    I am building a new House and have excavated the section and will now put up a Timber Retaining Wall approx 3M high x 80M long, obviously using Tanalised Timber. I will purchase an Airless Spray Gun. My question is:-
    DO I NEED TO PREP THE TIMBER?
    BEST PAINT, ACRYLIC OR OIL BASED STAIN.

    Regards

    Had to look up Tanalised Timber, here will just call it treated and we have different treatments for above ground and below ground use. Best you know what you are getting, you also want to have a can of the same treatment to coat any cut ends. We usually get this stuff while it is still wet from the treatment and you would not paint intill it is dry like at the end of the next summer and paint is not really required.
