Fungi and debris
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I was hesitant on writing a review, but as time goes on, this brand of mulch gets worse. I have been a customer of this brand of mulch for a number of years, and I purchase approximately 100 bags a summer and distribute this mulch around our yard to beautify it. This year, I found "garbage/recycling debris in the bags of mulch, which I had to continually get rid of; I was just very disappointed. I have always found that when I placed the mulch down, I could look back at my yard and look at my yard with pride; but not this year. I have lost interest in sitting outside this year, as the more fungus I have to weed out of the mulch, I just get more sad; the fungus is totally overpowering everywhere I have placed the black mulch. Now I have to spend more money purchasing more products to kill the fungus on the mulch. I am totally disgusted. I feel the only way I am going to get rid of the fungus is pulling up all of the mulch and replacing it with something else. These "mushrooms" are literally everywhere. It appears next summer I will have to find another plan to take care of my lawn...no thanks to Earthgro........

We apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced with Earthgro by Scotts Mulch. Most of our soils are made of composted forest products and contain very little, if any, actual soil. These composted forest products provide high organic content and nutrients without the concern for soil compaction and allows for air to reach the roots of the plant which improves plant performance. You can contact us if you would like to continue discussing this or if you want to know about our product guarantee. You can reach us here https://tinyurl.com/y8nvfsca.

I used this for 30 years but never will again.
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I have bought this same mulch for my property for the past 30 years and never had a problem until this year. I bought 20 bags of the Red mulch, and moe than half of them were more Brown color than Red. The remaining bags were half Brown half Red. On the bright side, there was one bag that was red. I can only assume that there was some kind of problem during the manufacturing of this, but you would think that there would be some kind of quality control during the process.

White Mold
I normally get this mulch, have for years. Last year there was some mold in 2 bags but I was excited so just moved on. This time I got excited and didnt even wait for the sales. I went and got 15 bags of the red the middle of the bags had a white mold in them. My new woodchips look worse then my last years there is white dull patches everywere. I'm so frustrated. I used to be able to count on this product and this will probably be my last year buying this mulch. I still need to get at least 40 more bags but it wont be this product. Dont do what I did and just dump the bags cause how do you even return it when it's all over your growned.

I chose this product because although the color description is red I learned from other reviewers that it was brown with a hint of red which was perfect for my Brooklyn tree bed fence project. The product was delivered the same day as ordered and I am extremely happy with the results and so are my neighbors and people that pass by.

Full of Debris
Customer review from scotts.com logo
After opening a couple dozen bags I decided to start collecting the debris I was finding in these bags. Nails, glass, metal and landscape fabric - you name it I probably found it ground up in my bags. I use over 200 bags a year - might be time to find another brand.
