Custom-made gabion columns add that certain something to any garden - whether large, small, narrow or spacious. For some years now, stone baskets have become a real trend. There are hardly any limits to the design wishes - they can be designed entirely according to one's own taste. With custom-made gabion columns, gardeners not only have a wide choice of different stone fillings - the size can also be optimally matched to the green oasis.
Made-to-measure gabion columns
Gabions are baskets filled with quarry stones that can be used as privacy screens, garden furniture or planting objects. Originally used in military defence, they have found their way into domestic garden paradises in recent years. Instead of a wooden fence or a conventional raised bed, custom-made gabion columns add visual accents.
A cage-like border made of corrosion-resistant wire mesh with galvanic coating provides an optimal foundation. Once erected with the required spacers, the quarry stones find a secure place in it. The modern garden design can be enhanced with light, dark or other colours. Integrated into a privacy fence, the custom-made gabion columns are a real eye-catcher.
Areas of application for gabions
Filled stone baskets can be used in different ways in the garden. As raised beds, they offer a large planting area for sensitive plants at a height that is easy on the back. But a privacy fence is also a good choice for keeping out prying eyes from the neighbours. There are hardly any limits to your creativity. Gabions and gabion columns made to measure also lend themselves to beautification in the following variations:
At first glance, wire baskets look very plain. But with the right filling material that matches the rest of your garden design, they blend in perfectly.
Endless design possibilities with custom-made gabion columns
Stone gabions with customised dimensions can find their place in the garden in a variety of ways. Once erected - no tools are required for assembly - they will last a lifetime. Cleaning is also quickly done with a conventional garden hose.
If you are planning a property boundary fence as a gabion wall, it is advisable to erect a gabion column after every metre to give the structure more stability. If the length and height of the privacy screen are individual, the gabion columns must also be planned to measure so that the final result is a coherent picture.
At first glance, garden furniture made of gabions seems very spartan, but it turns out to be a feel-good object for many years. Whether as a simple bench to rest on or as a huge seating lounge - with the gabion columns made to measure, you create a perfect place to retreat to after your work is done.
Advantages of customised dimensions
With regard to the size and height of the gabion columns, you can fall back on prefabricated models or opt for individual dimensions that perfectly match your other gabions. Whether square or round - we offer our custom-made products entirely according to your specifications. Our online configurator is self-explanatory and reliably records your data. You can choose from different mesh sizes to select the right wire basket:

We will then make your gabion column to measure and prepare it for shipping. All additionally required materials such as grids, spacers, spirals or C-rings are included in the delivery.
In the last step, you decide on the desired filling material. Our selection is huge and can also be combined with each other. This allows you to create patterns and accents that you won't find in any other garden. Your filled gabion column made to measure will become a real eye-catcher and unique specimen.
