Do we supply garden gnomes or plastic sleepers? Avoiding a slippery slope!!
We mainly supply large wooden landscape materials that are the basic 'building blocks' to the gardener: Railway sleepers for dramatic raised beds, steps, seats, ponds, pathways etc.. We also supply Telegraph and landscaping poles for posts, borders, swings, tree-houses etc.. and Oak barrels for water butts and planters...
We often get asked if we sell slate, boulders, top soil, gravel, turf, etc.. (we don't) ...but each year we add new materials.. so who knows! Recently we've been offered sandstone paving slabs which looked excellent... but it's a slippery slope. First you get into slabs, and then naturally move into patios. Soon would follow sheds and barbecues with turbo charged strimmers & partially dressed Greek goddesses. Plastic flowers & farting gnomes would tumble thereafter... and then you might as well give up on life itself. You've got to be careful!
Only this month we were asked if we sold plastic sleepers ! Mind you, laughing apart, Network Rail are now trialing the recycling of rubbish into plastic railway sleepers. SEE LINK

Thank you for your entertaining and informative website. Regarding slippery slopes, I'd hate you to miss out on this plastic railway sleeper trend. On a walk round Derwent Water last weekend there was a large section of boardwalk made of plastic decking boards and I was impressed that this may be part of the answer to the scourge of plastic. Enfield have begun to use road surfacing asphalt containing recycled plastic https://resource.co/article/recycled-plastic-road-surface-trialled-enfield-council-12444
I'm with you on the gnomes though.
