Product Overview

These wood landscape timbers add a natural yet practical accent to any yard or garden. They make excellent and safe retainer walls, borders and planters. They can be painted or stained and are pressure-treated to withstand termites, fungi and rot.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.
  • Pressure treated for long life
  • 1-year limited warranty
  • Wide variety of uses for landscaping projects
  • For landscape application only
  • Can be painted or stained to match your landscape
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.

At this moment the lumber market has gone ballistic in pricing. In SE PA $6.27 for 8" timbers. Price was 3-4 USD before the pandemic. I would hold the project until the market slows. HD has the best quality and price in my experience.

Can these be used as the horizontal brace on a fence panel?

Answers

red, Landscaping timbers are not intended to be used for structural members.That said, using them for horizontal fence bracing should be fine. Keep in mind that when freshly pressure treated they can be heavy. Be sure they are secured to both fence pickets and posts.

How much are regular 8 foot landscape timbers

Asked by Scott May 4, 2021
2
Answers

SCOTT, I am not sure why you would ask this, as the price is on the web page from which you posted this question. Maybe you are wondering what today's price is as the cost of all lumber products has been going up due to a number of factors including availability,due to demand and shortage of truck drivers. When I answered this question the price in Cary,NC was $5.37

ROT QUICKLY
I have used "treated" landscape timbers for 40 yrs and they normally last a long time...15-20 yrs. More recently, I installed 55 of them for different landscape projects. Many are rotting within 4-5 years. While they are "pressure treated" and rated for ground contact, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT USING THEM!! I am now going to tear them all out and replace with decorative retaining wall blocks made of concrete. The cost will be much more initially but less in the long run if I have to replace timbers every 4-5 years....not to mention all of the work to replace them that often. VERY DISAPPOINTED. I am assuming they have changed the pressure treatment from years ago, probably due to environment, which is ok. However, they really should NOT state they are rated for ground contact or at least put info in there that, depending on conditions, they may only last 4-5 years.
