Are garden sleepers and railway sleepers the same?

The terms garden sleeper and railway sleeper are often used as interchangeably and although they are similar in appearance and function, they are not precisely the same.

Railway sleepers

Railway sleepers are wooden or concrete beams used to support and stabilise railway tracks, while a garden sleeper is primarily used for landscaping and garden projects. This is why you will sometimes find reclaimed railway sleepers and crossing timbers for sale.

Garden sleepers

Garden sleepers are often made from treated softwood, hardwood, or reclaimed wood (sometimes from railway sleepers) and are usually smaller in size than railway sleepers, meaning they’re more commonly used for garden edging projects. They are also lighter and easier to handle than railway sleepers, which can be extremely heavy and difficult to move.

Overall, while garden sleepers and railway sleepers share some similarities, they are two different products with different purposes and characteristics.

Can wooden sleepers be used for garden edging?

Absolutely. Garden edging can come in a wide variety of materials and styles including logrolls, terracotta tiles, brick, gravel, stone, metal, flower based, and even picket fencing. However, wooden edging using railway sleepers and other forms of timber edging is one of the most popular choices. This is because wooden sleepers offer a natural and warm aesthetic to any garden, working well for both traditional and modern garden settings.
