Raised Bed Preservative

  • Subject: [cg] Raised Bed Preservative

We're trying Lifetime Treatment this year on some of our arbors and
trellises in our youth garden.  It's a non-toxic wood preservative.  The
verdict is still out for us because we just applied it, but you may want
to give it a whirl.  Good luck and let me know if you find another
solution.

Subject: [cg] Safest paint for raised beds

What have people found to be the safest paints for raised beds?  We
know to
avoid the old or new styles of treated wood.  And redwood and cedar are
out
of the budget.  Mortered bricks/cement blocks/stones are not allowed,
and
the water on the slope would disassemble unmortered items in the next
big
rain.  So we are looking for outdoor paints or treatments that are ok
around
food plants.

Thanks for any ideas you might have that we could try.
