following on from my initial retaining wall project I then had a blank canvas
to work from once I had levelled the garden off. I used treated softwood sleepers
for the remaining projects as they were not supporting the weight that the
retaining wall was. These were so much easier to work with as they could be
lifted and moved single handedly. I purchased an electric chainsaw for the
cutting which more than paid for itself and I have now completely blunted
As you can see I have used the softwood sleepers for a small retaining wall
to the top patio and then a larger retaining wall. I have also created a raised
pond, raised flower bed, steps and even a bench with the one remaining sleeper!
The possibilities are endless. All sleepers were held together with the brilliant
timberlok screws purchased from yourselves. I would recommend these to anyone
as they lock the sleepers together strongly as the name suggests.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and ideas
An excellent example of using railway sleepers to transform a flat, 'blank
canvas' space into an imaginative, visually exciting garden, with wonderful
shapes & levels.
Masses of great ideas & a fine set of priceless photos that show the flexibility
& ease of use of railway sleepers (together with much hard work, of course!)
