I am filling in a little area in my mom's backyard to build her a shed. To accomplish this I had to create a 2 high railroad tie retaining wall to hold back the dirt on the low end. What have y'all found help the longevity of railroad ties? I am not looking to spend a bunch of time on this, but if there is something easy to do to help them last longer I am all ears. I was thinking putting some plastic between the ties and dirt. Maybe slathering some used oil on the ties before backfilling. Whatcha got?
