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.

Garbage.
I bought 20 of these for landscape borders four years ago. All have rotted to the point of disappearing. Don't buy these.

    This product was great. The timber was cut straight and leveled. I have seen where some boards are warped but I did not have this problem.

      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

            Read the specifications. They only use .01 lbs/cu ft of preservative in these. That means, as a previous review noted, they will rot out very quickly. Using the terminology "landscape timber" is very misleading; I'm not sure what landscape application these would be suitable for. I am having to redo all the planting beds I built.

              Poor quality. Do not understand the reason but timbers started warping and cracking almost immediately. Hard to maintain a straight line or to stack as a result. Would not purchase again.

              not as advertised online
              The actual dimensions are 2 3/4 by 4 inches give or take. The wood is in poor condition as well. For the price though that's ok I guess. Had to re measure my blueprint after purchase.

                Home Depot used to have a good quality Timber. But these are garbage. They are 85% warped and twisted you couldn't build anything out of the if you wanted. The mill work varies 1" from front to back. Unfortunately i have gone to Lowe's now for my timbers. This is my experience from Wichita Falls TX. Please get better lumber Home Depot. I don't like Lowe's, but i cant buy stuff like this.

                  They Rot.
                  I used 15 of these for a garden enclosure. Within 4 years, every one started to rot. At least half have actually fallen apart. There is no way these are treated.
