Cedar Lumber for Raised Bed Gardens

The preferred lumber in the Atlanta area for raised bed gardens is Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar is a beautiful and functional wood for indoor and outdoor use. It is very popular for outdoor structures and furniture, it is naturally resistant to insects and decay.

    I have also built some raised beds for a client or two using Synthetic Decking...it does not leach chemicals and is also rot resistant. It needs to be configured a bit differently due to its "less stiff" nature but for smaller beds it works great.

    I have been thinking more and more about the synthetic wood. Would it hold up in a retaining wall about 3 1/2 ft high?

    I have been using 6 x 6 pressure treated timbers
