half constructed retaining wall with railway sleepers

Spring time is DIY time!

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and when we’re looking to create a setting of character and integrity the decision to use quality natural products means it only makes sense to then use quality components to keep it all together – long term.
As the season for DIY & professional improvement services is upon us – and our living spaces, it is time to spruce up for the summers dose of R&R. Let us take a moment and evaluate how much, and how long we would like to reap the rewards.

Springs and brackets for hammock

Building and maintaining landscape and architectural projects, big or small can be gratifying in many ways, though can be heavy work and generally something to be done once and done right.

One would be best to avoid the burden of re-designing and reconstructing every Spring & Summer where possible in order to relax and add value to any setting worth working on. This is achieved through adequate material selection and how it’s assembled.

Rustic hardwoods and recycled railway sleepers were produced with a high enduring functionality in mind. A simple task to stay firm, strong, rot resistant and in place one would think; though these superior manufacturing & grading processes worldwide are now the reason end of product life users like ourselves retain and contribute so much value, utility and calibre from something that is ‘recycled or salvaged’ and has already served its intended purpose.

Putting these reclaimed timbers to good use with the workmanship and complimentary materials they are worthy of will ensure your project will not only stand the test of time, but also look and work as it should for decades to come. Make it an investment in quality for long yielding returns in your project, R&R and peace of mind.
