Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Not Worth It
Spent almost an hour in the store picking through the pile. I picked the least warped, twisted, and cracked beams I could find. Even the good ones were almost unusable. I wanted to stack them 3-high. I bolted them together with lag screws, and ran 2-ft rebar in the ground at intervals. They still look twisted, and continue to crack.

I found only one timber out of the two giant piles that wasn't twisted, cracked in multiple places, covered in sap, or all of the above. I would have thought this was just my local store but the other reviews seem to indicate a company wide problem. You'll have to search to find decent ones.

cheap and great if you they are temporary. Putting wood on the ground is asking for trouble. In 2 years, had to toss them since they were all full of live termites. Replaced with bricks which will outlive me.

I only purchased these because my yard was already landscaped with this type and major repairs were required and I wasn't able to start over with different material. This year these timbers are in horrible shape. They are warped, twisted, split, and pitchy. Add to those flaws that this year all the stores have raised the prices considerably and they are not a good choice. I recommend going a different way for a person starting fresh.

I have used this before and it rots out much to fast. Better off using 2x6 or 2x8 P.T. on its side. Use reabar to hold in place.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Babs 1/2 what they use to be
I have old landscape ties, some need replacing. Bought originals at HD, so thought i could find replacements there too. The ties now available are 1/2 the width of the old ones and every one had severe cracks. Junk that won't match what they sold in prior years.

Very easy order. I live 2 hours away from my Home Depot and ordered on line. When I got to the store, my order was neatly stacked waiting for me. I'm pleased!
