Timber is a multi-functional material which can serve numerous purposes and functions in your garden. Most popularly, timber is often used to build deck spaces. A deck allows you living space to be extended outdoors amidst your hard gardening work. Timber can also be used to construct a retaining wall, which can level your garden or form the walls of a garden bed. Whilst these represent the most common timber products for gardens, timber comes in varying forms and could be the perfect solution for your garden’s needs.
What timber products are best suited for my gardens?
Hardwoods such as teaks and oaks are usually the most durable timber for outdoors and can be used for larger scale projects. Softwood products like cedar and pine can also survive outdoors. Deciding on the function you want your timber to serve can help you decide what level of durability you need from your timber. Timbers also come in different colours and textures which can compliment different garden environments and landscapes. Finally, timbers come at different price points. Establishing how much you are willing to spend in the construction of this project can help determine what timber options will suit your goals.
How to care for timber?
Not all timbers and woods are made the same and can tolerate the harsh environment of outdoors. Acacia woods and cedar are naturally rot resistant woods and durable to weather outdoor conditions. Removing dirt and debris can help preserve the appearance of your timber products and support the timber’s resistance to rot and insects. Most landscaping timbers, however, don’t commonly experience warping or splitting making them a durable garden addition.
How to grow your garden in timber products?
Despite the durability of most timber products, it is not uncommon to experience checking: small splits along the grain of the wood. If you use a sealant product can help minimise the appearance of checking. It is important to assure the sealant product you are using will not harm the soil and be toxic to your plant. It can also be helpful to organise appropriate waterproofing and drainage for your timber garden bed to support your garden’s growth.
