A fine set of perfectly built compost bins, with Barry assembling new railway sleepers like big bits of lego. A simple and very satisfying design that will no doubt inspire others to follow in his footsteps, and join the composting revolution!

GINA'S SHED, RAISED BEDS AND WALLS FROM NEW PINE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

GINA'S SHED, RAISED BEDS AND WALLS FROM NEW PINE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

A wonderful range of landscaping creations with railway sleepers, that highlight the different levels in your garden to great effect. The solid railway sleeper shed is a natural addition that blends perfectly with the other structures. It's a shame that you have some leaking problems. Normally this is because new railway sleepers shrink as they dry out, creating slight gaps that windblown rain can seap through. It would be a shame to have to overclad the railway sleepers with other timber, so I hope you find some way of using mastic sealant to deal with those leaks, so you can see the railway sleepers in all their glory!

STEPHEN ROBINSON'S EDGING WITH TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

STEPHEN ROBINSON'S EDGING WITH TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

Great to see the photos of your railway sleeper project, especially with the before, during and after shots. Initially I puzzled making sense of your 'finished' pictures as there are disappearing walls and fencing to take into account, but the end product is an attractive, open and peaceful garden. Gently designed and subtly transformed.

THE BANKS OF THE RIVER SOAR ARE SUPPORTED BY RAILWAY SLEEPERS SLOTTED INTO STEEL BEAMS

Along the willow-lined edge of the river Soare, there are gorgeous properties whose gardens border the water. As their lawns dip into the river, the bank is supported by old railway sleepers slotted into steel i-beams or RSJs. A beautiful setting to sit and daydream.
