For general structural or landscaping needs – we supply ACQ or CCA Pressure Treated Lumber that can be used as a non-leeching product for wood retaining walls, edging and tie-backs. Pressure Treated Lumber is chemically processed to withstand high-moisture and in-ground application and it the most common choice for cost effective landscaping and wood retaining wall solutions that require longevity but are not associated with organics such as vegetable gardens. While treatment processes have come a long way and the chemicals used are safer and kinder on the environment, we don’t recommend using Pressure Treated lumber for garden boxes which you intend to grow crops in. Yellow Cedar (see above) is ideally suited for this purpose and in most cases will last just as long as Pressure Treated wood without the chemicals.
Application when near water…
For Salt Water Docks require .40 CCA Treatment
If lumber is to be submerged in the water then you would require .60 CCA Treatment
Fresh water docks require ACQ Treated Lumber
