I'm considering this product to treat cedar I'm using to build raised beds for my vegetable garden. Is this a safe product for that purpose? Are there any toxicological concerns for veggies or soil?

Answer: 
I don't know about the chemicals in the stain, but since it is oil based, it killed any grass under my fence and anywhere I sprayed the stain. So . I would cover any plants or soil to prevent any contamination. The stain worked well on my flowerboxes, with good results if you protect the soil. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Depends if it is a B/B, picket, solid etc. Sq ft is in the specs. If you are doing a B/B, then you can plan on using 50-75% more to get all sides. Let the fence age at least 6 months to dry out and put it on heavy.

Answer: 
Multiply your fence height by your fence length and then multiply that number by two. Then look at the specifications for the stain and see what it says is the coverage area for the stain. Take the product of your height x length x 2 calculation and divide it by the coverage area for the stain. This is the number of cans of stain you will need.

Answer: 
Yes, it is in stock in the paint area with the other staining products. I found that it was best to perform an online search to make sure my local store had the color I selected in stock. I purchased 3 5-gallon buckets which was all that was in stock at that time. My next purchase of 6 5-gallon buckets was performed online and had I had it delivered to my door by UPS.

Answer: 
I think some stores carry it, I have 2 Home Depots close to me in the suburbs of Chicago and neither one stocked it. I had to order it online and have it shipped to my house. I have a summer home in Wisconsin which is where I used the product on my deck, porch, and picnic table.

5 gal. Natural Cedar Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I am a senior woman and had no trouble applying this product with a small roller and china bristle brushes on 110 feet of fence. I used the cedar color which is nice but knots do stand out since it is a medium shade. I liked the rustic look. The stain goes on nicely and seemed to dry quickly on my new dry pressure treated soft wood. I have had several compliments .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best for a great looking cedar fence Hands down the best for a natural looking (non-painted) cedar fence. Goes on super easy with a sprayer. I used a basic Wagner and did 3 coats on 300 linear feet of fencing, front and back, in about an hour and a half. The product looks amazing and since it actually soaks into the wood you don't get any peeling or cracking. Still looks amazing almost 2 years later. I don't anticipate having to re-stain for a while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Stain This is excellent If you have preped the surface correcty if not you won't be happy but if you want a professional looking job make sure you prep it looks great on not previous stained or painted surfaces and this penetrates fast you don't need a lot either a little goes a long way it doesn't run or leave start stop marks The only bummer is you must order on line I wish the store carried it in house stock but shopping is free and it's around 3 day wait but it gives you that much more time to prep your surface

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wood stain This product was used on a cedar fence and was very easy to apply. After staining one side of my fence, the product was absorbed into the wood so well that the knot holes were very pronounced and darker on the opposite side. This indicated to me that the stain really penetrates the wood as advertised. Great product, it requires two coats but was easy to apply with a deck pump-up sprayer. I found that I needed utilize a deck sprayer because the nozzles of most sprayers are too small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product So Far I can't vouch for the longevity of this product, but it's fairly easy to apply. It's only been on a month or so. One thing we did was use a garden sprayer and it made it go faster than brushing. We used a brush to get on the tops of the boards; we were afraid of overspraying on the neighbor's house. We have large rock all around the base of our fence and it turned oily and brown, so covering any unwanted surface is a must. It seems quite expensive, as it'll take (2) 5 gallon jugs to do our fence, both sides. At $150 for a 5 gal jug that's spendy. However, if it lasts as long as it says it will, I could probably justify the price.

I stained my cedar deck with benches being stained first. I got a little bit a dripping but once the deck was sealed no problems what so ever. I brushed the stain in just to make sure I got in every nook and cranny and did not have a single issue. I have had it stained now for three weeks and have had many compliments on how beautiful it looks!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS USELESS PRODUCT Bought August 2016. After extensive research we decided on this product for our 500sf wood deck. Our deck is 4 years & is sealed regularly. We just wanted to not need to seal every year (using Thompsons) My Husband cleaned the deck then hand painted it on TWO COATS & this took several weekends of hard work. We attempted to do our research to get the stain that will last the longest. This product got amazing reviews. Once it was all applied as per instructions the stain COLOR itself looks good. High hopes at this point. Now we noticed at the first rain 1 month in that the water did NOT bead off at all. Weird? Even the Thompsons the water beads for a few months. Its now October...2mo after & its growing algae already & its wearing off in most areas as well. We are so disappointed in this product & waste of HARD work & the $$ spent. We dont know how so many others had such a great experience? Maybe we just got a bad batch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT This product does exactly what it says it can do. I was happy with one coat, but it said I should do two. The color is perfect and it went on so easy without any streaks. Very happy with the outcome and would recommend to anybody.
