CLASSIC RAISED VEGETABLE GARDEN WITH TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

CLASSIC RAISED VEGETABLE GARDEN WITH TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

Thanks to both of you for all the photos and step by step descriptions of the building of your railway sleeper project. You have created a really attractive and classical looking vegetable garden which sits beautifully next to the greenhouse, hedge and trees. Yes, the railway sleepers are really heavy to move and put in place, but once you have managed that, you have created some wonderful raised veg beds that will be a source of pleasure for decades to come.

CHRISTINE'S TRIANGULAR RAISED HERB BED FROM NEW OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

It is really satisfying to be contacted at the beginning of a project, when someone is at the design and ideas stage, and then to finally see the finished handywork when it all come to fruition.  It's great to see Christine's triangular raised herb bed that she created using new oak railway sleepers, and how she transformed an unused space into a functional kitchen garden.

SARAH'S ATTRACTIVE GARDEN WITH CURVED RAILWAY SLEEPER BENCH AND RAISED BEDS

What an beautiful collection of railway sleeper creations. The curved railway sleeper seating area is impressive and spectacular, and I love your other imaginative additions. The 'stepping stone' pathway, the little bench, the raised beds - all very delightful.

HEATHER"S WOODEN 'TILED' PATIO MADE FROM RECLAIMED TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

HEATHER

Thanks to Heather for the wonderful photos of her excellent project. A lovely 'tiled' effect by using small sections of old tropical hardwood railway sleepers to imaginatively create a unique, weathered, wooden patio surface. Really attractive, hard wearing and an impressive transformation of what was there before.

"IF THERE"S A SPACE - FILL IT"! Karen's railway sleeper answer to creating more planting space

11 April 2021 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

Yes, it's a popular saying that is shared by many gardeners! Lawns are gradually nibbled away by the additions of endless planting areas, veg plots and railway sleeper raised beds, until the main grass area has been reduced to narrow walkways between the herbacious borders! It's the unstoppable and exciting natural progression of creating more and more growing areas. Of course, there may be objections to this. What is this obsession (by mainly men) to have large striped lawns, as though they were recreating Wimbledon, Wembley or a croquet lawn? I'm sure it's connected to the power and excitement of turbo lawnmower gadgetry!
