I am retired so I bought this thinking it would save me labor and look grat for some time. I spent close to $900.00 on this and after a very mild winter It caked like cow patties and has very little color left. This is after only being down for 9 months. I am so disappointed. I have loved all of Scotts products till this happened. It will never happen again.

      Comments about Scotts 2 Cu. Ft. Black Mulch (88502440):

      I always use bagged mulch and like the dark black mulch the best. Scott's Nature's Scapes color enhanced mulch was true to color and quality. Most mulch contains large pieces of wood that was not ground enough. Scott's was fairly fine in texture which I prefer. It may a bit more expensive but worth the price. I would recommend
      This product. Enjoy receiving your products which are always excennent quality. You get what you pay for.

            This mulch has held up well but as for the year long color....NO WAY. We haven't even made it to 6 months and it has lost a lot of color. We have had a lot of rain in our area but you wouldn't this this color would just "wash off".

                I really never thought too much about various types of mulch.. I started to pay attention to the mulch I received since I was sent Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch to tryout and give my opinion. Compared to some other types of mulch I have used over the years I can say I really like this Scotts mulch. The pieces are more like thin chips of various sizes. They don't blow away as some types tend to do. This mulch is more on the smallish size. But this was a 2cf bag so it covered the same amount of area as any other type of mulch. Some types of mulch I have used in the past were all sorts of chunks in irregular sixes and shapes but this has a nice neat look. I received the black and it has been down a few months now and it is holding its color and I am pleased.

                    Love the product, color (black) is classic and stays throughout season BUT we now have an INFESTATION OF BLACK CARPENTER ANTS! Any value has been taken by having the beds sprayed to kill these rascals... Disappointed in that aspect of the product!

                        We had a very good result with Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch. We spread the black colored mulch under our flowering bushes in front of our house and the result was really striking. It really looks like a professional landscaping job. Thanks, Scotts, for letting us try your fine product.

                                    My husband was assigned the task of mulching this year. After putting this product down, he was not thrilled with the color of the mulch, but I completely disagree. I totally love the dark look. Every year we have a light brown, but this color is a nice change

                                            We spread two bags of your Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch under our Forsythia bushes in our front yard and it produced a really handsome result that looked like a professional landscaper had done it. That black mulch really set off the yellow Forsythia flowers to beautiful effect. Thanks, Scotts, for letting us try this fine product. We'll be back for more at the store.

                                                            I was looking for a mulch that would not only hold it's color, but would provide a nice curb appeal to my homes yard.Scott's Nature Scapes did the job! The product was easy to spread down around my areas I was looking to enhance and the color looks 100% better than the previous product I was using. I would recommend this product to anyone that wants your color of mulch to keep its nice look for a long period of time.

                                                              I purchased scott's black mulch last night at my local home improvement store. When opening and spreading this morning I found that there were very large pieces of wood in most of the bags and that much of the black color had faded. I have used this product successfully in the past and usually purchase 40 bags. Fortunately, I did not have access to a truck yesterday so I only purchased 5 bags. But, now where do I get the additional 35 bags to ensure that they are BLACK!

This mulch seems to be a lot more colorful and stays black for a long time. I will for sure be buying more bags of this mulch and telling other people about. All these words are my own and I got this product for free for my review.

Coverage was better than any mulch I have ever used. There were no large pieces of wood that so often happens with bargain mulch. I cannot comment on the weed prevention but have no doubt that it will work.

The color was good, only had for a few weeks now, so do not know how long the color last.
