Why Not All Sleepers Are The Same

When it comes to buying materials landscaping and gardening, there are many different materials that can be used to create beautiful and functional outdoor spaces. One material that has gained popularity in recent years is the humble sleeper. Sleepers are incredibly versatile and can be used for a wide range of projects including retaining walls, edging, and raised beds. However, not all sleepers are created equal, and it’s important to choose high-quality sleepers that will last. In this blog post, we’ll explain why not all sleepers are the same, and why the timber sleepers from Brookridge Timber are high quality and will last.

Buy With Confidence From A Leading South West Timber Supplier

At Brookridge Timber, we are a leading south west timber supplier and timber trader in Somerset. We stock a range of railway sleepers allowing you to be creative with any landscaping project. Our sleepers are sourced from long-established links with the UK and European sawmilling markets and come in a range of popular sizes and lengths to suit most commercial and domestic garden projects.

Pressure-Treated Softwood Sleepers

One of the reasons why our sleepers are high quality and will last is that we use pressure-treated softwood sleepers. All of our landscape sleepers are high pressure treated using a copper-based preservative treatment. The treatment process is carried out in-house through our ISO9001 quality accredited treatment process by our team of trained operatives. This ensures that the sleepers are treated to the highest standard and will last for many years even when in ground contact. For that extra special project, our pressure-treated sleepers can be offered with a planed finish.


Reclaimed Railway Sleepers For Gardens And Landscaping

Another option that we offer is reclaimed sleepers. Reclaimed sleepers are likely to have been used for many years on a railway track and as they have been treated with creosote, they will still have a very long service life when used in ground contact. However, it’s important to note that there are many grades of reclaimed sleepers on the market, and not all of them are of the same quality. At Brookridge Timber, all of our reclaimed sleepers are sourced from trusted timber suppliers who only deliver the top grade A quality. This ensures that our reclaimed sleepers are of the highest quality and will last for many years to come. Our reclaimed sleepers are ideal where a project requires a more rustic look. Please remember as these sleepers are in effect second hand there can be a large tolerance on the dimensions stated.

Quality Oak Sleepers

Finally, we also offer oak railway sleepers. Oak is a durable species of timber and as such is ideal to be used in ground contact as a landscaping sleeper. As a species, it requires no preservative treatment to give a long service life in ground contact. The oak sleepers supplied by Brookridge Timber are guaranteed to have two good faces and are ideal for a special project.
