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: 
I don't know, I would have to read the label on the can. I finished putting down the second coat and about 2 hours later it started to sprinkle rain. The water just beaded up on the deck. With it being oil based stain I don't think you have to wait very long.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 104 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stain for the price So far, the stain is holding up but i am sure i will have to re-stain in two years time. the Redwood cedar is new and does have some mill type waxy feel to it, some parts of the stain did not stain well but i knew this going in, i just wanted it protected. i will power wash the deck this fall and will re-stain. the color is right on ( Cedar ) and it goes on great with a staining pad. Don't use too much, it will cover easily. Something to note, the stain does take some time to dry, and when it is dry you do feel some oiliness when you walk on the deck but after a few days you no longer feel that. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best stain ever! We purchased this product to stain our newly built fence after receiving a quote for $2000. The stain was so easy to use. One coat and beautiful! A year later the fence looks just as good. We purchased more this year for our deck. We used another stain several years ago on it and it began flaking immediately. The deck turned out equally as good! Very happy with this product! July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good! After doing quite a bit of research, I finally settled on Ready Seal for our deck and railings. I've tried several acrylic products in the past, and they inevitably peel, despite proper preparation and application. After getting frustrated over the years, I decided to go back to an oil based product. I was pleasantly surprised by this stain. It goes on VERY easy, (I rolled the deck and brushed the railings), and it has excellent coverage. The color is rich, but it definitely needed a second coat to get the true color. The stain has only been on for about 2-3 weeks, and as expected the water is simply sitting on the surface of our 20 year old deck when it rains. We'll see how long it lasts, but so far, so good! It looks great and was super easy to apply! June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Truly Foolproof Our deck had not been cleaned and sealed in several years, and it showed it. After power washing and allowing the surface to dry, I applied what turned out to be the first coat of Ready Seal. I had hoped to get by with a single coat, but the wood was so porous and dry, that I knew it was going to take two coats to get the coverage I wanted. Even with a day or two of rain and drying between coats, the seal covered smoothly and evenly and showed absolutely no areas of inconsistency between the two applications. Then, it rained again right after the second coat, with still no adverse effects. Now that it has had a couple of weeks to fully soak in and cure over several sunny days, I couldn't be more pleased with the product. The only two things I would note. First, if you're going to apply it with a pump sprayer, which I did, be sure to use a sprayer with sufficient pressure to actually spray the seal. It is just thick enough to require a good sprayer to actually "spray." Otherwise it just dribbles. (FYI: I started with a new Deck & Home Sprayer, and it was totally insufficient for the task. Don't be misled by the name of that sprayer.) Second, if your wood is old and weathered like mine, it will most likely finish darker than the color samples of the Natural Cedar. It is not unattractive -- just darker than if were used on newer wood. I am extremely pleased. See before and after photos attaced. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Professional results, reasonable price. I have used many different stains and sealers on many different types of wood on many different decks and fences and I have to say this is the easiest product to work with. The product brushes and sprays very easy and there truly are no lap marks even when there are days between applications. The material is easy to clean up and the results are beautiful. I am very happy with this product. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stain! Love how this stain looks and covers. Wood looks great! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding product The first time we purchased this stain was directly from the company that makes it. It was expensive to have it shipped so I was glad when Home Depot started carrying it. I also save money per bucket by ordering thru Home Depot as well. We use this on our barns and it is a great product. It lasts for years. This is the second time we have applied it. I would highly recommend it. August 9, 2016
