My experience is the Lowes one is pretty crappy (a lot of broken up pallets and large pieces) so I can't imagine the HD one being much worse

Yeah I finally had a bad experience last year with Lowes after 3 prior years with no problems.
Basically my house was attacked by artillery fungus - for people who don;t know what it is - it's as bad as it sounds with really no solution to get rid of...think ALIENS.

Also, I noticed like you it broke up but at the end of 1 year. In other words, the mulch may start out as shredded hardwood but becomes harden & large pieces by the end of year one.
So it starts being carried away from your landscape beds if just a little rain falls.

Never going to use Lowes again unless it's at the far reaches of the yard & away from the house.

Actually, you're better off just getting a decent 'tine' rake and breaking up clumping wood that adds to the 'mold' process. You can get a cycle going around the 'skirt' of your house, by laying down cardboard (reuse boxes, unless they're heavily printed with non-organic inks) to 3 feet beyond your foundation, then add a layer of sand, then mulch. Systematically break up the mulch, and add another layer when needed. If rain isn't consistent enough in your area, you can extract or add to make up the difference.

I, too, would avoid the mulches that have too much of the larger pallet pieces - or more knotted pallet pieces, that will stick on your rake 'tines', and set YOU to s.mold.ering status.

I found that the Lowes mulch this past year became very 'barky' & literally became bigger pieces by the end of the 1 year where it just literally lifted up & walked onto my walkways or blew onto my not mulched area.

So you are saying to rake & break it up to avoid this?

I noticed my local Walmart had some different colors of mulch for 1.97. I didn't catch what brand I was but I'm wondering how this would hold up for one year.

Not just to break it up, but to "cycle" it from finer, to rougher, and replace when too fine. Breaking it up regularly will also deter the molding effect, and even curb pest patterns.

I have had much better luck with HD mulch (this stuff) than I have with Lowes. Be aware that these prodcust differ regionally.

Thanks for posting this, I have been wtching for it.

They replace the regular price stuff with complete garbagee when it's on sale. The regular stuff is small pieces and light in color. The sale stuff they bring in is dark color and huge pieces, also looks like crap.
