For over 25 years, American Timber
and Steel has been supplying top
quality Landscape Timbers for
retaining walls, flower beds, raised
gardens, parking bumpers, stairways,
and to line driveways. Landscape
Timbers are the “natural” choice of landscape
When American Timber and Steel talks about
Landscape Timbers, we’re talking about big,
strong timbers that are treated right. You can
buy the rounded side “treated” landscape timbers
from your store “down the road”, but don’t expect
them to last long. Those “peeler cores” are a byproduct
of plywood which is left over after they
take all of the good plywood veneers off of the
outside. This core is not treatable but just colored
to look treated. We don’t want you to waste your
money on a product which will rot away after
just a few years.
Our standard Landscape Timber sizes are
6x6, 6x8, and 8x8, although other sizes are available.
The standard length is 8’, although timbers 20’ and
longer are available.
We carry full sized rough sawn timbers, for a more
rustic, rough look, and surfaced timbers, for a more
cleaner, uniform look. While the rough Landscape
Timbers vary in size a bit, the surfaced Landscape
Timbers are planed down before treating to a uniform
size, about a half an inch smaller than the size listed.
For residential use, our timbers are only available
treated with the non-arsenic based ACQ. If the
Landscape Timbers are for commercial use, you have
your choices of ACQ or CCA treatments. Both will give
you decades of service.
So, to order the Landscape Timbers that will look great
and last long, call our timber experts today.
