Once they rot, the level will drop again. Perhaps put a layer of crushed stone down, then top with soil and grass
Hello there, Why not just use New Turf (Sod) with new soil.....
Wood, by it's nature, will eventually rot. Depending on whether they were chemically treated, your boards are going to decompose sooner - or later. That said, if you're going to lay them side by side rather than in a pile, you probably won't notice a thing as it decomposes. However, wood that is pressure treated will shed chemicals into the soil that you may not want. That's your decision to make.
it depends if the boards were treated with my chemicals, also once the wood deteriorates the ground will sink - probably not the best idea
Whats best thing to use, other than pressure treated 1x4x14, to raise yard?
