New lawn with raised bed made from railway sleepers

Garden Plant Design’s latest from September ’17. The initial contact from our clients was for garden clearance and then to lay a new lawn with a surrounding raised bed made from railway sleepers.

Location: Higher Polsham Road, Paignton, Devon

  • To clear existing garden.
  • To construct a raised flower bed from Railway Sleepers.
  • To lay a new lawn with turf.

Project Timescale: 5 days
Key Features:

  • Clear and tidy garden with usable vegetable and planting area.
  • A functional and social space.

Clearance: A very damp morning.

Laying out the sleepers roughly in place for spacing. Originally 300mm borders but we decided with the client that 400mm borders were better suited.

Digging out for the footings for the step down on to the lawn. Our client then decided to extend the lawn area up to the back off the workshop.

All levelled, prepped and ready for the turf.


Finished work with a few of the clients own herbs planted for good measure.
