Why Eastern Red Cedar lumber? It's one of the best in our area (Kentucky)! It rivals cypress and redwood (from California). It repels insects and is a rot resistant hardwood. It's used in several outdoor projects for that very reason. If left untreated it will retain its aromatic properties longer. Eastern Red Cedar ranges from purples and pinks, deep red, and a violet brown. The wood can rapidly turn to a silver or grey due to the UV rays and oxygen.
Hire us for a yearly refresh to restore the vibrant color to your beds and begin to repel water and harmful UV rays. This will preserve your lumber's integrity every year. We will gently sand off the silvery gray top layer, and seal your beds with a our Eco-friendly, whey-based poly protein. This will help water roll right off the beds so that it doesn't absorb it (which can soften the wood over time). It will also help to retain its original color.
Members of the organic community have veered away from products to seal their beds for fear of it leeching into their vegetable gardens. Our eco-friendly poly-whey uses proteins instead of toxic ingredients found in traditional wood finish. The result is a lasting, beautiful finish that is safe for people, pets and the environment.
