Suitable for a wide variety of landscaping projects, railway sleepers have aways been a popular choice due to their appearance, strenght and versatility. Traditionally their uses were mainly agricultural, and included bay construction, retaining walls and other heavy duty applications. However, the imaginiation of many of our popular garden design television programmes has now established the sleeper as a key ingredient in a wide range of horticultural and hard landscaping projects.

We supply 3 types of sleepers all of which have their own benefits and use: new softwood, new hardwood and reclaimed hardwood.

A new EU directive has outlawed the use of creosoted railway sleepers which now cannot legally be sold to the general public. Traditional Homes & Gardens sleepers, which are perfectly safe to use are the best quality - Grade A only.
