Mulch quality:
1. Earthgro by Scotts (HD)
2. Vigoro (HD)
3. Premium Mulch at Lowes
4. Hyponex by Scotts (Walmart)
...
100. Crap at K-Mart

My list after 6 years of experience with all the above.

We put pea gravel in our play area and never looked back! Rubber mulch was outrageously expensive and can sometimes leave black residue. Pea gravel was cheap and instantly drains the water so if it rains the kids can go right outside and play- or works great under water tables , etc.

Rubber mulch is great. It's made of recycled tire so it helps take tires out of the landfill too. Costco has it for $7.99 per bag. It was $2 off per bag last month and may get back to that price again.

It's my experience that all the colored bark is awful. The true bark (Earthgro groundcover) at OSH and Home Depot are the best, but never get to these prices. $4 per bag right now at OSH is actuall s good idea.

Pea gravel is good, but looks and acts very different. If placed along the lawn, rocks can kick up when mowing and fly into windows.

It's also a good idea to put some quality landscape fabric under any good ground cover... especially the pebbles, or the ground-cover will mix with the soil and you'll be pulling weeds for days.

How does this compare to Scott's Earthgo that is on sale for $2.50 per bag and the sale ends today? Also, any chance that the Scott's Earthgo will also see the same price cut?

Since I need to buy mulch for my backyard soon I've been looking through memorial day sales and while the prices are good, the quality of the mulch seems questionable based on reviews. So far I've looked at the two at HD (Vigoro and Earthgro) one at Lowes, and the Hyponex at Walmart. They've all got similar reviews (though the Hyponex seems to have the worst). Color doesn't hold up (days to a few months), and people are finding trash mixed in (nails, plastic, rocks, etc). So I don't know that it'd make too much a difference which one you get, just try to check the bags carefully and hang onto your receipt if you need to return.

TBH I don't worry about the color fading all that much, and don't recall finding much trash, though I haven't bought any in the last year or two so maybe that's a recent phenomenon. The problem I've encountered a lot is fungus growing in the mulch - unfortunately unless it's really bad you often can't tell til you open the bag.

What about rubber mulch? I don't really like the idea but looking for something around and under a playset especially at bottom of climbing wall and slide. We're looking for a softer landing for any falls vs. hard sandy soil w/ grass.

Hrmm. Had thought of that but we're on a small city lot so somewhat concerned about polluting the other ten sq ft of back yard with it, ha. It's not quite that small but somewhat concerned with overspill. Maybe I'll have to revisit as I know it's cheap and can create a decent wall around. Thx!

We have railroad ties enclosing our play are but a little bit of a buffer would be worth it! 👍🏻

There's a lot of moisture, so it tends to get moldy if kept in the bag for too long.

It will mold over after a few days/weeks left inside the bag. I bought some with the first sales of the spring and it was a couple weeks before I got to the mulching stage. My black mulch now had huge clumps of white. Supposedly the mold dies off after some time in the sun.
