Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tegdirb76 I'm telling everyone I know about it!
So glad we found this product. Really easy to use - just mix powder with 1 gallon of water. It's non-toxic, no nasty fumes and cleans up with water. It's also about half the cost of a traditional stain! We used it to pre-treat our boards before building raised veggie garden beds.
A helpful tip: You can bring your mixed product (buy an empty paint can to simplify things) to the paint department and have them tint it using a "quick dispense" tint, with any color you want. They don't even charge for it. We used the color "cedar" because we didn't want the grey/patina look.

The package directions were easy to follow and worked perfectly. EcoWood covered all my wood projects (4 4 x 9 foot garden beds). They look great in the garden!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mel Wasn't what I expected
I misunderstood how this product would work. I was trying to make pine look like old barnwood quickly. It ages wood over time and protects it. Wasn't what I needed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tamara Warning: Do not use on wood that you'll be walking or sitting on if you have it tinted.
Warning: Do not use on wood that you'll be walking or sitting on if you have it tinted. We had ours tinted cedar tone and used it on a very large deck. Now, even after several weeks, whenever people walk on it, we have tracks of cedar tone tint showing up on the bottom of feet, shoes, and therefore, ends up leaving a trail leading into the house on the carpet. Just yesterday, my daughter had friends over. They were sitting on the deck, and the bottom of their shorts were stained in cedar tone. Very frustrating. Our little, white Westie dog can't even be out on the deck, because he turns cedar tone. We really have a mess on our hands. Praying this problem diminishes over time. As other reviews have indicated, the real test and results of this product cannot be determined at this point. Only time will tell. I do know that I'll never use it on wood where there is traffic again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by williewin Works Great!
I used this on some fresh rough-cut cedar paneling that is on the exterior of my garden shed, and for three garden boxes (also cedar). I ended up using only about 2/3 the amount of the Eco-Wood Treatment that the instructions said it would cover (so it covers more than they say it will). I bought 3 boxes but only used 2. I applied one coat with a tank sprayer. I could see results within about 10 minutes. The color initially came in as a grey with a green tint. The green has faded over the past couple weeks to more of a grey/brown. It is perfect! I may end up doing one more application on the garden boxes because the wood is much smoother and it didn't absorb the treatment as well as the shed. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by al Easy to use and beautiful dark grey finish.
Easy to apply, and in a few days in the sun, it has a great grey finish. Bought more to use in the future.

We love how easy this was to mix up and apply! I had been looking for wood treatments that would be safe to use on my veggie garden bed and everything else I'd found was five times as expensive. I love how the cedar looks now. I only purchased this a couple of months ago, so I can't say how well it works in the long-term, but we are very happy as of now!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by otentik Eco Stain just needs some time to age
Works just as described however it takes time outside to fully develop. We used it for trade show booth and looked fantastic after a week outside not a day before. Its been outside for a month now and looks like old wood left out in the desert even better than anticipated.
