Not only a wonderfully constructed project but also a comprehensive and impressive collection of photos. Meticulous craftmanship is documented as the railway sleeper raised beds are built, and then framed with intricate brick pathways. A lovely piece of work and a fantastic addition to their garden. http://www.railwaysleepers.com/projects/raised-beds-with-railway-sleepers/eoins-beautiful-raised-veg-beds-with-new-railway-sleepers

Sometimes jobs seem endless and insurmountable. Sometimes you feel like you never what to see, let alone lift another railway sleeper in your life! But then, as the project progresses, and the design starts to shine through, the achievement and excitement and satisfaction starts coming to the surface. All credit to Dan. A great undertaking.

There's nothing more awful and shocking for a customer than employing a so called landscaping company that messes up a project and then scarpers with the money. The absolute pits. In contrast, what a godsend to them when a professional company like yours steps in and makes something wonderful out of a disaster. After a lot of hardwork, creativity and railway sleepers, and you have transformed the garden. To echo your customer: 'Can't thank you enough guys for completing an excellent job..... Turned my nightmare into something amazing.' http://www.railwaysleepers.com/projects/decking-patios-with-railway-sleepers/transforming-a-nightmare-with-hardwork-and-railway-sleepers

DREAMING OF UNIMAGINABLE WEALTH?
Will's railway sleeper pens could net you a cool billion pounds!
It is incredible to think that a 2.6m rough and ready railway sleeper can be turned by Will into such a delicate thing of beauty. Very impressive.
As a rough ridiculous estimate, one Jarrah railway sleeper could make 8,125 pens! (Of course allowing for no wastage, and absolutely no knowledge of wood turning!) And, if you sold these beautiful pens for £125 each, that would be 1 million pounds per railway sleeper. So a 1000 sleepers would create 8,125,000 pens which is 1 billion pounds....aghhh!! A solution for our national debt! Forget the National Lottery. Let's make railway sleeper pens! And with your billions you could run for President of the USA!
Food for thought about a pen being mightier than a ... err.... railway sleeper.

I like the last picture of the stack of railway sleepers that have just been loaded onto the pavement, before construction of the raised beds. A passing suited office worker has clearly seen it as a Council 'facility' for his briefcase and business phone call. A portable office!

A striking use of cracked oak railway sleepers to create the reception area for the London office of ad agency McCann Erickson. The reception desk was created using untreated oak railway sleepers and futher features included oak tables made using scaffolding poles, kitchen cupboard doors in different sizes, colours, style and shapes and a bar with an entrance hatch, a piano, and the car seats from a BMW!!

WAIT, WAIT, WAIT....
Most people experience the frustration of waiting around in hospitals for hours and hours. Liverpool Women's Hospital have designed a peaceful outside seating area using solid, sturdy railway sleeper seats, that hopefully will make the wait a little less painful. They could have chosen concrete, metal, but they thankfully chose a natural material with life and movement. Very suitable for a maternity hospital!

EVERY HOME IS A CASTLE!
Who needs a castle when you've got Gary as your landscaper. The way he's used the reclaimed Dutch oak railway sleepers to form a low 'castle topped' wall that retains the planting around the patio is really effective. A nice design, that creates a beautiful space to sit.

TOM'S GRUELLING MONTH of railway sleeper landscaping!
All credit to his determination and graft. The amount of arduous digging, shifting soil and lugging heavy railway sleepers  around that he did in the last month deserves glowing praise and applause for the amazing transformation of his 'blank page' garden. Very impressive.

WELCOME TO BEES, COMMUTERS & RAILWAY SLEEPERS!
The early morning squeeze and pandemonium of sleepy commuters racing into work has suddenly received a welcome boost courtesy of Qais Zakaria and the Bee Friendly Trust. These gorgeous railway sleeper raised beds brimming with scented flowers are the pick me up for any monday morning blues! Maybe every railway station in the world should contain these amazing pocket gardens!
