Hardwood for landscaping project

Recommended Posts


I am landscaping my back garden and I am looking for around 60 metres of hardwood logs to retain the soil and create a border between a slightly raised flower bed and the lawn I intend to lay.
I'd like to edge the lawn with short (200mm high) logs, burried at the same depth. I've done my calcs and I think I need 60m of timber.
I want hardwood to ensure it lasts a while. 
Does anyone know where I can buy lengths of hardwood, uncut and around 100-200mm diameter?


I live in the Bristol area. I can arrange transport.

I am sure a Firewood processor on here will run those off for you as most processors will cut up to 500mm long to give you some extra length to bury.


S. Chestnut or Oak best.

That sounds ideal. I'd need a few over 500mm that i can easily cut myself - I have the technology, but not the wood :)
