Landscape timbers are used in many parks and recreation-related projects. These timbers are constructed as edging or short retaining walls around gardens and property lines to help retain soil and sand.
Benefits of HDPE Plastic Lumber
HDPE plastic lumber is a building material that is expertly suited for these types of applications because it is meant to be outdoors. It will not rot, mold, splinter, crack or degrade due to harsh weather conditions, and is environmentally-friendly and won’t leach chemicals into the ground. It is durable and long-lasting and can take quite a beating from Mother Nature without the need for repairs or replacement. Insects and other pests can’t burrow or infest this material and it is easy to clean and maintain.
What Bedford Technology Products for the Job?
SelectForce® by Bedford Technology is our staple product that is manufactured from post-consumer and post-industrial recyclables like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles. It is a durable material that comes with a smooth or stone-design finish.
FiberForce® by Bedford Technology is engineered with fiberglass strand, which increases rigidity and strength. For landscape timbers, this product is great because you can build it and forget it. The fiberglass increases strength performance characteristics, making it tougher than traditional building materials for landscaping projects.
Why Traditional Building Materials Fall Short
Traditionally constructed using hardwoods, landscape timbers are meant to be durable and low-maintenance. However, with continuous exposure to outdoor elements, traditional wood can splinter, crack and rot and can leach harmful chemicals into the soil. This causes the need for repairs and replacement, which can disrupt the environment and are time-consuming and cumbersome.
