Making your garden into a truly unique and enjoyable place to spend your time shouldn’t be difficult. However, most of us are forced to deal with limited space, and doing anything other than keeping the grass neat can take a lot of time; a project that most of us just can’t afford between work, spending time with the family and socialising.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that as soon as summer rolls around we’re taking a few days off to get our gardens in order for the rest of the year. Even this time can seem like too little to do any major work, but there are a range of simple landscaping materials you can use to make a real difference to your garden in a short period of time.
Garden sleepers, or railway sleepers, are a great component of modern landscaping which can not only add a little variation to your garden space, but can also enable you to take a more vertical approach to your otherwise flat garden space.
Garden sleepers are actually railway sleepers which are regularly used to support train lines. However, they are available as both reclaimed and new designs, with softwood and hardwood variations. Thanks to the simple and rustic design of these components, they place an absolutely essential role in many gardens.
They are an extremely diverse landscaping material, being little more than large rectangles of distinctive wood, and are extremely versatile. As well as being used to create pathways and frames in the garden space, they are most commonly stacked to create distinctive planters or flowerbed retaining walls.
If you are going to lay your own railway sleepers, then you need to make sure that you have the correct tools for the job. To make sure the project goes through without a hitch, you’re going to need:
