      Horrible Color
      Scotts used to be known for quality. The mulch they sell is anything but quality. The red isn't even red, more like a brow color with a slight tint of red. You can see from the pictures it's not even close to matching.

        The quality from bag to bag is inconsistent
        The quality from one bag of this mulch to the next is inconsistent. And as such, my yard looks like a weird patchwork of color and texture. Do not buy this mulch. While off-brands have texture and color that is not as good, as least those are consistent from bag to bag

          color gone after rain
          This mulch is horrible. I bought 14 bags to put down and it looked great at first. 2 days of rain and its just brown mulch. Black color is gone. So very disappointing

            Inconsistent Texture and Quality Bag to Bag
            We recently bought 40 bags of this product. About half the bags were the regular hardwood mulch we'd bought in the past. The rest of the bags were either all bark, or all very fine, almost dirt texture. They look pretty bad side by side in a bed.

                  Try some other mulch
                  My husband and I hauled 50 Bags! 50! And the black mulch was disappointing. My front year is big and i wanted to replace wood chips with nice black mulch, i always had good experience with Scotts so decided to try the black earthgro out. Disappointing! I replaced one section on Saturday and on Sunday another section. You can tell what I laid out on Saturday was fading fast. Very disappointing, it only took one day to start loosing significant color. In addition, some bags were already dry and brown while others had moldy white stuff all over. 50 bags of waste!!!

                    product gone bad
                    I have been using this product for many years. I have been buying around 40 bags every two to two and a half years. The shape of the chips of wood were so much more attractive than the shredded, stringy character of the competitors product. And because I liked the rich bright brown color. Especially when fresh, the green of the plants popped against that bright brown color. Several weeks ago I bought 20 bags i preparation for spreading after I finished planting. Yesterday I layed down the first 10 bags of mulch and to my dismay, the mulch looked like the dregs of a saw mill, stringy and shredded. Worse, the brown color looked as if it were adulterated with black dye, more black than brown. Very disappointing.
