  3. 8 ft 4x4 pressure treated posts much better than shabby 3x3 ones.

    Protimised or tanalised (both have that green colour) will do the job if you require timber over concrete.
    I built a structure in the garden of our last house and it was there for ten years, but when we were moving the new people said they were going to remove it anyway so I dug it out and took it with me and the timbers were as good as the day I had put them in the ground.
