It's always best to check to see whether we have your products in stock. Generally, we can offer same day delivery if you order before 1 pm, but with larger items like our sleepers, delivery may take a little longer.
We have a range of Ecowood sleepers for different garden bed structures and retaining walls. Sizes include:
All our Ecowood sleepers are garden grade, and suitable for non-structural ground contact applications.
Ecowood coatings penetrate the wood fibres to create a natural barrier against water and fungal decay. It means the wood will last longer when exposed to the elements, while giving it an aged, silvery aesthetic.
Best of all? It's made from mineral based ingredients, so it's environmentally friendly.
You can use sleepers in a variety of applications. From creating garden beds, to building retaining walls or even a shallow sandpit, it's a versatile product.
Other applications include:
We also have concrete sleepers available, in a variety of aggregates to suit any aesthetic. Check out our range online, or at one of stores in Hoppers Crossing and Epping.
Softwood sleepers are usually sourced from Baltic timber and are easy to handle, cut, and drill. They're lighter, and smaller, so they're easier to move around.
Meanwhile, hardwood sleepers can weigh up to 50 kilograms. They're more dense, and longer lasting than softwoods. They're the best kind of sleeper to use for retaining walls and other permanent landscaping structures.
As they are exposed to the elements, pine treated sleepers can get damaged over time. To help increase the lifespan of Ecowood sleepers in your garden project, is to make sure you treat them with wood oils around twice a year, usually in Autumn and Spring. This is especially true for decking and steps.
Wood oils repel water and prevent water ingress, which are the main sources of rot and decay in your wood.
Sleepers like our Ecowood and concrete range need to be laid on a surface that is level and firm. You'll need to dig a trench to support it either side, and in some cases (depending on the project), you may need to use a mortar mix.
