How Could Railway Sleepers be Used in your Garden?

Railway sleepers are large wooden beams that get their name due to their common usage on railway lines. You can even get reclaimed sleepers, that have previously been used on railway lines, upping your environmental credentials when you buy them. There are many creative ways that you can use sleepers in your garden and make the space all the better for it.

Have you thought about creating a rockery before? Sleepers could be used around the edges to create boarders. Equally, they could be used as edging for border flowers, or for creating raised flower beds or vegetable growing containers. You can also use them to make furniture – a rustic table made from reclaimed sleepers could make a lovely design feature. You could also use them to improve the accessibility of your garden, using sleepers in the construction of steps, or using them to create pathways and as edging for paths.
