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.
The "8 Ft. Landscape Timber" is listed as "Pressure Treated for long life" on HomeDepot.com. Check your local Home Depot store on the internet for availability.
They are unpainted
NO . you need treaded lumber that's made for ground contact.
Ray I would give your local home depot call the``ll be glad to help with that question.
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.
Bev: The other lengths are 2 3/4" high x 4 1/4" wide. Please note the piece is cut into a rough oval so the 4 1/4" size is more like a maximum width/ Bones
Debbie they actually vary a small amount, especially after being in the weather. My largest piece measured 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". "Bones"
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
My familiarity of a unit as a measurement unit is lacking. The best way to ensure you have what you need to measure according to your current project.
