Pine is a strong and resilient wood that will last for many years with proper care. The natural decay of pine is slowed by a chemical infusion technique. Pine that has been treated will be more durable and resistant to rot and insect infestations.
Because of this, treated pine sleepers may be used as a garden border, in a retaining wall, on a path, or in any number of other ways to enhance your outdoor living space.
Treated pine sleepers can be secured using galvanised steel upgrights in either c,h or corner sections. You can also cut sleepers and fasten them with bolts through the other sleepers.
We recommend Eco-wood treated pine for veggie patches, because it is non-CCA (Copper, Chrome, Arsenic).
Where to Use Treated Pine Sleepers in Your Outdoor Area
We recommend sawn treated sleepers for most of your outdoor projects such as retaining walls (we also recommend concrete sleepers for this purpose), vegetable patches, and garden beds.
Treated pine sleepers are strong and sturdy. They provide a defined barrier between garden beds and lawn, paved areas or decking.
They are also commonly found where the land is sloped to retain soil on the high sides, creating a flat,useable surface.
The use of retaining walls along the edge of the property may be an effective way to section off the garden while also providing an appropriate boundary..
Growing your own vegetables is a fun and rewarding activity that the whole family can help with.
Eco-wood treated pine is recommended for veggie patches, because it is non-CCA (Copper, Chrome, Arsenic). This timber will provide a sturdy border that will hold the soil in place to ensure your vegetables have adequate earth to grow in.
Raised Garden Beds
Raised garden beds add interest and frame areas of your garden you would like to define. Using raised garden beds can be an effective way of bordering distinct sections of your outdoor zones.
Things You Should Know About Pine Sleepers
They Need To Be Treated In Order To Have A Long Life
In order to get the most use out of your wood sleepers, you need to make sure that they have been treated to a minimum of H4 standard.
The H4 treatment gives timber the durability necessary for the majority of in-ground applications.
In addition to selecting H4 treated pine sleepers, you must respray all cut surfaces with EnSeal Retreatment Spray to ensure the timber remains completely sealed from all 6 sides. This will ensure that your timber sleepers are protected from rot as well as pests such as termites.
Use a variety of plants, features, and textures in the design of a new garden or the renovation of an existing one. Using treated pine sleepers will give your garden a new, look that will stand out beautifully against the greenery and other natural elements.
