it four stars is because most folks don't use it correctly. Here's an example: A neighbor complained about a weed problem in an area where nothing else would grow. We have poor clay soil. I suggested he try mulch in that area. He bought only one bag and spread so thin that in some places you could still see the ground. Needless to say he still had a weed problem because the weed seeds still made it down to the clay soil below and sprouted. Scott recommends turning over the top inch of mulch every couple of months to prevent wind blown weeds seeds from getting enough light to germinate. You need a 2 to 3 inch layer to protect and cool your soil. A two cubic foot bag should cover about eight square feet with a layer about three inches thick.

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 got this red much of 25 bags last week , i thought it is a good deal . after bringing it home , found quality was not good. i see wood pieces are rotten-ed and has white patches in almost every bag . Looks very old , may be packed last year . i used to get only this brand all these years but this time the quality was very bad . May be home depot put deals to sell old bags . i did not see much difference in look after spreading it . my lawn does not looks great . so much disappointment .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy the Red Mulch !!!! I purchased 60 bags of red mulch. 45 bags had great red color, but the other 15 were brown in color not red as they were marked. I had to pay a friend $60 to pick up the mulch and I wasn't going pay him to return it too.. Because the color match was so bad I had to go back and purchase 5 more just so I could color match the mulch I had put down on the other side of my yard. So what I have now is a good red color on one side and a brown color on the other side of my yard. Not what I wanted and not what I thought I had purchased. This product isn't what I thought. I thought Scotts products were "great"; however, I was wrong. It's simply AWFUL !!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks vibrant! awesome coloring and great coverage for $2 a bag. My back patio looks amazing. Ignore the "It doesn't provide expected coverage" reviews. I think some people clearly do not understand cubic foot measurements. 3 bags covered nearly 50 square feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Mulch This red mulch adds so much to our yard, providing a beautiful contrast to green lawns and other colored flowers. A very economical beauty enhancer that makes for a clean, well manicured look.
