Before You Install

Ekologix Garden Sleepers are a non-structural landscape product and are suitable for garden edging, creating garden beds and can be used for a garden wall up to a height of 600mm. For heights greater than 600mm council approval and certification may be required, as a result we recommend you seek advice from an engineer and contact your council for your local requirements.

Wear personal protective clothing such as dust mask and safety goggles when cutting.
