Multifaceted garden design
Gabions are not an invention from landscaping, but were used in medieval warfare to protect soldiers. Today they are mainly used as noise protection along motorways and motorways and as bank stabilisation. In contrast to other measures, gabions are used mainly because they are easy to maintain and quick to erect.
Gabions have been used in gardens and front gardens for several years. They are not only used as property boundaries, but also for decorative elements such as flower columns, gabion furniture or gabion raised beds. You can decide whether you need prefabricated wire baskets or whether you prefer a custom size, depending on the space available. The flower columns can be set up discreetly and provide selective highlights. However, you can also line up a whole row of the wire baskets filled with stones. This creates a boundary between two areas or even a patio border. There are no limits to your interior design ideas.
Properties and characteristics of the gabion flower columns
Our gabion flower columns and flower benches are ready for immediate use, because the gabion elements are completely welded and delivered in one piece. The hot-dip galvanised stone baskets with a mesh size of 5 x 5 centimetres are suitable for both outdoors and indoors and consist of an outer and an inner basket. With an integrated flower pot in the inner basket, which is included in the delivery, the flower columns made of gabions can be planted without any problems. The outer wire basket of the plant gabion can be filled with natural stones, granite pavers or quarry stone. Gabion stones, soil and plants are not included in the delivery and must therefore be purchased separately.
Areas of application for the planting gabions
Stylish, robust and, above all, durable: thanks to their zinc-aluminium coating, our flower columns made of stone baskets are optimally protected against corrosion. Even continuous pouring rain cannot harm the wire basket. But that's not all, because you can not only plant your gabions, but also easily transform them into chic furniture. With the help of seat pads, you can combine two or more of our gabion flower columns into a pretty bench in no time at all; a side table can also be easily created from unplanted gabion columns and our Cumaru accessory wood. The flower bench can also be converted into a gabion bench in just a few simple steps.
Since the flower columns can be used both as outdoor and indoor decoration, the unusual plant pots also lend themselves to a large entrance area of flats or houses.
Finding the right stone filling
You are spoilt for choice - the design with the right gabion stones is what gives the flower column the desired look. Depending on the colour scheme, a Mediterranean or Nordic-cool atmosphere can be created. The selection in our online shop is huge and you are sure to find the right gabion stones for your flower column.

Wide range of plants for the gabion flower columns
Plant gabions can be individually embellished and you have complete freedom in the choice of planting. Whether a large palm tree, climbing plants or a colourful sea of flowers - decorate according to your taste. Aromatic herbs can also be arranged in it. We have summarised the most popular plants for flower columns made of gabions:
If you decide on a colourful mixture, you must take into account which plants need a lot of water - i.e. are strong growers - and which have a low requirement - the so-called weak growers.
Furthermore, it is important to know when the flowering periods are. If you have chosen only early bloomers, the flower column will remain green after flowering. However, if you use different plants, you can enjoy a colourful flower column all year round.
