A guide to garden office wood

An interesting post on the blog of garden office specialist Spacetwo takes a quick look at the different kinds of wood used in the making of wooden workplaces. Here's a snippet:
PROS: Cedar is a knotty softwood which has a red-brown color with light streaks which gives it a beautiful and distinctive appearance. Over time it weathers to a natural Silvery Grey. Due to its tight ring growth and very high resin content it means that it is one of the most durable woods available. It is also very resistant to insects, which makes it an excellent choice for external uses like cladding.
CONS: Cedar is a desirable wood for building which makes it expensive so if using it for a large area it will increase your budget considerably. Because of its strong Red appearance it doesn’t make it the perfect choice if you want a painted finish because it is mahogany colour is hard to cover.
Well worth a browse. --------------------------------------------------------
