    Hi: My name is Ray and I live in Seattle. I have some RR ties and want to make a retaining wall 2 or 3 RR ties tall. How did you make your wall so it would not fall down - I thought of drilling holes and driving steel conuit. Also I have heard that the creosote and other chemicals in RR ties are poisonous and should not be used around edible plants. Will greatly appreciate your reply. Thank you Ray Branham Email;
