How Long Will
Landscape timbers allow homeowners to transform their unattractive exterior into an outstanding landscaping achievement. However, durability may sometimes be an issue.
When treated, landscape timbers will last over 7 years before you will need to replace them. Some may even last as long as 20-40 years.
Some people say untreated variants will last for TWO YEARS before you notice any sign of rot, while others say it lasts longer.
Treated landscape timbers are not safe for garden use. When you use landscape timbers for raised beds or garden edges, remember they are in constant contact with the soil.
Cedar, redwood, and cypress are ideal choices for landscaping. But the most rot-resistant and most durable woods are those that are pressure-treated and eco-friendly.
