Product Overview

For your next outdoor project consider using creosote-treated railroad ties. This genuine railroad tie work well for any number of landscaping and garden projects. However, these authentic used ties should not be expected to be defect-free on all four sides.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.
  • Can be used for nonstructural earth-retaining applications such as garden borders and more
  • Can also be used as flower boxes and fence posts
  • Charming rustic appearance
  • Uniform size, solid and straight
  • Treated for long lasting performance
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.

I got 4 of these and 3/4 were in good shape. But one of them was almost completely rotted out in the middle. It was essentially useless so I now have to find a way to dispose of it since it’s texhnicaly a hazardous item due to the chemicals in them. Also, they smell SO strongly of the chemical for a few weeks. Luckily the smell has died down a lot recently. I think I’d buy them again, I’d just pay close attention to what they’re loading in my vehicle. We used them for a sand pit
