We were about to get our driveway resurfaced but before doing that we had to do something about the area at the side of the house. Originally there was a hedge up against the house and there were some untreated railway sleepers. When we had the house checked by the Pest Control people, many years ago, they advised us to get rid of the sleepers as they were the ideal place for termites to do their work. We took their advice and got rid of the sleepers and the hedge at the same time. The area has remained empty since then but we have now done something about it.
The timber was purchased, this time it is treated timber so there should be no termite issues. We dug out the area and set in the sleepers as a border for the resurfacing of the driveway.
We are pleased with the resurfaced driveway.
