Mixing PT and Cedar?
Since I'm letting them both gray out, they are both going to look the same, aren't they? Or are they?
This is for a small-ish grape pergola with bench under. I'm thinking of using PT 4x4s for the 4 posts and cedar for the "roof". The 4x4s are going to buried 3 feet in the ground. Norm Abrams said that cedar fence posts will last a long time if the filled with gravel and not cemented.
I live in a neighborhood of modest homes that average $160K.
