THE DELIGHTS OF OAK BARRELS IN THE SHROPSHIRE HILLS

Tempted by the stunning walking, healthy cycling and amazing views of the Shropshire hills? Forget it! All you need is a visit to The Bridges inn, where you will find this great collection of oak barrel tables & planters. You'll appreciate the satisfaction of placing your food and drinks on them as you laze the summer days away. Even in winter the pub is warm and welcoming with a log burner making it a snug and comfy place to hang out whilst watching the rain battering down, or the snow slowly settling on top of the barrels. How can you resist?

Daniel has created a wonderful outside area to enjoy with friends, as he cooks amazing barbecues, chats about life and soaks in the hot tub. All very idyllic!

TRACY'S BEAUTIFUL GARDEN CREATED WITH NEW RAILWAY SLEEPERS

Thanks to Tracy for the excellent photos of her recently created walls and raised beds that she's imaginatively built with new railway sleepers. Such a beautiful garden that flows from level to level with gorgeous planting and luscious backdrops. A wonderful place to sit, be inspired and marvel at the spectacular globes of the gigantic purple Alium.

Raised oak railway sleeper beds sitting on local reclaimed bricks

Another brilliant project by Worthington Landscapes Design creating a superb garden with a multitude of enjoyable areas that will be a real delight to both frogs and gardeners alike! I like the imaginative way in which the new oak railway sleepers sit on top of a layer of attractive reclaimed bricks to form beautiful raised planters. A very original way of presenting raised beds. All in all, a fabulous garden.

An epic Scottish chronicle of an immense railway sleeper table

An epic Scottish chronicle of an immense railway sleeper table

Brilliant photos. There are many unbelievable factors to this stunning table. Firstly, how did Martyn finally move it into position?! The overall weight of one to two tons is jawdropping, and it must be virtually impossible to shift without a team of olympic weightlifters! Many people struggle to lift ONE tropical hardwood railway sleeper, let alone nine! Secondly, the cutting into a circle of such tough tight grained timber is not to be undertaken by the faint hearted. Not to mention the sanding and oiling. No wonder one of his pictures shows his son flat out on the railway sleepers. Either exhausted or a child sacrifice! All in all a massive and impressive undertaking that will comfortably sit 8 people for eternity. Indeed in 500 years, they'll probably construct a futuristic house around it, as they scratch their heads and marvel at the skills (or lunacy) of the early 21st century, whilst singing ballads about the 'Muckle Teeble of Dumfries'!

BEAUTIFUL JERSEY PARADISE HAS RAILWAY SLEEPER STEPS IN THEIR HUNDREDS!

One thing you're sure of when you have such a gorgeous sloping garden is that you've got to be pretty fit to take on all those flights of stairs! Azobe tropical hardwood railway sleepers are a great choice for all these steps as they are so durable. Yes, they are heavy and tough to cut, but when they are finally installed they last for decades, and blend amazingly amongst all the plants and trees. Solid, beautifully weathered and a constant invitation to explore the different delights of your garden.

Owen has created really eye catching terraces of raised beds, using tropical hardwood railway sleepers slotted into steel I beams, and with more railway sleepers used as steps running up the centre. An attractive flowing design in a gorgeous weathered colour.
