Pine sleepers are suitable for constructing retaining walls, walkway bridges, fences, pathways, steps and garden edging.
To enhance their durability, pine sleepers are chemically treated to prevent attack by rot, fungi and termites. Pine sleepers are a cost-effective alternative to concrete or hardwood landscape products.
Quality Timber stocks treated pine sleepers in lengths of 2400mm and 3000mm, with a depth of 200mm, and thicknesses of 50mm, 75mm or 100mm. All of our stock is hand-selected, so that we can be certain the materials we sell are of the highest quality.
Pine sleepers are light but strong, and a retaining wall built to the proper standard is able to support a considerable volume of soil. Retaining walls made from treated pine sleepers can transform sloping blocks of land. By creating flat areas, the space can be opened up for a variety of uses.
Sturdy pine sleepers laid on the ground can be used to create a simple, country-style deck area quickly.
Pine sleepers are often chosen by landscape designers looking to create a low-maintenance garden with an appealing rustic look, which blends into the natural setting. They accept oils and stains well, although many landscapers prefer the natural weathered appearance of unfinished sleepers.
Pine is a versatile timber that is easy to work with. Pine sleepers can be used successfully in a variety of DIY construction projects, even by someone who has limited experience in working with wood or creating wooden structures.
At Quality Timber we also stock hardwood sleepers. Talk to us if you need guidance on whether to use hardwood or pine sleepers in your landscaping project.
