Hard wood is necessary for outside work. Soft wood, like pine, wouldn't have lasted as long. I believe this illustrates Troy's desire to do things right, so they would last.
Troy: I know what I’m doing. This is outside wood. You put pine wood inside the house. Pine wood is inside wood. This here is outside wood. Now you tell me where the fence is gonna be.
