EVERYTHING YOU EVER NEEDED TO KNOW ABOUT RAILWAY SLEEPERS but were afraid to ask! Whether you are planning a raised bed, retaining wall, raised pond or some steps in the garden, you will find that railway sleepers are brilliant to use. Whether you want new or used railway sleepers, softwood or hardwood, untreated or treated, we have 1000's in stock & WE LOVE THEM! Some might say that this makes us a little obsessive, having recently built the largest railway sleeper projects collection in the world, but we are proud to say that we equally care about our customers & enthusiastically supply our railway sleepers throughout the UK.

What our customers say...

  • I am really happy both with the used tropical hardwood railway sleepers and my lovely landscapers who took a very considered approach to creating such a homely feel to the garden. Thank you for being such a delight to work with and for all your patience and assistance in the (finally) successful delivery. Dare I say this project is a triumph?!!...

  • I just wanted to say thanks and that your colleague Karen was very helpful and clear when I was trying to sort out what railway sleepers I needed and wanted from your products......

    Nick Wray, Borders, Scotland

  • I don't normally send feedback on websites, I wander around looking for ideas, but the selection of customer photos for the railway sleeper walls is fantastic. Certainly has proved to me that my idea is possible and can look great in the process. Will have to find the time to look around the rest of the sections.Excellent use of the website....

    Mike

  • I placed my railway sleeper order after 8pm on 27 Sept 2021. The railway sleepers were delivered on 30 Sept 2021 in the late morning. In the middle of the petrol buying panic this was an impressive performance. Well done. ...

WORK IN PROGRESS. Raised beds with new pine railway sleepers

WORK IN PROGRESS. Raised beds with new pine railway sleepers

It's refreshing to see photos of a project in midflight or in progress. You can see the nitty gritty of the building of the raised beds before the glamour of the planting up steals the show.  The practicalities of how the railway sleepers are connected together. The screws, the joining plates, the bare bones of construction. In some cases that can be as fascinating as the finished fanfare!

A NEVER ENDING RAILWAY SLEEPER PROJECT

A NEVER ENDING RAILWAY SLEEPER PROJECT

It's great to see people's brilliant railway sleeper projects & wonderful seeing them return again & again to buy more railway sleepers for their gardens. Retaining walls are swiftly followed by raised beds. Steps & paths soon accompany patio edging. But it's a slippery slope leading to water features, tables, fireplaces, play areas etc... This is the dangerous underbelly of railway sleeper landscaping. The sad, sad truth about railway sleepers. When customers read the warning sign on the website about the addictive quality of railway sleepers, they tend to laugh & insist it could never happen to them. "I'm just a social user. I just build the odd railway sleeper raised bed at Christmas when I've had a few drinks & maybe construct a railway sleeper wall on my birthday, when I'm out with my mates. It's not a problem. I've got it under control. I can quit whenever I want. Anyway, all my friends do it."
We're not wishing to spoil the landscaping party. Your creativity with railway sleepers is amazing and an inspiration to others. We just want you to take care!
