Anybody ever use railroad ties around ponds like you see on golf courses? I seen where they're used to cause separation between the water and turf etc for a nice clean look? Just curious if any of you have experienced with this sort of thing. Working on a project at a small lake that has a dam. Along the dam is 2-3" of rip rap at the bottom than grass gradually tapering up about 7-8" to the top. Too steep for a mower to run on. Objective is to change the rip rap look and also the final grade won't go down to the water but to the retention wall of railroad ties, timbers, block etc for a clean look and for a ZTR to ride on. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
