Bad Materials

    Wet moldy bags made this hard to recommend
    I ordered 100 bags of this mulch and had it delivered to my house with free shipping so I didn't expect it to be perfect. Like other reviews I had color variation, some bags were finely shredded and some were big chunks, and some bags had debris. None of that bothered me. I made sure to order this during a dry spell and opened the bags mostly within the same day and all within 24 hours. The majority of them were soaked inside and 30% of them had mold growing through them.

      Something was not okay
      I bought three bags, a bag was heavier than other. I thought that bag was wet. I opened and found a big clay inside . Picture showed a pruner to compare size.

        inconsistent quality
        Geeze I hope they don't charge me extra for what came in my last bunch of bags. I must have bought 40 bags of this material over the past 4 months, good quality and consistent product. Don't know what happened with these last bags, 20 total, but it was awful. Large chunks, roots, stone, brick, large mulch , small mulch, chips, and everything in between. Going to plant the root and see what kind of free tree they included.

          Plastic and smaller cu ft
          Bought this on sale, even though it's a smaller cu ft/bags than some other. Included large chunk of plastic and multiple big chunks/sticks. Not a quality you'd want to use in a flower bed area, visible area, or with edible producing plants.

            Worked for me!
            I took a chance with this mulch after reading some bad reviews. Home Depot had a 5 for $10 deal so I got 10 bags of the brown mulch. There was no debris or trash mixed in. It has lost a tiny bit of color but I really like the color it is. It’s been on the ground for 2+ weeks and through 2 rainstorms and I live about 2 blocks from the Atlantic of the coast of Maine. I did the recommended 3 inches of mulch and I have NO weeds poking though. I did a layer of newspaper before laying it down as well. Overall great product for the great price.

              Not brown
              I bought 40 bags of brown mulches, when I spread it on the flowers bed, several bags are BLACK mulch not brown mulch, it makes my landscape so strange in 2 different color, I will not recommend this brand.

                Different colors
                Went to spread 10+ bags in my garden bed and it was clear that several bags were a darker color. I thought maybe those bags were wet so I sprayed the entire garden bed after spreading thinking that would unify them. I called Scotts customer service, spoke with Alyssa (I think that was the name) and all she could read from the script was " that the mulch is manufactured in different areas and the mulch can be different shades of brown." She had nothing else to say. I was very unhappy.

                  Best!!
                  I spread 12 bags of this and the quality is so much better than the other brands! Real chunks of hardwood, not just shredded scrap, and not a bit of mold or mildew. There were two over-sized pieces of wood in the bunch, but everything else was great. It covers well and hopefully the color will last more than a few weeks.

                    Multiple colors!
                    Like others, my order contained bags that had brown and black mulch, even though they all said brown. How hard is it to have consistency? Not happy!
