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

Questions & Answers

can these be used for fence post?

can these be used for fence post?
Asked by: willy
Most of mine have lasted 7 years (in Wisconsin) without rotting out. Only one out of 24 posts have rotted at ground level. If you don't mind replacing them every 5 - 10 years, they're much less expensive than 5-inch round CCA treated posts ($4.xx vs $12.xx). Woodpeckers have been my biggest problem. About 1/3 need to be replaced due to woodpecker damage. They didn't touch the posts until about a year ago, but have really messed them up in the past year. The little snots have also attacked my 5" round posts, so no benefit there. Don't use cement or concrete to backfill the holes around the posts. That usually causes rot. Backfill with dry sand and include a 2-inch layer of sand at the bottom of the hole. Backfill a foot at a time and vibrate the post to get the sand to settle. Then add another layer of sand. I've been using this method for 40 years, and it works great. This really prolongs the life of the wood post, and locks it in place as solidly as concrete.

Can these be used to create a raised veggie garden?

Can these be used to create a raised veggie garden?
Asked by: Oldgamer80
I cut a piece of felt paper and lay the landscape timber on that. The felt paper keeps the wood from rotting and it also prevents chemicals from leaching into the surrounding ground. If I am stacking them on top of each other and throwing dirt against them in the garden I lay the timber on the felt paper and pull it up on the side and staple it, keeping the dirt from coming in contact with the timber. I then stain the side that's showing. I built one of my water features out of landscape timbers using the method I described and it's solid.

I am replacing some of these that are over 25 years old due to rot. How in the world do you get that big spike loose?
Asked by: DYI
Use a saws-all with metal blade to cut through the spikes or pry apart with 4 foot pry bar. If replacing the entire area, use a saws-all with aggressive wood blade and just cut into movable pieces.

Do you need to pre drill the timbers when using the 10” or 12” spike to connect the timbers?

Do you need to pre drill the timbers when using the 10” or 12” spike to connect the timbers?
Asked by: TOP
Don't need to but sure makes it easier and guarantees against a split. I only drill the top timber not the one below it.
