Preventative Maintenance Plan

1. Depending on the location of your outdoor project with regard to direct sun exposure, foliage coverage, etc., it may be sufficient to clean/brighten and recoat every two years. 2. If you decide to wait two or more years to perform your next cleaning/brightening, you may want to use a power washer. Be sure that the cleaner/brightener you use contains a mildewcide.

Choosing The Right Stain Or Paint

When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.

Paint or Stain Tips

If you desire to paint or stain the treated wood project, it is important that the wood be dry enough to accept a coating. The best way to determine if the wood is sufficiently dry to paint or stain is to sprinkle droplets of water onto the wood. If the water droplets are absorbed, the wood is ready to be painted or stained. If the water droplets bead on the surface of the wood, it is too wet. You should wait a few days before attempting to paint and stain the wood.

When your next project really matters, choose the right lumber for the job. Every attractive piece of cedar tone wood meets the highest standards for strength and appearance. This lumber is ideal for a variety of applications, including decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. When used properly, it's both safe and environmentally friendly.Treated wood is typically still wet when it’s delivered to The Home Depot or job site. As it dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length. As lumber dries, it may split, cup and warp. This is more likely to occur to occur in lower-grade boards, where knots and uneven grains are already present. Each piece of lumber is unique and carries physical characteristics that may include the following: knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling and/or splitting.
  • Manufactured from southern yellow pine, a renewable resource, for an eco-friendly choice
  • Pressure treated for ground contact use applications
  • 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft.
  • Features uniform thickness, density and cedar tone color with a smooth surface
  • Can be pained or stained
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.
  • Use #2 grade lumber when both appearance is not the most important to you project.
  • May have wane (bark edge) on corners
  • Use #2 grade lumber when strength is the main feature you are looking for on your project.

Is this a good option for raised vegetable garden bed?

Asked by: Caps
It would be safer to use either cedar or redwood. There is always a risk with pressure treated lumber of some leaching into the soil. Okay for flowers, not for veggies.

4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Ground Contact SYP Cedar-Tone Pressure-Treated Timber is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 43.

Here is the SAD fact about this NEW?? product.1--The reddish STAIN comes off on your hands--wear gloves, always!I did not realize this--that evening I was having all sorts of heart beat issues!The 2 x 4's seem to hold onto the stain a bit longer--but still fade within a week!2-These are way too heavy-water soaked- when first loading.I left one out in the sun.The next day the thing was almost white and the weight has decreased!The style varies within the stack: one set has 2 corners that are beveled- another has all 4 corners without the bevel. If these DRY OUT that fast- it may be better just to buy the green ones and try to stain them!NOT IMPRESSED!
