How long is the Scott's mulch on sale

Asked by Speedo July 31, 2020
2
Answers

I don't work in the store, I'm a customer, so I don't know how long it's on sale. However, I did buy maybe 10 or more bags of this mulch in April they June, 2020. About end of June, starting finding sometimes 1/2 of the bag all white, learning it was a fungi. That doesn't seem healthy, nor pretty on your landscape. So, I could not complete my landscape because this dark brown mulch, very hot outside, .list from condensation naturally, was bad and white. Customers, be aware. Next year I will pur hase all mulch early in season, in spring, not hot summer!

Does not retain color when in sun
We applied 5 bags of this on 9/2/2020. after about a month in the late summer/early fall, the part that is in the sun was noticeably faded, you can see this in the pictures. these 2 areas were applied on the same day, and are about 15-20 feet apart. Look how faded the one picture is compared to the other. Product has a year long color guarantee but what am i supposed to do? Put it all in a trash bag and bring it back to the store?

I was shipped my 2 large orders a week apart (80 bags and 120 bags). The color of the mulch was completely different (see photo) with the 2nd shipment. It is disappointing that you can order at two different times and get different lots with different colors. Manufacturing quality control must be lacking.

Response from ScottsCustomerCareOctober 8, 2020
We are very sorry, John, that you were unhappy with the color of your Earthgro Brown Mulch. Mulches are produced regionally at different plants and sometimes there may be 2 plants distributing to the same market. Because the wood material varies, how that wood absorbs the colorant will vary as well. The color difference will usually go away with exposure to sun and rain. We do have a product guarantee that covers all of our products that we would be happy to extend to you. We would like to discuss this issue more with you so that we can extend to you this guarantee as well as to learn more about this issue. At your earliest convenience, please contact us and refer to your review to see what can be done. We can be reached at 877-220-3089. Scotts
Full of junk!
We purchased an entire pallet of this mulch as we have done every year for about five years. However, this year, we have had to spend hours picking trash out of the mulch! Awful really.... if you are wanting to beautify your landscape, pass on this product. So much trash!!!!

Scotts brand disappoints
The color is not consistent. Some brown bags are black, some have different shades of brown. Many bags have mold in them. Home Depot has told me they have had many complaints about this. Many of the bags I have bought had mulch in them. Disappointed in Scotts brand and Home Depot for continuing to sell this inferior product.

Terrible smell
We purchased a few bags of Scott s Brown mulch to place around trees and shrubs in front of my house! These bags have a strong foul, barn like odor!! Also this morning a swarm of flies were all around the mulch right beneath my Windows!! A few weeks ago I bought the same kind of mulch but did not have this horrible smell! Has something changed?

We hate to hear that you're unsatisfied with Earthgro Brown Mulch. The non-toxic odor is caused by the decomposing of natural materials. It should naturally go away after a few days. If you would like to discuss this or discuss our guarantee, contact us. We are available at 877-220-3089 Scotts

I like the product because it appears to be triple shredded. However, there use to be more in each bag. I'm sure there use to be a 1/2 cubic foot more in my past purchases. The Vigoro is a better value, but their brown is darker which I don't like
