About This Product

Pressure-Treated lumber is treated for protection against termites and rot. Ideal for a variety of applications including decks, play sets, landscaping, and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. When used properly it is both safe and environmentally friendly.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.

  • Made of southern yellow pine
  • Can be used in ground contact applications
  • 2 in. x 6 in. x 4 ft.
  • Pressure treated for long life
  • Can be painted or stained to suit your preference
  • WeatherShield includes water repellant in the treatment process
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.
  • Premium grade lumber should be used when small knots are the desired appearance for your lumber project
  • Premium grade is a high-quality lumber that has smaller and fewer knots.

Q:Is this safe to use for a raised vegetable garden bed?
by|May 5, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Margaret, Yes. Treated timbers used to construct raised vegetable gardens and flowerbeds are popular and practical. Scientific tests have proven there is no significant uptake of preservatives into plants. And treated wood used for tomato stakes, flowerbed edging, planters, retaining walls, trellises and compost bins have the added advantage of lifetime durability.

    Q:How long does the wood take to dry before I can paint it?
    by|Jan 17, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Paul, While ProWood provides a surface that is easy to paint, we do not recommend painting it. However, if your decorative decisions call for paint, make sure the wood is dry before application. (Pour some water over the surface. Remember, if it beads, wait; if it is quickly absorbed into the wood, it's ready.)

          Best for raised beds!
          My new lower raised beds are made with this premium pressure treated wood... I'm absolutely certain they'll last longer than my old beds made from seconds and overstock lumber. They look so much better, and were easy to put together too!

            This board was cut in two to make supports for a yard bench seat. Four indents were drilled to keep the bench feet from sliding. Red cedar mulch (also from HD) was spread over the seating area to make a pleasant seating area and to hide the boards. Wood supports were chosen over concrete pads for stability reasons.
