Just to let people know, I put down about 40 bags of this mulch 2 weeks ago and even with the storms we've had, it's holding color pretty good. Better than the previous mulch I bought. Also the triple shred is really nice. No big chunks of wood or weird metal or plastic inside which I have gotten from mulch purchased in the past.

And is the bag claim true...that it spreads 50% more ?

In other words coverage is same as 2.0 CF. Or is that marketing nonsense

Check before heading to the store. It's out of stock everywhere near me.

It depends on the moisture level of the mulch in the bag. Some bags I got were for some reason extremely wet, those did not cover well at all and were horrible to work with. If the mulch is dry, it spread so much better.

I also watched a Youtube video on how to spread mulch like a pro to do it the most efficient and right way.

Some areas I haven't mulched in 5 years, but I was able to get my entire front of the house done (extensive landscaping inside and outside of a walkway) (25 feet), the side of the house (30 feet), all along my back fence row (about 80 feet and was basically dirt) then along 1 side of the back of the house (another 20 feet). Alot of these areas have wavy beds, so it was a pretty big job to edge and mulch everything.

When I list it here how much I was able to put down, I would say the coverage was pretty good.

Good mulch, finely ground, covers really well and so far on the 75 bags I put down the color is holding up just fine.

Wow none of the Lowe's around PDX have it. Weird, they're usually pretty good about it this time of year.

333 reviews, 2.5 stars? Considering the work involved in putting out hardwood mulch, even at $2, if it's THAT crappy....

Maybe I'll try a few bags just to see what the problem is. I am curious about how much better the triple shredded spreads (and I assume it slows the water down more than traditional, which could help with water retention/distribution)

They may be putting this on clearance type sale due to such bad feedback from customers. First 8-10 reviews (and maybe more, I stopped reading after seeing so many of the same complaints and pics) all saying same thing, that color lasts 2 weeks tops.

Anyone actually go through the process of cashing in for that "guaranteed color for one year"? Curious how they repay or reimburse for that. Not that I would want that hassle, but if I bought 75 bags of this...

And finally, FWIW, you can buy mulch dye AND mulch glue, for mulch enthusiasts out there that may not know about those products. I use mulch glue in certain spots that get a lot of water/erosion. Never tried the dye.

Bought 10 bags on Saturday and so far I've been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the mulch and that it does cover more area. Sections of my house that would typically require 2 bags look great with about one and a half.

Lowe's is having a 5 for 10 deal on Scotts Nature Scapes Triple Shred 1.5-cu ft Mulch. Normally over 3 dollars a bag, this is the mulch deal of the summer.
