Item description is miss leading.
The picture of the mulch is most likely not what you’re going to get. I realize the product says it can vary from state to state but I didn’t even get close to what I ordered. It’s too late once they drop it off. I had 10 cubic yards dropped off. You can’t really return that. I should have looked in the truck before they unloaded. The picture Home Depot shows large wood chips for which I wanted for my child’s playground. I got small landscaping mulch you would use for a flower bed. Not ideal for a playground. I will go to a a different place from now on and visually pick what I want.

I ordered 6 cubic yards for a 20x20ft play area. This was a good amount and filled the box nicely with a large uhaul boxful left over which can be used as a refill later. These woodchips are not as clean as advertised there are small stones, and pieces of plastic mixed in. I think these foreign items get mixed in because the truck that delivers it has the mulch directly in the flat bed and residue of whatever was previously in the truck mixes in. For the price I expected it to be pure wood chips. It is super dusty and dry on arrival but after it rains that really calms down. Delivery will be dumped in a heap on your driveway so be sure to have a plan to get it to the backyard. You will most definitely need a shovel and a wheelbarrow or some other way to move it.

Pretty much as advertised
We ordered 5 cu. yd. for the area around the play set (see picture) and it was more than enough. The mulch is good at cushioning falls but the kiddos still complain about getting scratched from time to time. Our only real complaint is that the mulch had a decent amount of plastic debris mixed in – both hard and soft plastics.
by Brewser
Better than expected!
The mulch arrived much sooner than originally quoted, which worked out great. The mulch was much smaller than shown in the picture and more finely chopped, which made the mulch softer and bouncier. Product has been great, and the kids have loved playing in this more than the dirt yard that their play set was previously on.

The ordering was easy, just select the amount you need. the delivery company was very good at communicating the delivery. The mulch itself was good, exactly the size i expected. The only issue was the mulch did have rocks, shells, and a 2"x 1" chunk of cement with reinforcement in it. I believe the delivery company should take a little more care cleaning out trucks between loads, as all the rocks/shells looked like typical landscaping materials.

Great playground mulch!
As advertised, this stuff is better than I expected for my kid's playground. The scheduling was easy, the man came right during the time frame he said he would, and then helped me prep my driveway before he dumped the mulch.
by Alex
Overall Great product.
There were some issues with the delivery but once that was straight now everything else was good. It was much darker than the pictures but it seem to lighten up as it started to dry. Haven’t built the playground yet but judging by the cushion it seems like it would be good for kids. For the money I think this is the best product out!

Poor Quality
It pains me to write a negative review of home depot, but I have tried several times to get this problem rectified to no success. The playground mulch was poor quality to say the least. It did not resemble the picture at all. The mulch was overly shredded and appeared to look more like dirt than playground mulch, like it does on the website. After several attempts to get someone to come and pick up this mulch, a representative told me no one would come and pick it up, to just put in somewhere in my yard or try and sell it myself. I am now stuck with five yards of poor quality mulch in my driveway, that now I have to figure out what to do with it. Do not buy this mulch.

Simple Playground Mulch
We purchased a backyard playground about 6ft x 14ft and placed a Fit It All boarder. We ordered 6 cu yd of mulch and it was more than enough with some great depth. The mulch delivery contacted me about a day after the order to confirm delivery date and time window. The day of the scheduled delivery I received a call and text that the truck was on the way. Truck arrived timely after the call, within the hour. Truck dropped on the area marked with a tarp, for easier clean up, but didn't block drive way, very neatly done. The mulch was "clean", and free of debris. The only issue I had was a 35lbs rock mixed in, I'm sure I was shorted a 30 lb bag of mulch, but I'm also sure the mulch is not perfect math. I had just want I needed and just what I ordered. Very satisfied, I'd use HD again when it's time to refresh, best deal around. I'd love for there to be a way to honor the military discount here.

There was a large quantity of rocks within the mulch, which can be hazard if a child would fall onto the mulch. I would not recommend this product for use in the playground. I ordered 7 cu yds, so return was not an option. I had to sort out a large quantity of rocks.
