Inferior Landscape Timbers
I am in the process of doing some landscaping and I need several Landscape timbers. I have checked with four different stores and none of the timbers I looked at are treated for "soil contact":no:
What is the point of buying LT that are not treated for insect and rot damage???
I wonder how many people have noticed this because they were selling several every day:(
Can a person buy Landscape Timbers that you can place on the ground??

What kind of wood were they?

Most LT that I have dealt with are pine, I assume these are. The end tag states that they are treated but not pressure treated---whatever that means---:huh:

Giles, what you might want to consider is using a composite timber. Guaranteed not to rot. They are alittle more expensive then standard pressure treated timbers but will last a life time.
