Gabion raised-beds: gabions for planting

Gabion raised-beds are not just aesthetically pleasing but also make gardening easier. In the gabions24 online shop, we have raised-beds in various sizes as well as tailor-made gabion beds.

The inner wire cage of a gabion raised-bed can be planted in various ways – with flower, vegetables or herbs. The external cage can be filled with natural stones. Thanks to their height, they are back-friendly and are less susceptible to weeds and pests. And, as the earth in the raised-bed warms up faster, they can be used earlier in the year. The delivery includes the floor grid, mesh for inside and outside the cage as well as all helixes, spacers and fleece.

Gabion raised-beds are hardy and robust

Gabion raised-beds are not just spring/summer garden highlights and you don’t have to do without them in the winter. Unlike terracotta pots whose porous structure takes in water that freezes during the winter leading to the pot breaking, gabion raised-beds are winterproof. The wire mesh cages from gabions24 have a galvanised coating to protect them from corrosion. If you choose to fill them with natural stone, you have no reason to fear the frost and snow.

Depending on the season, you can fill the inner wire cage of the gabion raised-bed with flowers, vegetables or herbs. Here, the filled wire mesh cage serves as a boundary. The interior space is lined with fleece and filled with earth.

Lining gabion raised-beds with coconut matting

In winter, you can line the gabion raised-beds with impregnated coconut matting. These are available in commercial garden centres as frost protection for potted plants, for example. The coconut matting is winterproof and can simply be placed against the wire mesh on the inside. Now, the gabions can be filled with earth and planted. The gabions can also be planted from the top and hanging or climbing plants can be placed into the sides of them.
