Answer: 
Cedar is best but costly. You can use treated but it's best to line the walls with a heavy plastic sheathing stabled up ( not the floor) to avoid chemicals from the treated wood from leaching into your garden soil.

Answer: 
Hi Bill,
Thank you for your inquiry. The best wood for exterior gardens is Eastern White Cedar. You could use the 2x4x8 mentioned for framing to build the garden. I hope this was helpful. Thanks, BAnderson

Answer: 
Of all the woods available at The Home Depot, redwood and cedar
are the best for your application.
Redwood is slightly more insect- and rot-resistant, but is also the
most-expensive softwood available.

Answer: 
You will also want to seal / weather treat the wood immediately for an outdoor structure so that the wood does not pre-maturely rot or become a haven for various pests and preferably with concrete base for stability.

Yes, but you may need to double them up if you're using them as the main structure, or use them only as cross-bracing.
.
You can also use 4"x4" lumber for the main structure -- in cedar, Douglas-fir, or pressure-treated pine.

If you do use the kiln-dried/untreated 2x4s or the Douglas-fir 4x4s, seal them with a top-notch product like this: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Seal-Krete-1-gal-Multi-Surface-Water-Repellent-201001/203002727

If you use cedar or pressure-treated pine, you don't have to weather-seal them because they are already weather-resistant.

Be advised that not all H/D employees are store certified to cut down lumber ( trained in saw use ) but as a norm there is usually somebody working that can assist you. Also, if your having a quantity of pieces cut the store will usually have you pay for the lumber first and then inform you when your cut order will be available to be picked up should they not be able to cut a large order for you at that particular time. This is a nice service that H/D provides. Read Less

Answer: 
Since this is kiln-dried wood, you can safely stain it immediately. You can even stain it before installation if that makes the project easier. Just be sure the surface is dry and clear of dirt, oil, and sawdust. The Home Depot sells denatured alcohol for this purpose. (If you're wanting the cleanest, smoothest look: wipe the surface with denatured alcohol; allow it to dry; then then give it a light, Read More

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trying to figure out how this passed quality control... This review is really about poor quality control when i went to purchase a huge sum of these. I was immediately disappointed with Home Depot #2781 actually allowing Studs with Black Mold to be placed up for sale and ready for customer contact with there hands. I picked up several pieces of wood before realizing... wait that's mold! Inexcusable! May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best $185 ever spent! Here is an example of what I did with $185 worth of this lumber. Yes, I did need to hand pick the pieces so they were strait and had minimal knots in certain places.....but it was WELL worth it. In the sunlight, the reds in this wood really come out.......amazing This lumber is Kiln Dried, so no worries about cupping as if I had used Pressure Treated. 2 coats of stain, and 2 coats of Thompson's Water Seal.....done THANK YOU HOME DEPOT! April 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the money Absolutely worth the money paid for the lumber. I purchased exactly what I needed and every piece was without defect. Definitely 5 stars. August 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Using white woods for bed rails or bed post assembly I would not use any softwoods for this application. I would prefer teak or maple. March 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for interior walls First off if I was building load bearing walls or walls with lateral load I would go to the lumber yard and get Douglas fir larch or southern yellow pine not "white wood". Since I was building walls for a basement finish my main concern was with straightness. I had around 300 sticks of 8' and 10' delivered. I was surprised at the overall quality being as good as it was. Boards were straight very little crook. Some sticks had a small amount of twist that could be dealt with in areas that mattered. Sheet rock is up and walls look great. Kiln dried important. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New Fireplace - where once there was none. Studs were in good shape to both use to frame out area where fireplace would be covered in stone and heating unit could be installed. The left over lumber, along with a few additional pieces were used to make a custom mantle for the family. March 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stud wood is uneven I ordered 50 2x4x8 studs online to be pulled for later pickup in store. On pickup I rejected and replaced 6 of them for being warped. I have found in recent orders totaling well over 200 studs that the quality is uneven. Some studs are very light and some are very heavy. Some have huge end knots that fall out when nailing and there are knots that weaken the lateral strength of the wood. I really recommend not accepting any stud that looks like it is covered with crystals of any kind (they can appear white, yellow, orange, or clear). On these stud, some kind of deposit is left in the drying process and I find that these boards always split for several inches when nailing. I am sure that this uneven quality reflects more the quality of wood available in forests more than Home Depot handling. If you are ordering by the truckload for large projects, a few bad boards will be expected and they can be set aside to use where they don't matter such as for a scrap brace or short cuts. However, if you are needing every board to be useful, you really need to inspect your selection. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great firm stud for the price. easy to cut wood, great price and the product did its job. March 13, 2014
