damn sweet lizard.i see you were smart and went faux lawn as i did. i gotta tell you though cedar would have been better. the trellis on my patio i did the slats with cedar 30 years ago and still holding up. i made a potting bench 13 years ago with redwood and it's eatin up with termites. problem is all the redwood now is new growth and mostly sapwood which the termites eat as candy.not sure if you have a termite issue though. hey patio looks killer man.
