Ipe

For a truly stunning and long-lasting outdoor project, Ipé (pronounced ee-pay) may be the answer. Grown in Brazil, its heartwood ranges from olive brown to blackish with lighter or darker striping. It’s extremely resistant to attack by decay fungus and insects, and is very durable, commonly seen with a lifespan of 30-75 years. Ipé is low-maintenance, requiring little more than an annual application of a UV protectorate, or if desired, skip the application and enjoy the beautiful natural silver patina that will result.
