What material do I use to make a raised garden

Asked by IDella March 14, 2021
3
Answers

Use pressure treated lumber. It is far less expensive than cedar or redwood, and IT IS SAFE FOR GARDEN BEDS. There is a lingering misconception that pressure-treated wood is unsafe for garden beds, due to the chemicals used in treating the lumber leaching out into the soil, then being absorbed by the plants, then eaten by humans. This WAS actually once true, until 2003. Then, the entire industry, following government recommendations, began using chemicals to pressure treat wood that are far safer and have been proven time and again in scientific studies to be safe for such uses as garden beds. So when you hear someone caution you not to use p.t. wood in garden beds, their information is nearly 20 years out of date! Here is a link to one of the many online articles that discusses this: https://www.naturalhandyman.com/iip/infxtra/infptforraisedgardens.html Also, if you're building garden beds, you'll probably want to use at least 2 x 8" lumber, not 2 x 4", which isn't really thick enough to load a good amount of soil into. Hope this helps.

Can you use this for earth to wood contact

Asked by Tod44eric January 13, 2019

Answers

This wood has not been pressure treated for exterior use.  I suggest considering a pressure treated product with a "Ground Contact" use classification.  Call your local store and they can assist you with selecting the proper product.

Is this considered the same as "Select Structural" grade lumber?

Asked by karl December 1, 2018

Answers

Absolutely not. “Select Structural” is the highest rating for Douglas Fir dimension lumber; “Standard” is the second lowest, with “Utility” being the lowest. “Construction”, “Stud”, “No3”, “No2”, “No1”, “No1 & Btr”, and “Select Structural” are all of higher grade than “Standard”, per the American Wood Council, National Design Specification, which is the basis for the wood section of building codes in the United States.

is this good for raised garden beds on top of a weed cloth?

Asked by GrocerCropper September 4, 2018

Answers

I personally would use this over Pressure Treated because it doesn't have the chemicals. Just know that it will decay with time and you will have to replace the wood at some point. The choice is yours and if you don't really care or won't be using it for edibles then I'd suggest pressure treated.

These are extremely wet. I wouldn't drywall until they dry. I set mine on a hardwood floor overnight and they left a condensation puddle and there was black mold already. Also they will warp as they dry!

I purcahed a few of these for bracing boards for a new fence. For this, they worked well as I wasn’t concerned about grade or appearance. I ended up needing one to finish the fence as I had run out of cedar. They worked well for this.

Would almost have to recommend relative to overall quality of timber these days, pricing really hurts vs. quality. But that's what you get when you have local housing boom along with 12-14 months of a Pandemic.
