A few years ago we landscaped our garden and used old sleepers for a
wall (4 high). Since then we've had a little boy and now realised that
it wasn't the most 'child-friendly' wall. Every time he sits or walks on
it he gets splinters; hence we have a problem. We were thinking of
covering them with some kind of screening but I'm not sure which would
be best. Obviously something like artifical grass would be ideal in
terms of softness but it would look silly. I was thinking of possibly
heather, willow or thatch screening but can't get to feel them to see if
they are soft enough or whether they also produce splinters. Any advice
would be gratefully received.
Are UK "sleepers" treated with the same sort of nasty possibly-carcinogenic
sludge that US railroad "ties" are treated with? If so, there might be an
argument made for removing them entirely. That certainly would get rid of
the splinter problem.
Are you incapable of using a dictionary, or instead prefer to
demonstrate to the entire world how you're as ignorant as a piece of
lumber... um, don't scratch your head, you'll get splinters. LOL
That recognition for most people is the beginning of wisdom, but not in
Brooklyn's/Shelly's case. If he didn't get negative attention for his
misogyny, and the rudeness of his potty-mouth, he wouldn't get any
attention at all. Do like most of us, and kill file the SOB. It will
save time, and aggravation uselessly wasted on him..
