I purchased 12 bags because it was on sale. The red is very bright (for now at least) and looks great against the green of my plants and the color of our brick. It was more shredded than thick chunks, which I like. I think it's easy to get in to the harder to reach areas under plants and along edges. I do want to note that it had rained here and when I bought it it was soaked pretty good... SO if you plan on buying this bring something to put down in your trunk/cargo area like a shower curtain (not towels) because it will leak reddish colored water all over. and make sure you cover the sides of your car too. If it goes on sale again I will probably buy more.

The product in the bags was soaking wet such that large amounts of water ran out of the bags. I had to drain the bags before placing them in my vehicle. The mulch was chocolate brown when applied to my plantings. I thought this was due to the wet condition of the mulch but it dried out chocolate brown as the photo shows. On the left is "Sierra Red" mulch I previously applied, on the right is the faulty brown mulch. There is much very fine wood material and large quantities of sand in the bagged mulch. The new mulch has dried and remains off-color.

          I PURCHASED 4 BAGS OF THE RED COLOR SCOTT'S MULCH. I DID THE USUAL IN PUTTING A FLOWER BED IN MIDDLE OF YARD. DUG UP OLD DIRT AND REPLACED, THEN GROUND COVER SHEETING AND THEN APPLIED THE MULCH. AFTER THAT I WANTED TO WATER MY FLOWERS, AND THE COLOR STARTED TO RUN OFF AND THE RED DYE WAS GONE. THE WATER WAS RED, BUT THE MUCH WAS BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL STATE. VERY DISAPPOINTED. I HAD RED BEGONIA'S AND IT WAS VERY PRETTY UNTIL I WATERED THEM. I HAD PUT SOME OF IT IN A POTTED PLANT AND IT KILLED MY PLANT. BOO WHO! NOT SURE I WILL BUY AGAIN. I CARRIED THE BAG ON MY FOOT AND MY FOOT TURNED RED, AND IT WAS HARD TO GET OFF!

              I have been a huge fan of Scott's products. Never had issues in past. Just bought mulch last week and looked great until it rained 2 days ago and all the color is gone. Guaranteed for 12 months!!! It can't last more than 3 days!! I hope someone from Scott's will respond and stand by the brand name and reputation and make it up to their customers

                      I bought a dozen bags of Scotts Red Color Guard Mulch and it was a waste of money. What came out of the bag was brown, there was some red dust in it. The mulch itself had very few fines in it. Shreds of wood were very large, some over 8 inches long, most in the 4 to 6 inch range. Very difficult to get an even looking result when spread.

                        Just purchased 10 bags from a big box home supply store. Turns out half were last year's stock and the color....Sierra Red... was brown in the new stock, not red. It was also all mildew and soaking wet. Scotts should not allow stores to sell last year's stock, at least not at the same price as new.

                          Over the years I bought many local brands of mulch...onlu to have to redress or scoop it up and discard it the next Spring. last year I bought Scotts Nature Scapes Enhanced Red Mulch Starting my Spring cleanup of my yard, I found that a little easy raking over of the Scotts mulch, that it looked brand new as if it just came out of bag! It held up fantastically...and I will buy more this Spring to address other areas of my yard. Thank you Scotts...your products are AMAZING!

                              We are very pleased with this mulch. Excellent coloring, not too red. Dries to a nice reddish brown. No trash or debris in the mulch, and not much color transfer to clothing. Bags are a good size to easily transport. Far superior to the bulk mulch we bought last year. No paint smell prevalent in other colored mulches.

                                  I've had a large landscaped area next to my home for the last 5 years. This is my first year using the red mulch from Scott's. What a great move forward from the other mulches I've been using in past years. The size of the material seem to be somewhat fine and it covered last years mulch very easily. In fact I ended up using much less of the Scott's mulch than I ever having used in previous years. For the start of the season the color is uniform and after a rain last night I have no bleeding out of thr color. We will have to see what it looks like ','following summer

                                      I spread 8 bags of the red mulch around our fish pond before a rain. Once the rain started falling you could watch the color just wash off . I have spread other types of mulch in the same place for 3 years and have never had our water turn blood red. It looks older than what was left from last year.

                                        I bought 12 bags of the Sierra Red which I purchased last year and loved. This year over half of the bags I purchased were red until I dumped out the bag and the mulch in the middle was brown and covered in white spots. It also had a very strong odor. Unfortunately this year's mulch was not as satisfactory as the mulch I bought last year.

                                                  I used Scott's nature scapes red mulch product for my friends house. It gave a nice contrast to the shrubs and smaller plants. The key feature to the product is that the mulch isn't composed of large chunks of wood; rather small chunks. Good product. Price is a quite high though.

                                                    I purchased 12 bags because it was on sale. The red is very bright (for now at least) and looks great against the green of my plants and the color of our brick. It was more shredded than thick chunks, which I like. I think it's easy to get in to the harder to reach areas under plants and along edges. I do want to note that it had rained here and when I bought it it was soaked pretty good... SO if you plan on buying this bring something to put down in your trunk/cargo area like a shower curtain (not towels) because it will leak reddish colored water all over. and make sure you cover the sides of your car too. If it goes on sale again I will probably buy more.

                                                        I've bought Scott's for several years but never again. Many of the bags of "red" were brown. Scott's response was that the color would fade and even out. So much for the "Guaranteed" color retention. In my experience , it does fade, contrary to their ads. This batch also was more pulp than mulch

                                                            I love this product. Coupons make it even better. It looks great in our flower beds, around the shrubs and trees. The red coloring last far longer than any other brand. It's perfect.

I had to drain the bags before placing them in my vehicle. The mulch was chocolate brown when applied to my plantings. I thought this was due to the wet condition of the mulch but it dried out chocolate brown as the photo shows. On the left is "Sierra Red" mulch I previously applied, on the right is the faulty brown mulch. There is much very fine wood material and large quantities of sand in the bagged mulch. The new mulch has dried and remains off-color.

                                                                              This product is great the color last very long, it keeps the soil moist therefore I water less. One thing I don't like is some times the color is slightly difference (purchased a pallet) but it not that big of a deal. Overall I would highly recommend this product.
