I saw this pin on pinterest and I am trying to build one myself. They used old fence planks but I don't have any of those. What is the best wood to use for a vertical strawberry tower?

    looks like dog ear cedar fence posts you can get them at your local big box store for less than 2 bucks each

    I would get 1x1 pine for the corners to nail/screw together

    Cypress would be the best since it holds up to water so well. Cypress doesn't rot and it is also fairly soft so using a hole saw would make short work cutting out all those holes. Another reason to use is is that cypress is not an endangered plant and is not harvested on a huge scale. Any wood used in ship building like teak is good, then on down to cedar wood.

    Any weather-tolerant wood would work. Obviously you should stay away from any treated wood. Cedar is also a really light wood and easy to work with.

    That is gorgeous! Primarily, you want to make sure that the wood you choose is weather tolerant - second the recommendation for cedar!
