Answer: 
It's not "wood" but you might consider a plastic or composite lumber. No rot, insects, or chemical leaching.

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.

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: 
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.

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.

Hi, SingleMomWithSon.
As long as the lumber is not going to have ground contact, or be in constant contact with moist organic material (e.g; rabbit poo) you can use untreated lumber.
Treated lumber is rot and insect resistant. The chemicals that are impregnated into the wood are very distasteful to insects and repels moisture thus preventing dry rot.

Answer: 
UNTREATED !!!!! The chemicals in treated wood can kill or cause severe illness to both humans and animals situationallly especially if gnawed upon. Cedar is usually nice due to the smell but some animals like to chew on that a bit because of it and it is a soft wood and easy to work with.

Hi SingleMomwithson.
Thank you for your great question.
Building your enclosure with untreated wood is a healthier alternative than using the pressure treated wood. The pressure treated lumber is treated with Copper Azole and can produce dangerous carcinogens when cutting, sanding or drilling into it.
For your health, your son’s health and for the health of the animals you will want to house in your structure, the untreated wood will be safer alternative. Use concrete piers on the legs of the structure to raise them of the ground.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

It depends on the mill but typical counts for 2x4x96 are 192 or 208. I would advise contacting your local Home Depot and speaking with a lumber or Pro associate.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 57 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2x4 some twisted and warped but overall good.......... October 4, 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 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 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
