Gabions are simple wire baskets that are usually filled with quarry stone. At first glance, these two main components seem rather sober and do not sound at all like a blooming garden with fragrant flowers or delicious fruit. But far from it, gabions have become more and more indispensable objects in outdoor areas in recent years. In a variety of uses, the wire meshes set real highlights. In our online shop at steinkorb-gabionen.de you can discover the entire range of gabions. You will be amazed at what is possible with these simple materials. We offer you the wire baskets and a different selection of stones as well as necessary accessories. Let us inspire you!
Gabions are robust wire baskets that are usually filled with natural stones. The word translated from Italian means "large cage", in German terms such as Gitterkörbe, Schüttkörbe or Steinkörbe are used as synonyms. Gabions are used in landscaping, for example, to support slopes, as privacy screens, noise barriers or boundaries. But the stone baskets also cut a good figure in the garden or on the terrace. They can be used as walls and fences, raised beds, pillars, rubbish bin cladding or decorative elements. There are hardly any limits to creative garden design with gabions. A wide variety of stone baskets can be easily ordered online in the Gabiona online shop.
If you are looking for a low-maintenance, year-round privacy screen or a property boundary, you are well advised to use fence gabions. Unlike some hedges, gabion walls offer sufficient protection from prying eyes even in autumn and winter and do not need to be cut. If you still don't want to do without greenery, you can, of course, plant or cover the stone baskets with vines. Alternatively, the stone wall can be broken up with other materials, such as granite steles or wooden elements. Alternatively, a wooden fence can also be combined with gabion columns.
Raised beds made of stone baskets can be ordered online from Gabiona in many standard sizes but also in custom sizes. The outer edge of the stone basket is filled with natural stones, the interior is lined with a fleece and filled with raised bed soil. The gabion raised beds can then be planted to your heart's content. The advantage: they make gardening particularly easy on the back. By lining it with pond liner, a raised bed can also be converted into a raised pond. Such a gabion pond saves a lot of work, as no hole has to be dug. If you love water, you can also install a waterfall element in a gabion wall or equip a gabion column with a water feature pump.
Benches and stools made of stone baskets are robust and low-maintenance seating for the garden and terrace. There are models where the seat is completely mounted on the gabion as well as variants where it floats freely between two stone baskets. Instead of solid stone baskets, plantable flower columns made of gabions can also be used for the benches. Longer gabion benches around corners are also possible.
Natural stones such as limestone, North Sea pebbles or granite gravel are classic filling materials for gabions. They are available in different sizes and colours and can be combined to form patterns. The gabion stones are delivered free to the kerbside on a pallet by a forwarding agent. In addition to natural stones, other creative filling materials for gabions are possible, but it is important to note the mesh size. Colourful plastic balls or glass chunks add colour to the gabion wall. Layered roof tiles, wooden planks or paving stones as well as round clay pipes, wooden stakes or bottles are geometric eye-catchers. And the wire baskets can also be filled with natural materials such as straw or pine cones.
