I have used Home Depot lawn and leaf bags for 20 years. Over that time, the quality, thickness of material, and size has remained constant, kind of surprising because so many other things you buy have degraded in quality over the past several years. We have a lot of trees around our yard and these bags get used a lot, especially in the fall. I have occasionally stuffed them to where they are almost too heavy to carry, but they usually don't break. If the bottom gets too wet, they will break. If you grab them from the top with a heavy load, they will tear. If you put in sharp tree branches, the branches can poke holes in the paper. But if you keep those things in mind, they work fine. I also use these bags as rugs in my garden shed.

These bags are awful. I'm not sure if it's a design flaw or a defective batch of bags...only 3 sides of the bags open. It's like the fourth corner is glued together, all the way to the bottom. Therefore they don't open correctly and they don't fill or stand correctly
Not many options to choose from at Home Depot.My purchase before this one with the refuse bags was not so good. Glue stuck to the sides of the bags and made it very difficult to open. Also the bags tear more easily now and barely stands a rainy day.
We have bought boatloads of these awesome bags, but not for their intended use. We repurposed them to use as a more biodegradable landscape fabric under our newly replaced 100 foot hedge. We have also used them on other planting beds. The heavy paper is perfect and lasts for a.few years with no weeds.
