    Please tell me those are not pressure treated timbers! I have put too many hours in my garden to have veggies laced with the nasty s^&# used to treat wood!!

    yes, these are pressure treated pieces of wood. HD says.........."Use for decks, play structures, raised beds, planter boxes, retaining walls, walkways, outdoor furniture, landscaping and other outdoor projects"....

    what can happen if you plant vegetables in them?

    what other kind of wood can you use for something like that?

    Bricks were too expensive for the client!

    pressure treated lumber used to be treated with arsenic. HD hasnt carried that type of treated for a few years now. It is treated with a type of salt I think now.
