Best logs for log wall
About 8 years ago, we had our garden redesigned, with curved log walls as an integral part as our garden is on a slope.
Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, we needed some of the logs replaced as they had gone completely rotten. We think that beech logs were used initially, but some of these seemed very "pithy" and softer, so rotted more quickly. It is our belief that these were replaced with chestnut logs, which seem okay.
Now more of the original logs have rotted to the point of needing to be replaced, so the questions are:-
1. Which is the best type of logs to use, and
2. Where can we buy them from?
And the moral is, don't buy a house with a garden on a slope and expect it to be easy or inexpensive to maintain!
