Pecky Cedar for Garden Boxes and Raised Beds
Protect your precious seedlings from weeds and pests with raised beds and garden boxes, which will allow you to control soil composition, improve drainage as well as provide a barrier from nasty critters.
Pecky cedar is ideal for this type of gardening project. Unlike other cedar products, this lumber features areas or pockets of decayed wood caused by the living tree’s advanced stages of rot or fungus. Pecky cedar timbers are perfect for garden boxes, boardwalks, fences or other outdoor projects.
This type of wood will give your garden a unique character because of the pockets of decayed wood. Fret not, there is no further decay as the process stops once the tree is cut down. Like other cedar products, this is long-lasting and cost-effective. It will also add a visually interesting component to your garden. Pecky cedar can last a decade without any treatment.
Western Red Cedar for Garden Fences
Cedar is known for its time-tested strength and durability. It is naturally resistant to elements and remains dimensionally stable even when exposed to moisture. It also holds very well in harsh weather conditions. Meaning, it doesn’t readily warp, shrink, or split.
Cedar is a premium choice for garden fencing. Cedar fences give gardens an aesthetic appearance and also enriches it with that distinct and pleasant aroma of theirs that is due to their natural oils and phenols. Those substances also make cedar resistant to rot, insects, and fungal attacks. It is one of the most durable timbers available today, guaranteed to last for several years with very little maintenance.
Shiplap Cladding for Garden Sheds
A popular choice of lumber for garden shed cladding. Their rabbet or notch cut on both edges of the board allows it to be easily overlapped. This feature also provides superior protection against harsh weather conditions.
Shiplap cladding requires little to no finishing touches. And you can paint it white to make your garden shed look elegant with an effortless design. Additionally, white combines well with other colors like black and nature green to form a stunning high contrast look. Isn’t that perfect for a garden shed?
