What should I replace this wood with? Any ideas?


Hi,

I'm going to tear out these old railroad ties, and I'm trying to figure out what to replace them with. Decorative stones? Something else?

Important -- take note of the slight slope from one sidewalk to the other. Will this limit my options?

Thanks!!

You could use pavers, cobblestone (or any type of small stone) or even pour a colored concrete to create a highlight.

I had 6x6 PT as a border for a sidewalk, driveway and as a retaining wall. This year I am taking them out, little by little, and am replacing them with stone. What a difference!
