    Default Cheap sleepers?

    Hi all,
    been a while since I visited the forum.

    Anyone in the Werribee, Hoppers area in Melbourne know a source of cheapish sleepers?

    I want to make a few garden beds and find the prices in the local shops outrageous.

    I have also been told not to use treated pine for veggies as they can leak toxins into the soil. I am not ready to start glowing yet so I would like to avoid treated wood.

    cheers

    What prices are you being quoted?

    Regum sleepers are $15 for 200x50mm x2.4m & $24 for 200x75mm x 2.4m at Bunnings.

    Hey BB. Yep that is about the price.

    Unless I can find some cheaper I will just use some house bricks I have lying around. I'm not too fussed how it looks , just want functionality as I will be growing vegies.
