Preventative Maintenance Plan

1. Depending on the location of your outdoor project with regard to direct sun exposure, foliage coverage, etc., it may be sufficient to clean/brighten and recoat every two years. 2. If you decide to wait two or more years to perform your next cleaning/brightening, you may want to use a power washer. Be sure that the cleaner/brightener you use contains a mildewcide.

Choosing The Right Stain Or Paint

When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.

Paint or Stain Tips

If you desire to paint or stain the treated wood project, it is important that the wood be dry enough to accept a coating. The best way to determine if the wood is sufficiently dry to paint or stain is to sprinkle droplets of water onto the wood. If the water droplets are absorbed, the wood is ready to be painted or stained. If the water droplets bead on the surface of the wood, it is too wet. You should wait a few days before attempting to paint and stain the wood.

Questions & Answers

Is this safe to use in a raised garden?

Is this safe to use in a raised garden?
Asked by: pegster
https://www.extension.iastate.edu/smallfarms/toxicity-concerns-about-raised-bed-construction-materials https://www.finegardening.com/article/are-pressure-treated-woods-safe-in-garden-beds https://extension.oregonstate.edu/gardening/techniques/raised-bed-lumber-pressure-treated-safe For many years, using treated lumber in a garden bed was an absolute no-no, but things have changed. Unless you're fully committed to growing completely organically and eating nothing but home-grown veggies, you shouldn't have major concerns with using treated lumber. Do your own research online, there's plenty of opinions either way. But the truth is, arsenic is no longer used, copper is. The amount of copper leeching into the soil and to your veggies would be minimal, but there's steps you can take to reduce it even more. We can't all afford pricey cedar for our garden beds...

What type of nail (fastener) would I use using this wood for a garden bed (tomatoes)?

What type of nail (fastener) would I use using this wood for a garden bed (tomatoes)?
Asked by: JN
Personally, I would not use pressure treated lumber for making a raised vegetable bed because the chemicals in used in the wood will leach out. I would recommend using cedar or a similar type of wood that has a natural resistance to rot and insects. However, if you are insistent on using pressure treated lumber, I would recommend using deck screws of the appropriate length.
