Thank you all for the comments, it seems like the white oak got a lot of approval so far. The recycled plastic is an interesting material to consider. I will look into that to see what the strength factor is for flexibility, I don’t want it to blow around too much.

Taigert – Good point on going back to the customer to see what they will pay. Once the job was started and they came back to me with changes they realize that there are going to be additional costs involved. The question is how much? Where I left off with them was I would look into some different material choices and allow them to choose what they want based on the costs involved. So I am thinking to show them some White Oak, Recycled Plastic, Teak, Cedar & possibly Black Locust. Each one will carry a different price tag (and an additional up sell). As for the 12” height off of the ground, I already brought that to their attention and they are aware of the snow factor but feel any higher would look out of sorts. When I go back to them with the material choices I will try to get them to go up to 18” instead of 12”. This will keep it out of the snow most of the time, there are not a lot of snowfalls 18” plus on Long Island during the year. It will be close to the house and they can clean around it if the snow gets up to it.

Once again thanks all for the comments.

BTW any other thoughts will be appreciated!
