Garapa: An Attractive and Durable Choice
Garapa wood, also known as Brazilian ash wood, is an excellent choice for exterior design. It is a warm, golden brown toned hardwood that is extremely durable with low maintenance. Garapa is stronger, harder, and heavier than oak, and with proper care can last an average of 20-25 years. The high density and natural oils of this material make it resistant to insects as well. It is resistant to rot, decay, splintering, and scratches. As it weathers, the color may lighten but there is no need to apply stains or sealers if you don't want to.
