Not Red
Bought 10 bags. Horrible mix of brown in red. One bag all brown. Never buy this again. Picture shows whole bag of brown. Put a little red next to it in order to show difference.
    Mulch is not shredded mulch.
    Mulch is not second shredded as described. What is said, "Shredded mulch." See photso taken from the website pictures. Also are photos of the actual sizes- as large as my surfboards. I purchased 200 bags. Disappointing, not the results I was looking for.
      Rocky Balboa/Melted Metal/Electrical Lockout Tag
      I bought 38 bags of Vigor Black Mulch different pallets/days - the same Home Depot. I found rocks, concrete, a piece of melted metal (thumb size) and even an Electrical Lockout tag. It wasn't in all bags but about 50% had foreign objects bad QC.

        Color and Smell Not Consistent
        We bought 15 bags of red mulch that were true red and smelled "woody" and fresh. Bought 15 more the next day and they were shredded and not the same bright red, and they smelled like manure. Now each half of our planter is noticeably a different shade.

          Full of weeds
          We used the red mulch to prevent weeds. Guess what was in the mulch; weed seeds. Spent weeks uprooting these. What a waste of money. Compelled to give one star this product doesn’t deserve

            Different Color
            Purchased 20 bags and 1 of them had a different style and color to it. Little disappointed when I poured this into the garden and had to remove. You shouldn't have to, but keep a close eye when purchasing/loading this into your vehicle.

              Decent Mulch, but Some Issues
              I just finished a large landscaping project in my back yard that required approximately 50 bags of the Viggoro Brown Mulch… I had used this brand previously after a similar landscaping project in my front yard last year. The price was affordable and I like the bags as I could avoid having a large pile of loose bulk mulch taking up my driveway! The mulch I put down last year held its color for months, still looking brown (albeit a much lighter shade of brown) after approximately a year. I do live in a dry climate, so that may have been part of the reason… Further, I did not experience the weed contamination issues. Weeds did eventually appear, but in significantly fewer numbers than before and were of types already present in my yard previously. My biggest issue with the mulch was the inconsistent type/texture. Some bags contained “nuggets” while others “stringy” pieces. That seems to vary by time of year, e.g. mulch I got in the summer months had the nugget texture whereas mulch I got in the fall/winter was the stringy variety. In short, the Viggoro mulch did what I needed it to do…

                Bark not sterilized
                I bought over 50 of these bags and it turns out that 2 or 3 were not sterilized and full of weeds. Exactly what I was trying to prevent. The weeds now need to be removed (>1000) individually as I cannot put Roundup on them due to our dog. See photo.

                  BACK TO BLACK
                  I have always spread the Red color but after spreading the black color. Wow what a difference.
