Answer: 
It can be used for a shed floor. However, it is not designed for direct ground contact. so it will need some type of frame (approved for "ground contact") under it. To clarify, there are two types of pressure treated lumber one is specifically rated for "ground contact", this is usually noted on the tag attached to end of the board.

Answer: 
If it's under a shed and isn't going to be used a lot, yes.
I'd still recommend to place some sort of vapor barrier. Essentially, you need the wood (even if it is pressure-treated and in a dry area).
Even raising the floor slightly, alongside using the vapor barrier (6mil plastic is fine for that), will give it a much longer life and prevent rot and decay from just placing it on the floor.

Answer: 
Yes. Pressure-treated lumber is ideal and safe for picnic tables, gardens, raised garden beds, fencing, shelters and more. Periodic maintenance (deck sealer) is important for a lasting deck surface.

Answer: 
16 inch on center will be sufficient provided you are going to run the decking perpendicular to the joists. However if you will be running it at a 45 (degree angle) you may want to consider 12 inch on center.

Answer: 
5/4 decking is actually 1” thick. If this is the product you plan to use (assuming it is southern yellow pine) the recommended spacing is 16 “ O. C. ¾” actual thickness PT southern yellow pine is not recommended for decking applications.

Rated 1.9 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rots out in less than 2 years We used these for a deck - they were put on 2x6 joists and had no ground contact, but rotted out in less than 2 years. Totally discouraging. I have many years of homebuilding experience and find the current PT wood totally useless - rots out in just a few years. This was the worst we have experienced. May 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WARPED & SHRANK! I installed these deck boards touching each other because i knew thew would shrink. i sealed it a few months later it looked ok. It really started shrinking when the weather turned warm. 10 months later, some have shrank up so bad there is 3/4" gap between them! I built a 1000 sq' curved deck. almost all of the ends have warped. it looks terrible, after all of my work i am so disgusted i don't even want to go out on the deck! September 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality I renovated my deck last summer (doubled the size), and though I would have preferred to use cedar decking, it just wasn't in the budget. So, I decided to use these 'higher end' pressure treated deck boards. Although I was unable to seal the boards before winter hit (due the required drying time of the lumber and uncooperative weather), they should have held up a lot better than they did! These boards have been installed for less than one year, but they look like they've been exposed to the elements for five times that long, due to the cracks, splits and checks (flaking)! The old decking that I removed had been in place for fifteen years, and had only been sealed once (the year after it was installed) and half of those boards were in better shape than some of these new ones are! I am extremely disappointed with this product, and I most certainly will not use it again! July 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by moldy faded wood Moldy faded wood with lumber ink stamps all over it On the convex side. Do you want this on your new deck? Lousy contractor mixed this garbage wood with Yellawood for shoddy deck board work he replaced. May 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Home Depot has the worst lumber BUYER BEWARE!!! We have built a deck with the standard and most recently with 5/4 IN. X 6 IN. X 16 FT. PREMIUM PRESSURE-TREATED LUMBER. This product was delivered extremely warped, cracked, split and several boards already had mold. we had to have Home Depot replace boards 3 times! Installing was difficult because of the inconsistencies, pre drilling made no difference, the wood splits anyway (we installed the wood while it was moist and not dry hoping to avoid splits). We will NEVER buy wood from Home Depot, there is no value since the quality is poor. This wood is supposed to be "premium" and pre-treated for water resistance, but our deck stopped beading water and is starting to mold (sunny location) in less than 2 months. August 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SOUTHERN YELLOW PINE IS JUNK NEVER USE THIS JUNK- IT WARPS-SPLITS-CRACKS- END CHECKS- GRAIN LIFTS. IT NEEDS TO BE STAINED OR PAINTED OR IT WILL LOOK JUNKY IN LESS THAN A YEAR. USE 5/4X6 CEDAR OR TIMBERTECH DECKING. CEDAR IS ONLY A LITTLE MORE $ AND ITS 10 X BETTER June 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awful!!!! The weathershield lineof pressure treated products as a whole is AWFUL! I've built 4 decks of varying sizes from 8x10 to a 550 square feet with all weathersheild lumber. As a contractor, I've built many things outdoors and have used many different outdoor products. By far this is the worst lumber I have ever used. It splits and shrinks very fast, yes even the 6x6's. It leaves the deck looking ratty and worn very quickly. I will not use this product for any of my outdoor products ever. Dissatisfied customers are not fun to deal with, and it's hard to be proud of any type of project when it ends up looking like garbage within a few weeks, even days of completion. I have not had this problem with any other type of pressure treated product. I would give this product no stars if I could. I have seen kiln dried lumber last longer outdoors. September 22, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Premium Decking - 2 thumbs up I used this premium decking to redeck a 25 year old 12 x 14 deck. I for the most part am not a fan of treated lumber but this decking was a #1. Very little warpage and the knots were nonexistant. I have used premium decking before and this was as good or better. I would recommend using the premium over the standard decking if you want a great looking deck. Its worth the few extra dollars to not have to deal with knots that usually fall out or are loose.
