I do have one more hint to offer. For the wood that will resting on the ground buy some pruning paint and give it a good coat. Be generous. WalMart's garden department has it in a spray can at a reasonable price.
OldGuy, what is this pruning paint you write of? What does it do? Why am I to be generous with it?
It's actually an asphalt based sealer. It'll keep the wood from rotting.
