Questions & Answers

Does the color stay black or how quickly does it fade

Asked by: tweedie
I read the bag and their website from Scott's and it indicates do not place mulch down if it is going to rain or irrigation on the area for 24 hours. The mulch has to "bake" in the sun to hardened the color. Plus Scott's recommends that every six months you turn the top three inches over to keep the color warranty

How many bags on a pallet?

I need 1 1/2 yards of mulch. How many bags shoule I purchase?

Asked by: Geeg
That depends on how thick of a layer you want and how thinly you spread it. The Scotts product manual states, for 3" depth (recommended), 1 bag will cover 8 square feet, 2 bags covers 16 sq ft, 3 covers 24, 4/32, 5/40, 6/48, etc. There is a link to the manual on this product page. If you've already determined you need 1.5 cubic yards, then you only need to convert cubic yards to cubic feet to know how many bags you need. If you Google CUBIC YARDS TO CUBIC FEET a handy conversion calculator will appear on screen. I took those steps and the calculator states 1.5 cubic yards equals 40.5 cubic feet. So, since each bag is stated to be 2 cubic feet, you'll need 20-21 bags to get 1.5 cubic yards of mulch. To be clear, according to Scotts, 20-21 bags (1.5 cubic yards) should be enough to cover 160-168 SQUARE feet at 3 inches thick. I'm not sure how large an area you need to cover and/or how you came up with needing "1 1/2 yards of mulch" so I can't say for sure if 20-21 bags will in fact be enough for your project.

How many cubic feet are in a yard of mulch?

Asked by: Grace
If you Google CUBIC YARDS TO CUBIC FEET you will see a handy calculator. Type in 1 for the cubic yard and it shows 27 as how many cubic feet is equal to 1 cubic yard. Many calculators like these can be found on Google and will help you with many projects. Need to know how many square feet in an acre? Google ACRES TO SQUARE FEET, and so on. ;)

Customer Reviews

Earthgro 2 cu. ft. Black Mulch is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 4856.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Red Mulch included 50% brown material Scott's quality control is missing. A guarantee does not absolve defective material. Out of the bag much of the material was brown and the red was very low intensity in comparison to Scott's Triple Shred. Red is selected for its POP appearance. Per the chain of review comments this problem has been on going for years. Even if Scott reimburses the material cost I am out the initial install cost, the now removal of defective material cost and the replacement install cost. A leading supplier should be concerned with maintaining a good public image through supplying good product. That isn't the case here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update on my frist review DO NOT GET MULCH WET for 24hrs after laying I reviewed this black mulch last month and asked Home Depot to remove my review because it wouldn't allow me to update of edit. I first gave this mulch a one star because it lost color right after I water the plants after laying the mulch in my yard. This is what I learned. DO NOT WATER MULCH FOR 24hrs. This mulch is wet when it comes out of the bags. Allow it to dry 24 hrs after installing and then water your plants. There is no instructions that tell you this, I came by it from trial and error. The color did not change and I am very happy to report after a month of watering plants in the mulch the color is still as dark as when I first purchased it. I hope this helps others in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage mixed in with mulch I bought 36 bages of the brown earthgro mulch and had pieces of plastic bags, bottle caps, pull tabs from soda cans, painters tape, small metal springs and other garbage mixed in with the mulch. There was something in every bag. I had to spend extra time picking out the garbage from the mulch I bought. This is completely unacceptable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed and Horrible Quality etc... My husband got about 20 bags of it on sale, at 1st I thought it was a good deal but after 20 days that I put it down I noticed that something was growing through the mulch. I moved it to see what was that and I realized that they were beans growing in the mulch. Anyway they have grown across the whole area that I used the mulch. I have been removing the beans, but it's so hard as you have to move the whole mulch and pull the roots. I still have half way to go. I am so upset that I have to spend my time doing that because this product is garbage. I wish I could take it back. 2 years ago I had a similar problem along ours arbovitaes but instead of beans growing everywhere, there were onions, it's very low quality and has a lot of larger wood chips in it and the black color fades quickly. That's how the Home Depot expect me to spend my summer? Picking weeds, beans and onions out of the mulch give me a break, that is the reason I put the mulch down in the first place is to avoid pulling weeds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I have been a loyal Scotts user for years, following the recommended cycle religiously. When I saw this product at Home Depot it was a no brainer. I would pay more to to buy the Scotts product because it is superior. I purchased 15 bags of the Black Mulch with "10% more color" and 12 Month guarantee. I put the 15 bags out yesterday as we expected some rain last night. The product looked great and made the yard look perfect. I went out this morning after the rain last night and the black had all washed out of the mulch and it is now brown. I am extremely disappointed not to mention upset that I spent the time and effort to put 15 bags in my gardens and now I have to replace it all. Not happy!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from white mold/fungus growth At first glance, this looked like a good product. My impression of Scotts products have always been good, but this damages their reputation in my opinion. I bought 20 bags from my local HD store. 7 of the bags contained heavy mold/fungus growth. Several additional bags were found to have some strands of white residue, which really took away from the nice black color. I couldn't tell if that was also fungus/mold, as these easily wiped off when i rubbed the pieces of mulch together with my fingers (dont worry, i definetely wore gloves). I will be calling Scotts customer service, as I am not satisfied. Hard to return opened bags of mulch. Word of advice - inspect the bags when you buy them at the store. Check to nake sure there are no signs of foreign growth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Texture I bought the Earth Gro to add on to my regular mulch--and it was a little redder than I wanted but I was disappointed in the texture--some of the mulch was not ground up compared to my other mulch. I was used to two or three times ground. Some of the twigs were 6 inches long and large blocks that were never ground. It was hard to get out of the bag and distribute.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Bought a bunch of the red mulch and it is terrible. The color varied from orange-red to brown. Yes, some of the bags (or parts of bags) were brown instead of red. There were also gray pieces of mulch, which suggests that this is old mulch that has been re-colored. I will never buy Scott's mulch again. Another brand I finished the job with is far superior.

I liked that it had only a few "logs" in it, and found several pieces that missed the "color machine". Mos of the mulch was almost finely shredded, so much so that I looked at the bag to see if I had purchased it by mistake. I would recommend this mulch.

There were several bags that were noticeably different in color and apppeared to be more brown than black even though the bag was labeled as black. These bags needed to be mixed into the others to avoid the disparity in color in the flower bed.
