Woodblocx and alternative to Railway Sleepers
WoodBlocX is a revolutionary new product for garden landscaping. It fits together using large plastic dowels to create strong raised beds, planters, retaining walls, ponds, kerbing or special garden features. The BlocX are topped with bevelled capping to give an elegant finish to the whole job.
The wood is specially selected pine from sustainable forests. It is treated so as to give it a service life of over 20 years in ground contact. The dowels are made from recycled plastic and have a patented locking action when assembled. This means that your raised bed, pond or retaining wall will form one large rigid structure with many connections to hold it together. Because of this WoodBlocX structures need no foundations and will not crack or break with time. Your retaining wall will not fail your raised pond will not collapse your raised beds will stay straight, neat and strong!
WoodBlocX is easy and fun to build. The pieces are light enough to carry and you don't need special tools to put it together. Don't use old railway sleepers! They are no cheaper, much harder to work with and will break your back. WoodBlocX is more attractive and will last longer.

Q: what timber is used for woodblocx?

Q: do i have to put a protective coating on my woodblocx structure once l have built it?
A: no. as explained above, woodblocx is pressure treated and surface treatments are not necessary at all.
Q: do i need a liner in my raised beds?
A: we would recommend putting a liner and drainage medium in all our structures. especially so if you are planning on using manure or organic fertilisers to grow with.
Q: what maintenance do i need to carry out on my woodblocx structure?
A: none at all! if after many years you want to freshen it up you can pressure wash the structure to remove any green staining and can replace the capping, but the wall will require nothing.
