Scotts Colorstay Mulch, Black is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color didn't even last 2 days Put it in the garden on Sunday morning came home from work Monday afternoon and the mulch wasn't black anymore. Terrible. 3 bags are now wasted and I have 2 more I'm going to use where nobody can see.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from EarthGrow Mulch Year Long Color lasted 2 months Spread 43 bags of EarthGrow Mulch (Brown) the first of March. Two months later the color is white and the mulch looks terrible and unacceptable. Quality of the product over the past few seasons has been less than advertised / guaranteed. Will be raking up and respreading new mulch (not EarthGrow) to save plants and for curb appeal. Rating indicates recommendation.

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.
