Product Description

120mm x 240mm Green Treated Garden Railway Sleeper Applications

What once was the backbone of rail travel is now a popular solution in landscaping. 

The reasons for this are many and varied, but suffice to say that railway sleepers offer great versatility for gardeners and landscapers. 

These large 120 x 240 rectangular sawn timber pieces, which were formerly used to lay railway tracks, can be utilised in a variety of garden and leisure applications such as:

  • Raised Beds
  • Drive, Lawn & Garden Edging
  • Retaining Walls
  • Paths
  • Borders
  • Garden Steps
  • Garden Furniture
  • General Landscaping
  • Garden Projects


120mm x 240mm Green Treated Garden Railway Sleeper Specifications

There is a vast range of timber sleepers available on the market: from hardwood railway sleepers and softwood railway sleepers to reclaimed railway sleepers for those who prefer a rustic, vintage look.


Throughout its lifetime, a sleeper's colour can vary slightly. With prolonged UV exposure, these sleepers turn a beautiful sun-bleached silvery grey.


Let's check the specs: 

  • Provides a natural look in any garden landscape - natural composition subject to colour variations
  • Tanalised to withstand weather conditions, rot and insect attack 
  • Cost-effective alternative to traditional hardwood oak railway sleepers
  • Made from sustainably sourced timber (FSC-certified)
  • Ideal for raised beds
  • Can be stained with a wood protective treatment to match your desired aesthetic


How To Cut 120 x 240 Railway Sleepers

Although a simple hand saw can be used to cut softwood sleepers, the best method for cutting railway sleepers is with a circular saw.

However, keep in mind that you may need to make more than one pass with the blade to completely cut through the sleeper - first cut through one side, then turn the sleeper over and recut.

It's also important to remember when cutting treated softwood sleepers that cut ends should be treated with an appropriate wood preservative to ensure the timber stays weatherproofed. Time should be given to the drying process before installing the sleepers.
