Hi all

I will upload some more pics soon, but heres a few to show our results so far. 

Thank you to who advised we sink the sleepers flat and level with the soil and grass, mowing has been much easier for my bf

That really looks good! I love it!

lovely, and without being too sexist, well done to your bf.

wow, that looks fab ! I'm waiting to get sleepers on my flower beds too.  I shall look at yours in the meantime

That looks so neat!  Good job!  And great idea!  My plan is to build a raised bed veggie plot with sleepers and I was wondering about a mowing edge.  Great idea to sink a sleeper!  And there's some parts of my garden where gravel meets grass or border.  Sleepers would do the trick.  Thanks for the tip!

Where did you get your sleepers from Missymr ?

10/06/2014 at 13:50

That looks so smart with the sleepers. I am also very envious of your lawn!

10/06/2014 at 17:30

That looks really great, lovely lawn too

10/06/2014 at 18:09
That looks amazing! Would never have thought about sinking the sleepers! The person who suggested it definitely needs credit

Brilliant job and brilliant idea.  It looks fabulous!

10/06/2014 at 19:00

Lovely, looks very effective and I'm jealous of your lawn too!
