Carter Oosterhouse uses sustainable cedar and eco-friendly concrete stain in a backyard makeover.
More in Home Improvement
Western red cedar forests are harvested and reforested in a sustainable manner. Cedar needs far less energy and produces far fewer byproducts to manufacture than materials such as steel and concrete. It's also biodegradable and can be recycled.
Soy concrete stain is made with eco-friendly renewable resource materials. It's acid-free and contains no hazardous materials, so the disposal concerns typically found with paint and stains aren't an issue. Soy concrete has an ultra-low VOC (volatile organic compounds) content and just a slight odor, making it ideal for indoor or outdoor use.
