Sleepers for raised beds Somerset

One of the most popular ways to use oak sleepers is as edging for garden beds. Sleepers can be used to create a sharp edge between lawn and garden, or used to create raised garden beds. If you are using oak sleepers for raised garden beds, we recommend using reclaimed sleepers as they are less likely to rot.


Sleepers for steps and retaining walls

Another popular way to use timber sleepers is to build steps or retaining walls. Wooden sleepers make great steps because they are durable and have a natural non-slip surface. They can also be used to build retaining walls, which can help reduce soil erosion on sloped yards.
