Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lost It's Color Within 4 Months I have to admit, I use ONLY Scott's products on my lawn. However, the Earthgro product looses it's color way to quick. In my case, I put down two years in a row and both times it lost it's color quickly. The first year I thought it may have been a fluke, but two years in a row tells me this is a problem with the product. The first year I put down 95 bags and in April of this year I put down another 95 bags. I'm very disappointed with the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy I purchased 18 bags this product and applied to my landscaping. As I applied the mulch I found a few bits of plastic. I removed and discarded. Over the next two weeks it rained twice. After the rains the color of the mulch washed away significantly and revealed a lot of debris all over the landscaped area. Plastic bag, foam, chucks of white plastic, rubber. Bits of trash all over. This product is made up of colored trash. I will have to spend hours picking out the trash from my landscaping. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! The remaining portion that is mulch is faded. I'll be seeking a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Free of construction debris? I purchased five bags of Scotts Earthgro brown mulch. The bag states "free of construction debris". There was a 6x7 inch piece of plywood within the mulch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Appreciable amount of plastic and vinyl foreign material found in mulch I bought eight bags of Earthgro yesterday to lay out over some of my mulch beds. In every bag there was a noticeable amount of plastic trash mixed in with the mulch. I noticed what seemed to be large bits of what appeared to be part of a blue vinyl glove in one. Multiple bags had a a shiny reflective plastic wrapper type material mixed in. One of the bags had what I could only guess wast the lens from a pair of safety glasses. The mulch itself seemed OK but I have never purchased mulch in my life before that has had this poor of quality control when it comes to foreign material mixed in. I'm having to pick through my mulch beds now to remove the trash. A very upsetting experience.

Can it be used safely around our fruit and vegetable garden or does it contain chemicals that could contaminate the fruit and vegetables? 

Asked by: PMB3
Thank you for inquiring about Scott's Black Colorstay Mulch. While this mulch is safe to use around edible and vegetable gardens, it should not be tilled into the soil or applied to a planting hole, as it will rob nitrogen from the plants. If you have any questions or would like further assistance, please contact us at and one of our representatives would be glad to assist you.
