Railroad ties can be an excellent solution to a variety of landscaping challenges. While they are perfect for many applications, they work particularly well for retaining walls, raised beds and to line driveways and wide walkways. Average 8.5 ft railroad tie weighs approximately 250-400 lbs each, so you must plan accordingly if you are to pick them up yourself.
