I’m pretty sure the biggest difference between your backyard weathered wood and the “reclaimed” stuff is the reused variety may have nails in it. I’ve not used such lumber myself, but as I recall Norm Abram used to always run a handheld metal detector over such wood before working it, so if you go that way I’d try to find a detector on eBay or something. Of course, if you use you own, you can skip that step.
