Not at all.Yes, great idea. The treated lumber worries me though. Pressure treated lumber used to have arsenic in it. I think they don't do that anymore but I'd be a little cautious about the rain run-off from the exterior of that wood. Sorry, I don't mean to be critical, I love the idea, but I would check into what the wood is treated with.
That's funny Panzer as my hubby worked as a sheet metal man for many yrs and all my stuff gets made out of stainless steel!My father was a general contractor. I learned to drive a nail into wood before I learned to ride a bike. That is why most of my grand schemes come in the form of wood.
Agreed, my trap door snails are doing fine as well. Although I have one that just goes in a circle about the size of a small plate. His little area is immaculate. Just goes to show that even among snails you still get "that guy".Most Homeowners really can’t get cca treated lumber anymore, all the big box lumber yards don’t carry it anymore. 2x lumber isn’t even treated with a cca treatment anymore been outlawed. Contractors can still get 3x and up from certain lumber suppliers.
Personally I doubt you are going to have much bleeding or issues with your pond from wood treatment chemicals. I have CCA treated posts in my pond water holding the bridge up, w/o issue, been like that for 9 years now. Plenty of invertebrates in the pond which would be most sensitive to the copper/arsenic.
Well that is handy. Relatively light weight thin and strong. It is hard to beat steal.
Uh . Wow! That is breathtakingly beautiful
