Selecting the Proper Preserved Wood
for Landscaping

By: Butch Bernhardt




October 5, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM



Course Description:


Wood used in landscaping projects, from residential outdoor spaces to commercial areas, are exposed to moisture, insects or fungal organisms. Preservative-treated wood can ensure the durability of structures, including decks, gazebos, trail railings, fences and wood pedestrian bridges. In this presentation, participants will learn about the manufacturing process for pressure-treated wood, the preservatives used today, the available products and their differences, and how preserved wood is used in landscaping projects.
