Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gettingthingsdone looks great
Needed to make a cheap but strong wall to hold back some dirt. I did not think it would look this good i used spax lag t-star 1/4 x6 to hold them togeather so they wont shift on me. Then cut some 2x4s to stake in the ground and used 3in exterior screws to hold it to the board. Dug up some hostas from the woods in my back yard and it looks awesome.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bookerb1047 if you find strait ones they are great.
I left these on the garage floor for a month. When i lifted them up there was mold under them. While assembling the retaining wall i noticed alot of these were not strait and some were bowed badly. Note: do not leave directly on concrete.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ibelimb Decent quality landscape timber
I used this timber to frame out a flower box in my garden. The pieces in the store varied in quality and color so I had to dig through and find pieces that matched and were in decent shape. But otherwise the wood was uniform in shape and size. I am very happy with the look and it was an easy way to spruce up the look of my garden.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SOULADY Poorly described landscape timbers
The Home Depot description of these landscape timbers are incorrect. They are not intended for ground contact....read the specifications. They are for cosmetic use only and will quickly rot if left in contact with soil and mulch. Home Depot personnel need to change their description and advise customers not to let them come in contact with soil.

Replaced my landscape timber in front yard at roadway. Used 6 in nails, roofing tar between each timber to seal and 2 ft rebarb to secure in ground. I went 5 high. Make sure you pencil mark on the outside of each timber where you nailed together to make the spot. This is important so when you go to the next row you don't nail the same location. Also, the roofing tar covers easy with the brown/gold paint. I drilled threw the timbers with a 1/4 long drill bit and then placed on ground and hammered into ground on location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TommaDude Not The Best Quality
I bought 12 of these timbers for gardening purposes. I had to sort through the inventory to make sure they were reasonably straight. Disappointed in the consistency of the planed sides. Some were evenly planed on both sides, some were narrower on one side, wider on the other. Some of the timbers were split badly and the moisture content varied greatly. I'm hoping the "wetter" ones won't bow or twist as they dry out. The only reason I purchased these is because I only have a hatchback and not a truck and the HD store is only 5 minutes from my home.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by baaahhramu603 Not as good as Lowes...
My local home depot ran out of landscaping timbers so I went to lowes to get the rest of what i needed. I was using these timbers to build 5 raised vegetables gardens. I built the first two gardens with the lowes wood and the other 3 with home depot wood. Lowes timbers were much drier, a third the weight and more consistent in shape, also the wood was softer so it was easy to screw together. A month has gone by and the home depot gardens are splitting like crazy and the Lowes ones haven't split at all. Also HD'S landscaping timbers are smaller in diameter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3242 Overall, a good buy
Bot 30 for use as garden boxes after I called HD and it was confirmed they are safe for veg gardens. Per reviews, I coated bottom timber with plastic roof cement. Actual size was 3 1/4" rounded edge to rounded edge, 2 1/2" flat side to flat side, and 95 1/2" length, not full 8'. I ordered on-line, order was ready for p/up next day, and only 1 of the 30 had any significant bow (about 2' could not be used). Seem comparable to other stores' product, but the $1.98 sale price made these really good buy.
