    Hello,

    I plan to use sleepers to divide a gravel parking area and a turfed area. If the sleepers are sat in to the ground around 3 or 4" deep would I need to sit them on a small bed of concrete or simply on the ground.

    Many thanks

    Hi,
    I've sat mine on a gravel and sand bed to allow water to drain, with a dpc strip stapled to the turf side.
    I don't know if this is best practice, but the sleepers have been down for years without issue!
