Rot-Resistant Woods for Your Outdoor Projects

No need for chemical treatments on your deck or pergola. These woods stand up to weather, insects and time beautifully on their own.

Natural wood is a lovely choice for adding warmth and texture to garden structures like raised beds, fences, decks and trellises. Much lumber is chemically treated to prevent it from rotting. However, some woods have superior rot resistance naturally and can be used outdoors without chemical treatment.
