The Q&A Archives: Treating douglas fir boards

Question: If I use douglas fir boards for a raised bed, can I pre treat them with Thompson water seal or seal them to prevent any rotting without chemicals that can leach in the ground?

Answer: Thompson's Water Seal will work, or you could use good old fashioned Linseed oil. Either will help keep the wood from rotting. Good luck with your garden!
