Project looks great. Timbers look nice and really dress up the area. I ordered online and picked up in store which I have done many times however I would suggest that when it comes to lumber you should pick it out yourself. Two of the timbers were badly warped and i had to cut parts out to make it fit. I used heavy gauge galvanized nails to hold them together and rebar driven into the ground to hold everything in place.

great for a tree fort
I waited for the timbers to go on sale once that happened I went to work building my son a log cabin tree fort. To keep the cost down I cut all the timbers in half long ways I used 4" screws and built it 4feet by 8feet to use all the lumber with little waist. The timbers give it that cool log cabin look and there pressure treated so it won't rot away in a few years. I used Cabot fireside cherry stain to make sure it will last. The roof is 3/4 pine tongue and groove I used a Thompson water seal on it and a clear caulk on the seams to make sure there is no leaks. The only bad thing is looking for strait boards

      looks great
      Needed to make a cheap but strong wall to hold back some dirt. I did not think it would look this good i used spax lag t-star 1/4 x6 to hold them togeather so they wont shift on me. Then cut some 2x4s to stake in the ground and used 3in exterior screws to hold it to the board. Dug up some hostas from the woods in my back yard and it looks awesome.

        if you find strait ones they are great.
        I left these on the garage floor for a month. When i lifted them up there was mold under them. While assembling the retaining wall i noticed alot of these were not strait and some were bowed badly. Note: do not leave directly on concrete.

          Decent quality landscape timber
          I used this timber to frame out a flower box in my garden. The pieces in the store varied in quality and color so I had to dig through and find pieces that matched and were in decent shape. But otherwise the wood was uniform in shape and size. I am very happy with the look and it was an easy way to spruce up the look of my garden.

          Landscape boarder
          Replaced my landscape timber in front yard at roadway. Used 6 in nails, roofing tar between each timber to seal and 2 ft rebarb to secure in ground. I went 5 high. Make sure you pencil mark on the outside of each timber where you nailed together to make the spot. This is important so when you go to the next row you don't nail the same location. Also, the roofing tar covers easy with the brown/gold paint. I drilled threw the timbers with a 1/4 long drill bit and then placed on ground and hammered into ground on location.

          Just select the straight ones and go
          Let me first say the value makes a big difference. When a THD competitor put them on sale, I went to HD.COM to see my local store's price and was happy to see my store had a special buy pricing that matched the competitor and saved me 50%. THD came through for me as usual and can for you if you use HD.COM to shop wisely, do your research and jump on value offers. Some reviews speak to the timbers not being straight. While it is the nature of these timbers to warp, I find if you select straight ones in the store they are more likely to stay straighter in you landscaping. But when you pay the discounted price that I paid, I don't mind if some warp. When I do get one with excessive warping, I just cut the 8' timber in half and the warp is less noticeable. I also lay mine on the ground next to my grass which is higher, which I think is better than burying a little which may accelerate the rotting some reviews mention. These timbers last for years for me in Southeast Florida with twice weekly sprinklers and the summer rains of Florida. The best part is how nice they make the yard look. They really make the landscaping pop out.

          Great for fencing!
          I bought these on sale at HD to use as the rails for my horse pasture. They were cheaper than 2x4s and look awesome. Plus, they're treated so I can't see why they won't last for a long time. I used 4x4s as the posts for the fence. Get tons of compliments on it.

          Utility House
          In 2013 I built a 240 two story utility house. With the exception of the pressure treated wood I used fastened to the concrete footing, and the Four (4) 2" x 6" x 20' that were used to support the roof and the second floor, all of my framing and trim were cut from these landscape timbers. I am a drafter, therefore i did not build this from the hip, I had a blueprint and I analyzed it thoroughly before the construction began. I am also a brick mason by trade. I stepped into the unknown with this project and i am proud of the result. I have never built anything of this magnitude before. When you believe in yourself, anything is possible. I'd like to thank Ms Rosemary Mikel of Fresno California for her assistance with the construction while on vacation and her home depot credit card. With a table saw and some imagination and at a price of 1.50 each, how can one go wrong. I can only upload 6 photos, therefore I will attempt to reveal the most important stages of the construction. All of the materials used for this project were purchased from Home Depot

          Great for raised garden beds
          The landscape timbers were great for making our raised garden beds. The timbers were straight and not weathered. These were ordered on-line to pick-up in store and the timbers, with the rest of the order, were ready when we got to the store about a 1/2 hour later.

          Great for intended purpose
          Used for building a 19' x 2' x 30" planted box/downspout french drain. Bought full pallet, and used most of them. Overall quality is very good, with only a small percentage of boards out of acceptable quality/size conformity. As expected, I did get a few bad boards, but simply salvaged the usable portions for use as inner bracing etc. Even though these are not intended for framing purposes, most were of high enough quality for use beyond the intended purpose. Very strong wood held screws extremely well. I opted to used 5" Ledger Lock screws, as they have longer thread area for greater holding strength. When using high power drills, restraint must be used to prevent screws from pulling through timbers, as these are normally very green, and wet from soaking with rot treatment. Timbers cut cleanly with 10" miter saw. Drilled cleanly with 3/4" Forstner bit for countersink holes, and required no pilot holes to install screws. Only had one board from an entire pallet that split from screw insertion. The design of these timbers, having two rounded sides and two flat sides, makes installation easy even for novice installers. End effect is a professional looking installation, with great asthetics, great strength, stable and reliable dimensional integrity, easy workability and extremely low waste. Would highly recommend this product for anyone with even the most basic woodworking skills. If you can lay out the first course square, level and true . . . you will end up with a nice end result.
