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"
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??

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---

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.
