THE FINISH OF AN SPECTACULAR SCOTTISH PROJECT WITH NEW TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

Brilliant to see the landscaping almost finished. An immensley impressive and spectacular project undertaken in arduous conditions. No machinery for digging or carrying the railway sleepers & steel H beams into the garden. Amazing!

NO CLIMBING ON OUR RAILWAY SLEEPERS!

NO CLIMBING ON OUR RAILWAY SLEEPERS!
I know it seems harsh, but our woodyard is not an adventure playground, and health and safety are not so keen on children abseiling off our stacks of railway sleepers! Mind you it was definitely a different picture 80 years ago!

IS THAT AN OVERSIZED BLUE CHICKEN ON A RAILWAY SLEEPER RAISED BED?

Now that's not something you see every day! In fact it's a really big deal. Takohe birds were considered extinct for 100 years and are now being returned to the wild in New Zealand's South Island. This railway sleeper edged monument celebrates this massive conservation victory.

WE ALL GO GREY IN THE END! WEATHERED RAISED POND BUILT WITH OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

WE ALL GO GREY IN THE END! WEATHERED RAISED POND BUILT WITH OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

It's surprising how fast freshly cut oak railway sleepers change from golden yellow to bleached silvery grey. It's one of those unavoidable facts of life that outside timber (AND HAIR!) eventually goes grey, unless you chose to colour it with wood stain. Unsure if hairdressers would approve, though. I knew there was a reason why I lost my hair!!

JUST WAITING TO BE PLANTED! EXPECTANT RAISED BEDS WITH RAILWAY SLEEPERS

An incredibly special walled garden. Not only for the meandering paths that explore the endless patchwork of spectacular planting and vibrant borders, but even the empty railway sleeper beds that excitedly await herbs, vegetables, fruit & flowers! An overwhelming sense of peace & relaxation that flows throughout this volunteer run paradise.
