BEN'S LAWN EDGING with new pine railway sleepers

BEN'S LAWN EDGING with new pine railway sleepers

A well constructed landscaping project. There's something very straightforward and clean-lined about using new railway sleepers in your garden. They are so easy for framing lawns and patios, and building simple raised beds and steps, and manage to look exceptionally smart and yet natural at the same time. On a completely different note, I notice that you have used artificial grass. I think I used to have an automatic old fogey dislike to plastic grass, in the same way as I impulsively did to PVC windows, electric bikes, brick-effect render and plastic gnomes. But I'm softening in my old age. I can see that that it looks really good all year round, is of low maintenance, probably from re-cycled plastic and deters moles.  But there again, I wouldn't be able to play with my mower..... yet on the other hand I'd create no petrol fumes.... Aghhh.... Endless impossible decisions.

RAILWAY SLEEPERS & PRICELESS JEWELLERY

RAILWAY SLEEPERS & PRICELESS JEWELLERY

Great to see the development of James's impressive workshop table for his wife, from the initial cutting and attaching of the different pieces of railway sleeper, to finally seeing the bench in use. A solid and sturdy base to fashion some beautiful jewellery. Whether she creates a spectacular gold leaf Faberge egg encrusted with priceless diamonds and dripping with rubies, or some simple silver earings, your heavy duty jewellery bench will be an inspiration for decades.

INSPIRATIONAL SCHOOL VEGETABLE BEDS from new pine railway sleepers

No wonder the school was thrilled. You've created an amazing garden full of raised vegetable beds that will inspire a new generation of gardeners and vegetable eaters... (well, here's hoping!). The stacked railway sleepers are at a height that is perfectly inviting for young fingers to learn the earthy delights of planting tomatoes and picking runner beans and collecting slugs and snails! All in all a magical children's project that has been brilliantly constructed by yourselves, and will be the envy of many schools and allotments. Congratulations.

MICHAEL & LINDSAY BUILD A LOW WALL AROUND THEIR GARDEN WITH OLD TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

MICHAEL & LINDSAY BUILD A LOW WALL AROUND THEIR GARDEN WITH OLD TROPICAL HARDWOOD RAILWAY SLEEPERS

These reclaimed tropical hardwood railway sleepers are perfect for building a solid garden wall around your lawn, or creating a weathered boundary edge, that looks as though it has been there for years. Not only do railway sleepers separate the grass from the flower borders or hedge, as well as framing the patio, but they also double up as a endless bench-like seat when the weeding or mowing gets too much and you fancy a rest.

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

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.

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!

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.
