Popular Uses for Garden Sleepers

Sleepers, also known as railway sleepers, can add a touch of rustic charm and functionality to your garden in many ways. Here are some ideas:

Edging: Sleepers are a popular choice for edging flower beds, vegetable patches, or pathways. They provide a neat and defined border, helping to prevent grass and weeds from encroaching on your plants.

Raised beds and planters: Build raised beds of various sizes and heights using sleepers. This is a great way to improve drainage for your plants, create designated planting areas, and add visual interest to your garden. You can even use leftover pieces of sleepers to create smaller planters for herbs or flowers.

Paths: Sleepers can be used to create attractive and durable garden paths. Lay them flat on a bed of gravel or sand for a simple path, or create a more raised walkway by stacking sleepers on top of each other.

Retaining walls: Sleepers are a great option for building retaining walls in sloped gardens. They can be stacked horizontally or vertically depending on the height and design you need.

Other features: Get creative! Sleepers can also be used for garden steps, water features, sandpits for children, screening areas, pergolas, or even furniture like benches and tables.

The Types of Garden Sleepers in Kent Stocked by HSW Timber

Depending on the aesthetic you have in your garden or outdoor space, you may require a different type of timber sleeper from HSW Timber. We currently stock and provide:

  • Second-Hand Grade 1 Oak Sleepers (2.6mt)

  • New Oak Sleepers (2.4mt)

  • New Softwood Tanalised Sleepers (various sizes)

It's important to note that due to the presence of creosote in the second-hand sleepers, which is now a banned substance, we are not able to cut those to size. However, for the New Oak Sleepers and the New Softwood Tanalised Sleepers, we can provide timber cutting services so you can have them to your measurements.
