Is Pressure Treated Wood Safe For Gardening
I went to Home Depot to buy the synthetic wood for my vegetable garden. It’s very expensive. We want to box in all our vegetables and have stone dust paths in between the boxes. We want to dress it up and cut down on weeds. Well, the manager at Home Depot ask why we wern’t using pressure treated wood, it’s a 1/4 the price. The manager said that it’s perfectly safe to use today and that they don’t treat the wood with arsenic any more. So my wife and I used the pressure treated wood. Then today I talked to a person at my local garden center and he told me that it’s not good to use and that the Home Depot manager is not qualified to tell me that it’s safe.
Should I rip it all out? My garden is HUGE!
Thank you, John
