    Can anyone advise on reasonably priced wood that I can use to build a short border wall for someone’s vegetable patch and border? (edited)

    I have always used sleepers, no idea on the current price but they were always cheaper at country building supplies.
    Could also look into scaffolding boards.
    Whatever you choose i would recommend lining the inside with something like a damp proof membrane, this stop contact of the wood and the soil and stop it rotting

    Recently bought C24 from these guys (£4.44) ( davidmussonfencing.com/tim…mm/ - all arrived completely straight and perfect. Would use again.

    From my experience, 3 out of 4 of these are bowed!

    Takes ages rummaging through the stack to find the straight ones.

    Back to the pre-COVID price! (edited)

    This is true from experience

    Just banged this out with these for the frame and some decking boards. If you’re not building something 2.4m long. I wouldn’t fret too much about a bit of a bend. Obvious bananas get put to one side and I pick them up a quid a piece last time I saw them.

    This looks brilliant! What did you use to line the inside? Or is it just painted black?

    I got 20 of these recently delivered for a catio project and only one was slightly bowed but fine for me. It was actually c24 that got delivered too not sure if that makes too much of a difference

    C24 is better graded wood.

    Wickes timber is decent enough, just need to have a rummage through it!

    Having to rummage through lengths of timber to find the decent stuff hardly screams quality

    Wickes timber is an absolute shambles, make sure you lay every piece on the floor on two adjoining sides to see if it's warped.

    That said, if you just want to nip to a local DIY place you're not going to beat it for price and time is cheap, wood is expensive.

    cut a small v in one end and it makes a great clothes line prop

    Good price these days I suppose. Generally, Wickes tends to be overpriced for a lot of building materials. Still don't understand the 'Free Collection' tag line though in many stores sales talk. Surely you are going to the store to buy it and not having it delivered., so it should be free to do that. Marketing department talk creeping in here... anyway, I'd rather pick it out myself then leave it to some sloppy sales assistant to pick it for you as a good proportion of the wood will be wonky.

    Free collection is they have picked it for you. You just turn up and take it away. But delivery being only £7 or free over £85 it's worth having large items delivered. Wickes delivery is great. (Usually self employed drivers in their own vans)

    Thank god prices of wood coming down, had loads of things I need to do.
    yozzer's avatar
    Me too. But the high prices have given me the excuse to put them off

    Cool story 👏

    Ordered these before and terrible quality. Therefore, for this price this is not a good deal.

    Wickes wood is a joke, if it's not warped in the store , it'll warp on the drive home.
    And they seem to source from the magic forest with the most knot holes per foot of any timber. Even discount pallet manufacturers won't touch them
