Plastic landscape timbers made from recycled materials

Pots to Planks: A Green Alternative to Railroad Ties

Plastic landscape timbers made from recycled materials

Many of St. Louis’ yards feature old, rotting railroad ties, used for edging and retaining walls.  If that describes your yard, it’s time to upgrade to an option that is both environmentally friendly and durable.  In conjunction with St. Louis Green, Quiet VillagePlastic planters are converted into planks for landscaping timbers. Landscaping now offers plastic landscape timbers made out of recycled horticultural plastic containers such as planters, trays and pots.

These timbers are heavy-duty, long-lasting, and attractive.  The timbers come in two sizes: 6 x 6 inch and 8 feet long and 6 x 6 inch and 4 feet long.  They are ideal for edging, raised beds, and retaining walls.  Keeping waste out of landfills and beautifying your lawn—it’s a win-win!
