Outdoors

Natural solid wood is a great choice for adding beauty and texture to outdoor applications like pergolas, gazebos, decking, garden furniture, raised beds, fences, and trellises. Cedar is a great choice for building pergolas and gazebos due to its warm undertones, and malleable yet strong properties. Western red cedar and Yellow cedar from British Columbia (B.C.), Canada are ideal for these end-uses since they have natural termite, rot and decay resistance, and can be used outdoors without chemical treatment.

Western Red Cedar

Western red cedar is outstanding for decking, pergolas, cladding, outdoor furniture, playground equipment, shade screens, pool furniture, and spa tubs. Both clear and knotty looks or a combination of both are achievable. The wood is generally kept natural with a UV coat to showcase its warm mocha colour and beautiful grain.

Yellow Cedar

Yellow cedar is perfect for pergolas, doors, door frames, outdoor furniture, shade screens, landscaping, and outdoor stairs. It is ideal in end-uses that require direct contact with the ground and water. Both clear and knotty grades are highly suitable. The wood can either be kept natural or stained to mimic hardwoods. A UV coat is recommended to prevent greying.
