Customer Questions & Answers

Which wood best for raised gardens?

Im looking to start raised gardens in my back yard. It is south facing but im unsure about which wood to use.
Asked by: Bill
It's not "wood" but you might consider a plastic or composite lumber. No rot, insects, or chemical leaching.

Can this be use for a exterior playground structure? And if yes what would be the best paint and or stain sealer to use?

It wont be going into the ground
Asked by: Jorge
Hi Jorge. You can, but it tends to start splitting out after a couple seasons in the weather. I use regular DF lumber when I build a playset. Predrilled for all fasteners, and unpainted or stained. Apply some Jasco wood preservative to the first foot or so of the bottom of the boards and anything in the ground. That will keep the bugs away for a few years.

Would untreated wood or pressure treated wood be better to build an enclosure for small animals?

Gerbils. Rats. Rabbits. Guinea Pigs. Hamsters. Ferrets. Mice. Any kind of reptiles.
Asked by: SingleMomwithson
No, the chemicals used on this treated wood are harmful to the earth it is laid on making it toxic and non eatable for both humans and animals i.e Rabbits and guinea pigs that custom to eat grass. Also just being around this wood over time is very harmful to living matter. Use non treated wood and if this is being used in exterior locations use a sealer on the wood that is not harmful to animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

I would like to think that if I have Home Depot pull my order the would give me straight and not twisted lumber. Thats why I put my trust in you to pull the best lumber you have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality lumber I purchased these to make the frame for a gate a gate I was building. I like that the kiln dried lumber is really straight and will stay that way once it’s in place and braced by the fence brackets and pickets. I also like the light weight of the kiln dried lumber for this application. These are quality 2x4’s and will think of these first the next fence/gate project I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad wood choices Normally I get fine pieces from this store but lately the choices have been bent/beat wood. Hoping for a change before my next project.
