Railway sleepers are attractive and high-quality timber, often used to create accessible, well-draining raised beds. Suregreen supply several different styles of softwood railway sleepers and hardwood railway sleepers - including the NEW charred brushwood range, which have the most beautiful and authentic finish, whilst still being easy to stack.
All our railway sleepers are ideal for both domestic and professional applications, including retaining walls, garden benches or as a rustic alternative to brick or stone. These sleepers are also well-suited alongside our gabion baskets for a modern twist on traditional landscaping.
Treated Softwood Sleepers
Suregreen supply UC3 green treated softwood sleepers, UC3 brown treated softwood sleepers and UC4 green treated softwood slepers, whereby the tanalised pressure treatment process protects the wood from rot and damp to ensure a long-life. This treatment is completed under high pressure to ensure that the preservative penetrates deep into the wood, helping the sleepers to remain strong and rot-resistant - even with surface splits. Please note that if you cut the sleeper, the freshly exposed ends will need to be treated with a wood preservative to ensure it remains fully protected. You can purchase at-home wood treatments here.
Perfect for any and all landscaping projects, these softwood railway sleepers are the ideal product for creating raised beds or retaining walls. The green treated sleepers are better suited to darker back drops, whilst the brown treated sleepers are fantastic at adding contrast to lighter gardens.
Charred Brushwood Sleepers
Charred brushwood sleepers are inspired by the ancient Japanese art of Shou Sugi Ban - these sleepers have been treated with fire! Shou Sugi Ban is the process of strengthening and treating timber by charring the surface followed by brushing and treating it. This leaves a unique, distinctive pattern that is undeniably beautiful. Customers who have used the fire treated railway sleepers have reported that the photos don't do them justice to the beauty in-person, and they are extremely happy with them. They are soft to touch, and an extremely aesthetically pleasing garden sleeper.
Hardwood Oak Sleepers
Made from a naturally dense timber, our oak sleepers are sourced from Quercus Cerris and Robur (oak varieties) and are extremely durable, hard, and strong. Turning a silver grey when exposed to the elements of sun and rain, they are naturally eye catching whilst blending in with all types of outdoor environments. Often referred to as hardwood railway sleepers, their durability and longevity make this variety of garden sleeper ideally suited for use in retaining walls or as an alternative solution when creating a decking/patio area. Whilst our oak sleepers are naturally attractive and robust meaning they do not need treatment as standard, these can be added from our Barrettine range if a different colour is preferred to suit the modern garden such as black or grey, or the traditional garden such as cedar red or green.
All of these eye-catching garden sleepers are perfect for creating contrast with your garden or house, making any home, garden project or raised bed induce a sense of mystery and allure.
Better yet, Suregreen’s railway sleepers are sustainably sourced and are the perfect choice for strength, durability, looking good whilst helping save the planet. Planting trees and using wood for landscaping materials is the right way for us all to tackle climate change. Looking to plant some trees? We manufacture and supply Vigilis Tree Shelters!
