Questions & Answers

Is it pet safe

Asked by: Brian
I would say yes, but not for puppies. Dogs, especially young dogs will eat virtually anything. I've sprayed the mulch with a mild repellent designed to discourage pets from furniture and it works. You'll have to do this occasionally, but soon they'll recognize the red, or any mulch to be undesirable. Gordon

does this red mulch contain any construction debris?
Asked by: cindy
This is the only brand I've bought that has no odd chunks of stuff in it. I don't know what it's actually made of. But it is always very consistent in piece size throughout the bag and from bag to bag. Other brands I've bought have had what looked like broom handles and weird stuff in them. VERY HAPPY WITH THIS BRAND!

2 cu. ft. Red Mulch is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 2653.

Although I would recommended this product due to my past purchase of 65 bags, my recent purchase was unsatisfactory. I bought additional 20 bags of red mulch and at least 6 of the bags contained the red mulch along with a different color being black or dark brown. Needless to say I was disappointed as my landscaping now has multi-colored mulch.

Bought 6 bags of this junk, worse mulch I have ever gotten and I have purchased Vigoro before from Home Depot. It was not even red but more of a brown to black color. I picked out rocks and a beer can tab.....seriously!?!?! I do not live close to the Home Depot or I would have returned it so I put it in a corner flower bed in my back yard. I can tell you I will never buy it again nor any other mulch from Home Depot. I did buy 10 bags of Scotts premium red mulch from a competitor. Too bad your review gets rejected because you cannot mention the competitor's name in the review!! That was the best quality mulch I have ever purchased. Nice red even chunks of mulch, not shredded leftover debris from a storm that was the Vigoro. I bought 2 extra bags of the Scotts so I could sprinkle it on top of the Vigoro to cover it up and make it look nicer. I will purchase this Scotts from the competitor from now on when I buy mulch!! This was my experience, no one else's!

I found A LOT of blue pallet chunks, plastic and other non-wood items in my mulch. I purchased 40 bags for my yard, and for the discounted price of $2/bag, its an "ok" product. There's a reason other mulches cost $3.50/bag I guess. I'll use this mulch this year, and not sure what I'll do next year, but it's frustrating having to pick plastic trash, and blue painted pallet chunks out of the landscape bedding at time of putting it in the landscape. A recent rain washed off a lot of the coloring on other pieces, revealing MORE BLUE pallet pieces.... Kind of frustrating at this point....

For years, Most the mulch offered was double shredded with large species of wood. I decided to try Vigiro premium and it's great. I sure looks like triple shredded mulch. Very reasonable price too.

It is chopped fairly consistent, with only a few random large chunks in a bag. The 4 stars instead of 5 is only because the 12 month color guarantee... while I appreciate the offer, who is going to save the receipt and try and collect on the issue of fading? I'd rather the product just lasted... and unfortunately, mine started fading pretty early on around the 6 month mark, especially around the drip line of my roof's eve's, and in the high sun area's as well. Still, it's the best game in town, just plan on freshening the mulch up once a year to keep it looking great. A friend of mine did mention there is a red dry re-treat product to spray on your mulch, but I haven't looked into it.
