Many thanks to Paul for his photos of his impressive railway sleeper project, that is a credit to his design, precision and hard graft. The outstanding effort he has put in to dig out and prepare the footings and move and cut 2 tons of railway sleepers, in a very compact, sloping site is really praise worthy. The end product is imaginative and beautifully transforms the garden.

Once Jane had worked out the position of the raised bed (moving a prickly pyracantha!) everything went smoothly. After starting with a lack lustre drill, she eventually organised a powerful one (thanks to her friend Karen) and the timberlok sleeper screws shot through the railway sleepers perfectly. The onions, spinach, strawberries, lettuce and runner beans are now all growing, and hopefully promising a bumper crop. It makes good use of what was a wasted space. http://www.railwaysleepers.com/projects/raised-beds-with-railway-sleepers/janes-raised-vegetable-bed-with-new-pine-railway-sleepers

Many thanks to Philip for the pictures of his railway sleeper refurbishment. A great improvement to his raised beds. The statue of the owl beautifully sets off the project.

Thanks to Sarah for her amusing commentary (well worth reading) and her wonderful photos of her railway sleeper raised bed project. It seems an all too familiar story that many of our most memorable achievements and crazy adventures are those which we would never wish to repeat! Thankfully, long after her bruises, aches and marital disharmony have subsided, her beautiful garden oasis is a stunning reminder of her landscaping heroics!

Graham and Deb sent us photos of their striking low level table made from new railway sleepers. It looks really solid and chunky, and is a really attractive long lasting piece of furniture. They even saved several hundred pounds by making it themselves! Mind you, they would probably need a weekend away just to recover from carrying it into the house!

Graham sent us pictures and description of his unusual clock which he made from an offcut of a railway sleeper. Very individual and beautifully made. His neighbour and friends will definitely be wanting one!

What a fantastic project that has been designed and built with skill and precision that would put to shame many professional landscapers. A big thank you to Mark for all his photos and description of his handywork. A wonderful project.

A stylish and eye-catching project using new railway sleepers placed vertically in a curved design, to create retaining walls for an outdoor school amphitheatre. Very professionally and meticulously executed.
