I had two follow up questions to a post I made a few weeks back. I am considering building a retaining wall for my gardens around the house with treated wood.
1. How long will presuure treated wood last if it comes in to contact with the ground ??
2. Is it safe ??? I saw an article on this site with some good tips - namely that as of Jan 1 , 2004 the wood should be safer.
I just bought 10 pieces of 4 x 4 x 10 at ***** for 3.50 a piece. Pretty Cheap - but is it safe ??
Any info would be appreciated. We are thinking of having kids and I want to be sure - thanks - jg1234
