Not sure why there are negative reviews on this product. I am very happy with the product. It exceeded my expectations for numerous reasons. No bugs, covers well, looks awesome, no large chunks, moist but not wet, no odor and much easier than hauling large amounts. The 1.5 cubic feet is a fantastic amount (much larger than shown in the picture). It is more expensive than bulk mulch but it is well worth the money. Hint: place corrugated cardboard on top of the soil and anchor with pins or stones. Then place mulch on top of the cardboard (do not use laminated cardboard because it will not amend the soil). It will last a year and is an awesome alternative to other weed block material. After a year, til the soil and repeat the process. Earthworms love the cardboard and so will your plants.

Dear Scott’s Please let me help you to understand what extra fine shred should not contain. Triple shred - with any proper sifting and QC should not have larger chunks of bark and limb pieces. Please save that for another grade mulch. When you state a product will be extra fine shred, the customer expects the delivery of a product that meets your claim. Triple shred should not have large chunks of material that can float and get washed away with rain. That is one of the reasons why we as consumers wish to purchase triple shred mulch. Yes, we know that the shred will not be of an exacting uniform size, but reviews on your site note the “even texture…no large chunks.� Please do not give me the excuse of “particle size may vary slightly.� You need to improve upon your product promise and delivery.

      Comments about Scotts Nature Scapes Black Extra Fine Triple Shred Mulch (88559410):

      I bought this product for the 2nd year. I was very please last year but very disappointed when I opened the bags this year. The mulch was not a fine texture. It has very large pieces of wood and does not spread well.

        Comments about Scotts Nature Scapes Black Extra Fine Triple Shred Mulch (88559410):

        I bought 20 bags of the brown Triple Shred mulch after having such wonderful compliments after using it last year. I have to say this year, I am very disappointed. All 20 bags had huge chunks of wood. It looked like NatureScape mulch in a Triple Shred bag and I was charged a heck of a lot more money. My photo shows the mulch, chunks and all. I wondered why I was using so many bags this year. 33% more coverage? I don't think so. Last year perfection. This year I will be lucky to get any compliments....

            After reading all the reviews and using the same thing in Florida, very disappointed, maybe we got a bad batch, very chunky and wet and not easy to spread.

              Comments about Scotts Nature Scapes Black Extra Fine Triple Shred Mulch (88559410):

              Put this mulch down on Wednesday, rain came Thursday night and the black is gone already, that's just crazy. Even the 3 bags I have left look like they have faded in the bag. So, if you really want black, I would not suggest choosing this. There Is something wrong, and I'm sure Scott's will get it right soon enough. I do like how fine the mulch is compared to others, and luckily I don't mind the brown/natural look of the mulch where I did use it. Not sure if I'll use the remaining 3 bags.

                      This product worked very well. It has an even texture (all pieces about the same size, no large chunks) , and was easy to spread and even out. I put it down in the fall and now in March it still has most of it's color!

                                            I used the Scotts Triple Shred mulch to complement my larger landscape plan to fill-in some areas that I refreshed later in the season. I typically need 3-4 yards of mulch to do my property, but later in the season, bulk doesn't work well to fill-in for small amounts to maintain the look. The Scotts product really made my fall mums POP!

                                                    I like the triple shred. It does have a little more coverage. It can be preference as well, I can see some people Loki g the "bigger" bark pieces just based on look. I tested half the bag in my vegetable garden to help my compost pile and used some around a few perennials. I like it for both purposes.

                                                        I LOVED THE NEW DIFFERENT CUT to the mulch. It spread better than usual and I got better coverage. Next season when I start out the year, I will definitely be able to use less mulch and still have it look good. I love the Scott's black as it doesn't fade.

                                                            I've only had this down a few days, so these are initial impressions. Firstly the color is great, very deep black and very uniform. the small pieces add to the good look of this mulch. It was easy to spread and did seem to cover more area than other brands. Recommended if you like DIY mulching!

                                                                The Triple Shred Mulch exceeded my expectations. It was a finer mulch with excellent color that did not migrate to the gloves I used when spreading the product. It was a more uniform shred and did not have the usual "wood chunks" that one often experiences with other mulches. It appeared to allow water to soak through and then be retained between the mulch and soil. I was very impressed.

Without rain or watering for a week, the bed flourished and the moisture applied on the day of planting prevailed for the ensuing seven days. In addition, the dark background of the mulch presented additional attractiveness to my lawn and background. I plan to add this to the multiple array of Scotts lawn products in use on my lawn/garden for the past 48 years

The color is holding very well and not fading. I live in a windy area so some smaller pieces are being blown away. The bags are convenient to work with and helps in spreading the mulch evenly. I like the product and will buy more next year to finish my project. Try it you will like it.

The consistency of the "triple shred" mulch was perfect and blended in with my existing mulch. I would look to incorporate this product into my spring mulch program.

It easily blends in with the top soil and therefore becomes an invisible barrier to weeds. Plus it does not have that artificial look that other, coarser mulch products have.

                                                                                                      We have a lot of areas to mulch. This year we have used 10 cubic yards of twice ground mulch, which is what is available in our area. I found Scotts triple ground to be a superior product! The mulch itself is uniformly fine which means it will pack down and choke the weeds while still allowing moisture through to keep roots moist. The color of the product the same all the way through the bag; spreading the was easy. This is an outstanding product for the person whom wants to maintain a small to medium, neat weed free flower or evergreen beds.
