We recently took delivery of some of these
used square oak railway sleepers. We bought them as edging for a new lawn.
They are great. We liked them so much we decided to buy some more. Plan B
is now to add more sleepers as edging, level the lawn and replace the turf,
and build raised beds to the right, and under and around the tree!
We have Sleeper fever.
Our garden was designed by Dale Followes
of Flintham. We had never heard of
railway sleepers before, but we have now! We like the raised effect you get
from using the square sleepers, plus the offcuts are regular so offer great
possibilities. For example, you can make mysterious, turreted, wall, thingies
for under your trees. More subtle than an arbour and twice as
confusing! Many sleepers were harmed during the making of this garden
! All we need now is the Dutch railway station to go with them!
Thanks again for such a wonderful product
and excellent customer service.
Sleeper fever is seen as highly contagious although generally only adversely
effecting the length of the arms and emptiness of the pocket. Those afflicted
will experience extreme euphoria & bouts of creative energy when in contact
with used railway sleepers, & depression when seperated. WARNING
Handle with care.
