Redpath raised gardens are supplied in two types of wood materials, Pine and
Macrocarpa. Both timbers are non-treated - although Macrocarpa does offer a
slightly longer service life due to its natural preservative.
Independant industry advisor NZ wood quote "It is suggested you
plant no closer than 35cm to the timber edge or place a plastic or polythene
barrier between vegetable garden soil and the CCA-treated timber
edging" For this reason Redpath do not recommend treated timbers being
near to your edible foods.
You may choose to paint the pine raised gardens with Linseed or Tung Oil,
or you may wish to line them with a simple plastic sheet to assist with
increasing their service life.
The pine based raised gardens offer a cost effective medium life solution.
Both types of timber include the Redpath long life aluminium corner connecting
brackets for easy assembly and simple board replacement when required
NOTE: DUE TO TIMBER AVAILABILITY AND MILL CLOSURES, MACROCARPA GARDENS TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK, PINE ONLY AVAILABLE CURRENTLY
