Garden flower beds and raised flower beds can be easily made using railway sleepers. Oak railway sleepers are often used to build planters or garden beds and wooden sleepers make a great frame for planter boxes annd flower beds which can be raised as high as you choose. This video shows a garden planter or flower bed which is two sleeprs high but they can be built higher or used as just one garden sleeper high. Joi9ning the sleepers can be done a few ways but we prefer to keep the fixing watertight by using timber dowels, made from a broom handle and some adhesive. All of the tools you see being used here can be found in the DIY Doctor toolstore at
