In our area of the country they are introducing a wood-platic product that
can be used for building decks. The Eco square is out to stop the
preserved wood as the preservative contains coper and arsenic compounds or
a copper arsenic compound. The wood/platic does not look bad. I was
looking at it instead of concrete blocks ro build a raised garden bed. (no
poison either) There are not too many sizes to choose from but they just
might fit the bill here.
I saw some cast concrete Us for drainage ditches. The top was a cast iron
removable grating. Heavy though.
A lot recomend PVC a lot say no.
