    What should I lay sleepers onto, I can’t imagine straight onto soil is ideal so I was thinking of concrete square pads at the end of each sleep so they have some support

    is the best way or lay a try mix under the sleepers so it goes off over time

    Thanks

    More details required I'm afraid as it depends on what the sleepers will be doing. Are they going to be stacked and retain a raised bed or suchlike (and if so how tall?). Possibly laying a couple of inches of type 1 or gravel should suffice if the sleepers aren't holding up (or back) a load
