Benefits of Eco-Friendly Treated Sleepers

22nd March 2018

More and more people are looking at ways in which they can develop their properties or improve their outdoor spaces without impacting upon the environment. Our eco-friendly treated sleepers can play a big role in making your home or garden more beautiful and you can install them knowing that they are sourced sustainably and treated using non-toxic chemicals. We use Tanalith E preservative during the treatment process, which is safe and not harmful to the environment, as well as being robust and long lasting. The eco-treated sleepers that we offer come in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes, from full-size landscaping sleepers to mini brown treated softwood sleepers. These are just a few of the main advantages:

  • Sourced sustainably
  • Treated using non-toxic chemicals
  • Ensure longevity
  • Attractive finish
  • Ideal for building and landscaping

Everything you’d want in a sleeper, and more!

We’ve also added a New Eco Treated Softwood Sleeper to our collection, and this achieves an attractive silver/grey finish with the bleaching effect of the sun. It can take around 3 to 6 months for the silver colour to really come through, and it’s perfect for all garden uses, water features, decking, patios, raised beds and borders. The treatment is completely safe for children and pets alike whilst it’s super light and easy to handle too. An eco-friendly garden is a big step towards reducing your carbon footprint. More people are starting to realise the importance of eco-living, however, our gardens often go ignored and untouched, but that really doesn’t have to be the case.
