What are timber sleepers, and what are they used for in gardening and landscaping?

Timber Sleepers are rectangular wooden beams made from softwood and hardwood. They are great for garden borders, retaining walls, raised garden beds, and more! 


Are timber sleepers treated with chemicals, and is using them in my garden safe?

Our softwood sleepers are pressure treated to ensure they can withstand outdoor exposure. They are safe to use in the garden as long as they are handled correctly. 


How long do timber sleepers last?

Our softwood timber sleepers come pre-treated to assist in extending lifespan. However, maintenance is still recommended to prevent rotting, insect attacks, and general wear. 

Specific types of wood will last longer than others, and it is generally best to occasionally treat with a protective sealant or preservative
