Cedar is the preferred species for fence and garden box construction due to its unique ability to withstand sun and moisture impacts over time. Typically rough cut band saw finish cedar is used for fencing and gardening projects, though some customers prefer surfaced wood. A typical fence will be constructed of 4×4 posts, 2×4 framing, and 1” material for the actual fence. A raised bed constructed of 2” cedar material can be expected to last 12-15 years before needing replacement.

North Mountain and its clients support the values that drive Harrop-Procter forest management decisions. Their staff and delivery service are great, and they stock a variety of products that are not available in conventional hardware stores. This is a great resource.
