Our oak sleepers are rough cut, so may feature wany edges and bark. As garden grade sleepers, they will typically feature on good endge and one good face. The sleepers arrive to us fresh sawn, but may partially season before being despatched from our facility. As the beams continue to dry, they may develop some shake and splits, but there will be no structural impact given their size.
Sleepers are ideal when used in retaining walls and the construction of raised beds/vegetable patches. We recommend that sleepers are joined together when used in this fashion, for which our steel staple pins are ideal. Sleepers are also often used in the manufacturing of garden furniture, such as the sleeper benches we supply.
