To ensure that the gabions are not only functional, but also a real embellishment of the garden, gabion accessories are necessary in a multi-faceted selection. As a gabion column or relaxing bench - stone fillings in an imposing wire basket look particularly noble.

What are gabions?
Originally, gabions were used in road construction to screen off certain areas, secure slopes or protect residents from traffic noise. For some years now, the wire baskets filled with stones have also found their way into private gardens and front yards.
Originating from Italian, "gabbione" means large cage, and this is also what the timeless boundaries look like. A wire basket, whose components are firmly connected with the right gabion accessories, is filled with stones. Everything is possible, from small variants to large privacy fences.
Stone gabions look puristic and timeless, they require little maintenance and can be erected in a very short time. Gabion accessories help to ensure that the stability is maintained for a long time.
Many different types of gabions
Gabions are becoming more and more common in gardens. They protect against prying eyes from neighbours, ensure that weeds do not make their way in from outside and can also keep out annoying wind. Fences are one way to build up the wire mesh, gabions are also valuable gardening accessories.
Raised beds made of stone gabions
As a fence, stone gabions protect your privacy to a high degree, but the boundaries can also be transformed into visual highlights as raised beds. In addition to the wire basket and matching stones, you will need gabion accessories such as clips, clamps or lids to complete the overall picture. The gabion accessories also provide the necessary stability. After construction and filling, the inside can be lined with foil to prevent the soil from slipping through the gaps. The planting is done according to your wishes: with herbs, lettuce or hanging flowers. The design possibilities are almost endless thanks to the gabion accessories. The wire basket can also be transformed into a herb snail.
Gabions as flower pots
Exotic plants, palms or beautifully flowering oleanders want to be put in the limelight. Instead of a simple flower pot, stone gabions are also suitable for this purpose. Round, square or rectangular - inside the stone filling, flower pots can be hidden invisibly and the magnificent plants become an absolute eye-catcher. With the right gabion accessories such as spacers or fastening clips, the unique flower pots are securely erected and can be filled with natural stones of your choice.
Create cosiness with seating furniture
Have you ever thought about installing a lounge corner in your garden? The biggest advantages of stone gabion garden furniture are its indestructibility and easy-care handling. The benches or seating areas are permanently installed outdoors and can survive the winter months there without damage.
In addition, you can use them to conjure up inexpensive lounge furniture, such as benches and tables, that will give you many years of pleasure. To ensure the necessary stability even under heavy weight loads, gabion accessories such as spacers or covers should not be missing. Wooden boards are attached to the wire basket filled with stones and decorated with cushions to create a cosy seating area.
What gabion accessories are needed for assembly?
The installation of stone gabions is quite simple. You hardly need any tools, even children can help. Measure the area for your gabions. If it is a larger structure, the wire basket should be set in concrete; for smaller raised beds or flower pots, a level base is sufficient.
The stylish design elements in your garden are functional and at the same time timelessly beautiful. To secure them properly and protect them from buckling, you need gabion accessories to ensure they stand properly.
Post shoes are placed at the outer ends to give the wire frames a secure footing. Spacers help so that filling with the heavy stones does not bend the metal posts. If you are planning a long fence, it is advisable to place fence posts in the individual wire baskets to give the construction more stability. These are concreted in during construction and thus firmly anchored to the ground. You can then fill in the wire baskets; the fence post is now no longer visible.
To ensure a secure finish, the gabions can be covered. Individual wire baskets can be set up not only linearly, but in any shape. To ensure that they are firmly connected to each other, secure them with staples.
If you are looking for an unusual privacy screen for your outdoor area, stone gabions are ideal. They can be built to any length, but can also be divided with the right gabion accessories and installed as an interrupted wall. The spaces in between can be used as hedges or planted with climbing plants.
If you are using your gabion fence to demarcate a small area, it is sufficient to build it only at a low height. Integrate small flower pots into the mesh and the stone infill and add colourful highlights with plants.
Which gabion accessories are suitable for beautifying?
The meshes of a gabion fence are almost sufficient for decorating. Small flower pots with climbing plants can be hidden in them, which then grow almost invisibly out of the stones.
If you use the privacy screen to demarcate your property, gabion accessories should not be missing. For example, a letterbox should be attached so that letters and important items can be delivered without any problems. In our online shop, we offer you a model in an equally timeless look. It is simply attached to the stone gabion with the matching connecting clips. A security lock protects against unauthorised access.
Metal raised beds can also be built on a fence and planted magnificently. They serve as the end of the fence element.
