ONE STEP AT A TIME! Dave's steps and walls with tropical hardwood railway sleepers

What an impressive collection of landscaping projects with railway sleepers! A stately flight of steps with castellated sides. A retaining wall with horizontally stacked railway sleepers, like huge bricks. A retaining wall with vertically placed railway sleepers like soldiers. A brilliant example of how to imaginatively terrace a slope with skill and hard graft. Can't wait to see the finished photos!

GARY'S RAISED FISHPOND (OR OUTSIDE BATH) from new pine railway sleepers

Brilliant to see photos of Gary's raised pond made from new pine railway sleepers.  A wonderfull well crafted design and creation, that is really eye catching as a stand alone raised fish pond, or even an outside bath if the mood takes him. Soaking the day away with some Japanese koi carp. Very classy. It's the real McKoi!

Robert's patio edging with new pine railway sleepers

Robert's patio edging with new pine railway sleepers

Robert mentioned that his project was 'nothing very exciting'. Sometimes very simple lines can be the most effective way of landscaping an area. Robert's edging wall from railway sleepers are a gentle and inobtrusive way of separating two sections of your garden. Sure, it doesn't shout out "look at snazzy me!", but there again that's the whole point of soft and peaceful changes to your outside space.

JOACHIM BUILDS A BEAUTIFUL WATER FEATURE FROM NEW OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

Many thanks to Joachim for the pictures of his beautifully crafted waterfall, that he have painstakingly made from new oak railway sleepers. In truth his water feature appears more like a precious piece of furniture such is the skill, neatness and precision he has used. All credit to him.

CHRIS RENEWS HIS GARDEN EDGING WITH NEW PINE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

CHRIS RENEWS HIS GARDEN EDGING WITH NEW PINE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

An impressive and useful collection of photos showing all the stages of Chris's garden project. When a person transforms a garden with new railway sleepers, most people inevitably admire the fresh finished look, without understanding the more arduous process you have gone through. Chris's pictures perfectly demonstrate the step by step tasks you've undertaken, from dismantling the old rotten timber, laying the bottom layer of new railway sleepers in place with stakes and plastic membrane, and then fixing the second and third layers in place. Finally, painting them all green! A very attractive and well constructed landscaping project.

MARTIN'S MINIATURE PATIO EDGED WITH NEW OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

MARTIN'S MINIATURE PATIO EDGED WITH NEW OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

Trying to design a tiny corner of the garden so that it is both attractive but also useable, is surprisingly tricky. Often in can end up cluttered as you try to fit too much in it, or simply pointless when you install five plastic garden gnomes or an antique wagon wheel on a plinth - just because you've got them. In contrast, Martin's delicate seating area works perfectly. It feels like a beautiful secret corner to read in or enjoy the sun, that is impeccably designed and created.

DEAN'S HUGE RAISED POND WITH NEW PINE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

What a dramatic pond Dean has created in a beautiful garden setting. In truth it's almost like a small swimming pool! The striking design is really imaginative with the two different areas divided by a peninsular that acts as an island surrounding the tree. It's also great to see the construction pictures as he pieces together the new pine railway sleepers. An excellent project.

NIKKI & STEVE'S PATIO WITH TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

NIKKI & STEVE'S PATIO WITH TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

I love the solidness & simplicity of the wooden deck and 'stepping stones' you have created with your tropical hardwood railway sleepers. The rich contrast between the lighter colours of the gravel & stylish rattan furniture, and the gorgeous weathered reddy brown of the reclaimed railway sleepers is really effective. An eye catching design.
