Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product does keep it's color, but.... We installed the Brown mulch 4 days ago and it still smells really bad. Not sure what or where in the forest you grabbed this mulch, but it smells like defication. As soon as u walk outside any time of the day it smells.not sure we will buy this product again. We will be purchasing another brand to finish our landscape.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disgusted in Michigan Last year I bought 30 bags of Scott's Colorstay brown mulch from Tractor Supply, and I put it down in my garden and shrub beds. The mulch looked good last year, but this year, in August, stink horns have started to grow through the mulch - see pictures. After living more than 60 years on my property in Michigan, I had never heard of or seen this fungus before, and I now believe that it came to my garden in the Scott's mulch. It is disgusting! In order to deal with them, I'm going around digging out the stink horns to try to keep them from spreading as I have read they will do. I've also started to rake up, bag, and remove all the Scott's mulch in an effort to get rid of this disgusting fungus. I've been a long time gardener and have used mulch many times before, but never Scott's mulch. I'm heartbroken and tired of raking up the mulch and looking for and picking out the stink horn "eggs" to keep them from growing into the awful pink unsightly slimy stalk-like fungus that you see in the pictures of my garden that I've uploaded. I never had this fungus in my garden before, and I will never recommend this mulch to anyone.
