staining a wood walkway


We have a wood walkway that sits on the ground at our cabin. The wood is a year old and is treated. I would like to stain it but wonder about the moisture since it is on the ground.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I'm not sure what you mean by moisture. From the stain?
Or the wood is already moist and how will that affect the staining process?

staining a wood walkway


Hi-
Is it possible to stain a wood walkway that is made of treated lumber if it in a very moist environment (next to a lake).
I would like some color on it but worry that nothing will penetrate.

As long as the wood surface is dry, I don't think there will be a problem, however, I'd be inclined to test on a scrap if available, or a spot not easily seen. Others here may have other opinions and/or ideas.

I think you'll be fine. SW Deckscapes. Semi-Transparent colors or the Toner.
