Information about new landscaping
The popularity of landscaping poles is due to the possibility of creating
something that looks natural, is quick to use, light to handle and soon weathers
as though it's been in your garden for years. They can be used for retaining
walls, structural supports, shade sails, children's climbing and play areas,
tree houses, play houses, picnic benches, inside houses etc..
~ There is a wide range of diameter from 50mm - 200mm -see price and dimension
chart below. Unlike telegraph poles there is no taper, and
the top and bottom of the pole is always identical. So, if you are looking
for regularity and identical poles, look no further.
~ There is a wide range of lengths from 0.6m - 6m (See price and dimension
~ We can cut poles to size if you
don't have the facilities, or if it speeds up your project. We can 'cross-cut',
e.g. cut a 3.6m pole down to 3.1m. We
charge £3 + Vat per cross cut. Alternatively you can cut them yourself
with a chainsaw or circular saw. They are very straightforward to cut.
~ The weight of a new landscaping pole will vary enormously between 5kg
and 100kg depending on diameter and length.
~ We can supply 'half diameter' or 'D' shape new landscaping poles
- see price and dimension chart below.
~ Project ideas: It would be impossible here to list all the things that
you can create with used telegraph poles.
Raised beds (poles stacked horizontally, or cut
& placed vertically side by side)
Stepping stones and steps,
Vertical supports (to sit sheds on, or fasten decking to)
Borders & dividers (beside drives, grass)
Pathways (e.g. 6" slices recessed into ground)
Lintels & Roof supports,
Agricultural and equestrian buildings, Pole barns
Pillars for arbours and walkways,
Jetties, Pond edging,
Gate & Fence posts etc..

~ They are Tanalith E treated and so can be used
in landscaping situations where there may be skin contact, e.g. in schools
and play areas. They are a safe alternative to creosote treated timbers.

E Treatment & Specifications
TANALITH® E pressure treated timber is timber which has been impregnated
with TANALITH® E* wood preservative under controlled conditions in a vacuum
pressure impregnation plant.
TANALITH® E pressure treated timber is protected against fungal (rot)
and insect attack to ensure a long service life.
Following impregnation a series of reactions take place between the wood preservative
and the wood structure so that the wood preservative becomes ‘fixed’
and cannot easily be removed from the timber.
Typical uses for TANALITH® E pressure treated timber include general construction,
cladding, garden and leisure wood structures, fencing and playground equipment.
* TANALITH® E wood preservative is cleared for use under the UK Control
of Pesticides Regulations. The preservative contains copper and triazole biocides.
You should have received the timber in a dry condition with no sign of preservative
fluid on the surface. If this
is not the case leave it to dry under cover, but ventilated, before using
When working with timber, wear gloves to protect the skin against abrasions
and splinters. Any cuts and abrasions should be
protected by a waterproof dressing. When power-sawing and machining, wear
goggles to protect the eyes from flying particles. Wear a dust mask and, whenever
possible, perform these operations outdoors to avoid accumulations of airborne
Avoid frequent or prolonged inhalation of sawdust. Consult HSE Guide EH40,
2002 for further information on exposure controls to wood dust.
In order to prevent injury care should be taken when lifting or moving timber.
The same precautions apply to
After handling or working with treated timber all exposed skin should be washed
before commencing other
activities, especially eating, drinking, smoking or going to the toilet. If
sawdust accumulates on clothes,
clean them before reuse. Launder heavily soiled clothes separately from other
household wash items.
END USE CONSIDERATIONS
TANALITH® E treated timber can be used in internal and external building
application and outdoors, in ground
contact or above the ground, without any need for further protection. It should
not be used where it may come into contact with drinking water or for food
preparation surfaces/structures or containers for storage, or in circumstances
where the preservative may become a component of food or animal feed. When
considering using TANALITH® E treated timber around
fishponds, please contact www.tanalith-e.com for advice.
It is best practice to prepare the timber as fully as possible prior to treatment
to ensure best results.
If any cutting, notching or drilling is made to the timber following treatment
then any exposed surfaces should be
liberally swabbed with ENSELE® end grain preservative to maintain the
integrity of the treatment.
All sawdust and construction debris should be cleaned up and disposed of after
Post treatment processing wastes, such as sawdust and off-cuts, must not be
used for animal litter or bedding.
TANALITH® E treated wood should not be used for fuel in barbecues, cooking
stoves or grates. Small quantities (less
than 0.5 tonnes) can be burnt in the open with due care and attention to your
neighbours. Householders should preferably dispose of the timber, sawdust
or ash through the ordinary waste collection service or at a local authority
Any waste timber, sawdust or redundant timber from commercial or industrial
use (e.g. construction sites) should preferably be recycled by reuse, or disposed
of to an authorised landfill or to a correctly controlled and approved waste
