Quality landscape architecture
requires building materials that are beautiful and
long-lasting. Materials need to withstand environmental
elements yet retain their symmetry and aesthetic purpose.
Redwood has a well-known reputation for meeting these
requirements. Equally important, there are cost-effective
redwood grades to specify for every project, whether it is a
public plaza or a residential garden.
Performance is more than
durability. Redwood has qualities not found in other
woods-even woods treated with chemicals. Redwood performance
characteristics include resistance to shrinking, warping and
checking in addition to durability. This means redwood
projects age beautifully. Decks, fences and garden
structures made with redwood simply look better ten, fifteen
and twenty years after construction.
