What are Timber?

Timber is a type of wood which has been processed into beams and planks.

Broadly speaking, timber comes in three different types: construction timber, finishing timber and decorative timber.

Timber is a versatile raw material that offers several advantages, enabling it to be used in a wide range of applications for building and home construction

Timber can be divided into two categories, hardwoods and softwoods.

Timber is mainly used for structural purposes but has many other uses as well.

Where is Timber Used?

Timber has many uses when landscaping gardens, from decking, garden structures, gates, fences, garden furniture and sleepers. Using timber in your garden creates countless benefits.

Timber is incredibly strong and durable. Due to it’s fibrous consistency, it can withstand a lot of pressure, so is perfect for walking over, sitting on, for holding the weight of plants and trees, or for making load bearing structures.

Garden Fence Timber

Quality timber fencing and gates can make a huge difference to a garden. Not just in terms of appearance, but also in terms of security.

Types of Wood Timber?

Timber is classed as either softwood or hardwood, depending on the type of tree the timber comes from. Timber from hardwoods tends to be more dense than softwoods, though there are exceptions.

Softwoods come from coniferous trees such as pine, fir, spruce and larch.

Timber Treatment

The best way to protect and preserve wood, including timbers that have been tanalised or pressure-treated is to use a wood preservative.

Treating your wooden products should be treated as a priority, and depending on your local conditions and wood type this may need to be done from once every 3 months, to once every 12 months.

Luckily, The Mick George Group have an excellent range of ever lasting timber products which we think will really make your garden stand out.
