ASTONISHING TRANSFORMATION! Mike's landscaping with new pine railway sleepers

ASTONISHING TRANSFORMATION! Mike's landscaping with new pine railway sleepers

Sometimes when we see someone's beautifully landscaped garden or renovated house, we get overtaken by the excitement of the amazing transformation and forget the arduous process that they've had to go through. The meticulous planning, the gruelling graft, the digging, lifting, shifting, cutting and painstaking journey from chaotic rubble to streamlined new garden. Mike's 'before' photos are a perfect reminder of that tough voyage. A wonderful achievement.

JOCELYN'S INVITING RAILWAY SLEEPER STEPS & PATIO

11 May 2022 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

JOCELYN'S INVITING RAILWAY SLEEPER STEPS & PATIO

What a lovely patio you are creating. Really wide steps with railway sleepers are so visually appealing, especially when leading to a raised seating area. They give out a generous feeling of space and openness, that invites the viewer to immediately climb the steps and rest those weary legs. Alternatively, to try out some new ballroom dancing routine from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!

CREATING AN INTIMATE PATIO FRAMED WITH NEW OAK RAILWAY SLEEPERS

What beautifully crafted walls and raised garden beds Pete has made with his new oak railway sleepers. Blended perfectly with the lattice fencing and old brick walls, they create a private and intimate patio area, to enjoy those refreshing jacuzzi soaks or summer barbecues.

SIMPLY STUNNING. New pine railway sleepers are part of Susie & Rob's gorgeous garden.

Such a beautiful sweeping design, with flowing curves that melt into each other with elegant softness. Beautifully designed and exquisitely built. Pristine new pine railway sleepers are really versatile in highlighting the attractiveness of raised beds, patios and steps on different levels. A stunning garden.

Susie & Rob's tranquil garden with new oak railway sleepers

Many thanks for the photos of Susie & Rob's beautiful garden project. There is a really serene and gentle quality to their creation that is a tribute to both their design and handiwork. The oak railway sleepers provide clear architectural lines, and yet also a natural weathered appearance as they change colour in the summer sunshine. A memorable tranquil garden.

RAILWAY SLEEPERS IN THE ROUGH!

04 May 2022 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

RAILWAY SLEEPERS IN THE ROUGH!

It would be fair to say that most decent golfers don't go scrabbling under bridges in search of their ball. Instead they cheerfully walk down the centre of the fairway, totting up the number of pars they've accumulated, and dreaming of their next birdie. But this is where they miss out.  The more adventurous players explore the extreme edges of each hole, trecking through bushes, ponds and ploughed fields, admiring the natural beauty of unexpected undergrowth, whilst amassing long lost balls. An opportunity to discover the hidden delights of aged railway sleepers, and plan your next landscaping project. It may not help you in your quest to break 100 shots, but it may sweeten the pain of the eye watering club membership fee, as you sit contentedly in your newly designed garden.

STEVE'S WALL WITH RSJ BEAMS & AFRICAN AZOBE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

22 April 2022 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

STEVE'S WALL WITH RSJ BEAMS & AFRICAN AZOBE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

What an impressive railway sleeper construction. The sheer graft of digging into and terracing the slope, clearing and levelling tons of soil, boring holes for the steel beams, and installing 60 tons of tropical hardwood railway sleepers is a fantastic feat. Whether you call them steel beams, RSJs or I or H beams, they are a very strong and efficient way of building a retaining wall, and when matched with the amazingly durable African Azobe railway sleepers, they create a really tough and long lasting wall that should proudly stand the test of time. All credit to you.

GIVE IT A GO! AS SIMPLE AS LEGO OR JENGA BLOCKS.

GIVE IT A GO! AS SIMPLE AS LEGO OR JENGA BLOCKS.

Small raised bed planters are one of the easiest garden projects to create. Yes, even for those who are convinced they can't build anything (or who have been told so by their nearest and dearest). Imagine stacking lego bricks or Jenga blocks on top of each other. New 1.2m railway sleepers are so light to handle, easy to assemble and fix together, (just a few screws to put in with a drill), and you can make them whatever height you want. Perfect for vegetables, flower displays and even small trees. A definite must for any garden (or flagpole!)

ZIP WIRE & CLIMBING FRAME MADE FROM NEW LANDSCAPING POLES

ZIP WIRE & CLIMBING FRAME MADE FROM NEW LANDSCAPING POLES

Thanks to VLM Adventure Consultants for the pictures of their zip wire and adventure climbing frame. A very exciting and well designed project. Wooden landscaping or machine round poles are very popular for building playgrounds, whether for balancing poles, swings, play houses etc.. Not only for their natural looks, but also for the ease of construction, as there is no taper on them - they have the same diameter top and bottom, like a pencil, and so are straightforward to assemble. Inspired? Then make a start on that dream three storey tree house! You're only young once!
