    We have a mountain of stone dug from our garden and the question was what to do with it – I wasn’t confident with dry stone walling (probably fall down) but my husband wasn’t sure when I said I wanted to use Gabions. However we have had so many positive comments from neighbours and passers-by who are very interested in the project – one man asked he could take a photo as he wanted to do something similar, and now there is no question of us finishing our project with Gabions. In my mind I can see a really contemporary garden – its taking shape bit by bit at a pace that we can control and I am designing as we go. They are really easy to construct and look very smart. Its giving us a perfect blend between modern which I love and the York stone cottage that we live in – best of both worlds. The customer service was excellent with quick delivery and I am really happy that I made the right choice. I’m on my second order with more to follow – by the end of the Summer I will have a superb garden.

    We really appreciated the advice on the gabions required as they were an unusual shape (tall and thin) to act as supports for a log store/table. They arrived when they said and were easy to construct and fill. Very pleased with the result and would definitely use Gabion1 again – just working out what the next project should be!

    After making enquires at other gabion suppliers and finding a limited range of sizes, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Gabion1 could supply a wide range of sizes, particularly small ones. The order was quickly processed and delivery was very quick too. the ease of assembly with the helical spring coils is amazing. A wonderful product. Thank you David

    I needed a small Gabion made to my own specifications and found the company very helpful. Very pleased with the result as well. Really excellent service.

    Adrian says:

    We wanted to use gabions to build a retaining wall and contacted Gabion1. David was very helpful with advice and recommendations to suit our requirements. The order and delivery process was quick and smooth and most importantly, the gabions look great! They were easy to assemble and the videos on their website were very useful. I’d highly recommend Gabion1.

    I have just used 4 gabions to make a raised bed and filled them with left over bricks and wood from a new extension. I faced them with branches and pebbles for a nice effect. I found the gabions really easy to build and work with and I am really pleased that I was able to recycle so much stuff, while making something that looks great and is really useful. I am currently planning my next gabion project and can’t wait to start it.

    Linda says:

    Excellent advice/info/ service and great quality product. Found this product when looking online for ideas to hold back a section of garden. Would not hesitate to use this company again.

  13. MP Anderton
    MP Anderton says:

    I had undertaken a lot of research online and had contacted several suppliers. Gabion1 contacted me back after I supplied them with the measurements for my small project. David quickly contacted my back offering great advice especially regarding the quantity of cobbles that I would require. This was the difference between Gabion 1 and other suppliers, his expertise in directing me to what I required was fantastic. The tailor made gabions are absolutely spot on. They arrived very quickly and as others have said are very easy to put together – especially when you watch the film clips first. Many thanks David and Gabion1 for all your assistance and help. I would happily recommend Gabion1 to friends and family.

    Very helpful and excellent, quick service. . The gabions are easy to assemble and look great. Delighted with my purchase

  15. Paul
    Paul says:

    Very good and quick service. Product is easy to construct and functions well. Used for a low garden wall and the result looks good. Added plastic ties to stabilise the frame work – not necessary but makes the gabion easier to fill. Also used thin clear plastic piping over any sharp ends.

  16. Russell
    Russell says:

    I can only echo previous comments. Delivery was very quick, everything was in the package and arrived in good condition, and they were simple to construct. I made life slightly difficult and long-winded for myself by constructing them over uneven ground, but eventually got it all connected together.

  17. John Prime
    John Prime says:

    David has been great , product is good, had delays due to carrier problems, but David sorted and used another carrier to get goods to me.

  18. Peter Coghill
    Peter Coghill says:

    A great product and a great help. David was really understanding during our fumbling attempts at deciding what gabions we needed. He answered our questions at once and when we, eventually, decided on what we needed the gabions wee dispatched promptly and arrived with us well packed. We’d definitely recommend Gabion1 to anyone thinking of a cheaper alternative to sleepers.

    Sandra says:

    I ordered some Gabions from this company, they were extremely helpful and informative with questions I had before I placed the order, super quick delivery, and very easy to assemble, I would definitely order from them again

  21. E Gerrard
    E Gerrard says:

    Prompt and professional service. Very happy with the quality of the products. I was grateful for the online instruction videos and the gabions were very easy to assemble. This is my first project using gabions. I would recommend Gabion1.

  22. Giles Westcott
    Giles Westcott says:

    I’ve always liked the idea of ornamental gabions and thought I would had a go at making my own from scratch. I did learn a lot but in the end, but I would have been better off doing a little more research and buying the ready-made ones. Cutting the wire panels is harder than it looks if you don’t have the right tools, and if, like me, you don’t have a good angle grinder, finishing off the sharp edges takes time and effort. The kitsets are a much better option – they are quick and easy to assemble using the helicals that are includes, and all the ends are cut clean with not jagged edges.
    Iain was really helpful and the service was prompt – happy to recommending Gabion1!

  23. Iain Prain
    Iain Prain says:

    Very happy with the quality and ease of construction with the helicals. Speedy delivery to remote location with thoughtful and helpful contacts from David at gabion1 to keep me informed and ensure there were no problems. You will find gabions cheaper elsewhere but not of this quality in style, usability and service. .Using mine for a garden wall project and very happy to recommend Gabion1. Iain

    Speedy service and very efficient. Looks good when complete. I have used flints, bricks, earth and bottles on various projects.

  26. Chris Boden
    Chris Boden says:

    First class service and advice from David via Email. I would recommend Gabion1 wholeheartedly. Customer service, quality product and timely delivery, what more can you ask for? Assembly of the kit sets was a doddle, having watched the video. I am so pleased with the results and more importantly, so is my wife. Will Email photos of the project which has prompted a lot of positive comments from neighbours.

    Excellent service and advice
    The cages are very easy to construct and fix, even though this was the first time we had used this system
    The online tutorials are very useful
    Would thoroughly recommend. Much better then the wooden sleepers that we replaced

  28. Lusia Muhler
    Lusia Muhler says:

    The gabion was brilliant, really easy to construct and looks really great. We filled it with gabion stone from an online merchant and the topper on the right is treated timber used as a preparation surface.

    Fantastic product, speedy service and your advice was invaluable!!!

  29. Richard
    Richard says:

    My new garden shed is going to be placed on a slightly elevated area of the garden that falls away towards the boundary fence. I needed a way to prevent it slipping. An L shaped retaining Gabion wall was my solution and I am delighted with the result. Cost effective, aesthetically pleasing and I did it myself. I will definitely consider the Gabion wall option again for future projects and will recommend it to my friends.
    Lesson learnt on the way – brace the long sides with internal wiring to prevent bulging as you fill the cage. I had to empty and start again because of this, my fault. But it did not take long to rectify. Also I propped boards on the outside as extra support to stop bulging while filling. It’s now perfect. Delivery on time , all faultless, great service.

    I ordered my gabions late in the week with a bank holiday weekend coming up on which I wanted to do the work. I talked with the company and they reassured me they would dispatch the gabions the next morning. I was having this email conversation late in the evening before!! I got my product delivered on time. Very pleased with this supplier, will use again.

    Easy to install, great product, fantastic service. The Gabions baskets arrived on time and we are very happy with my stream bank erosion project.

  32. Lynda Moore
    Lynda Moore says:

    I found David and Gabion 1 very helpful, as we had a purchased a house with an abandoned garden, and the retaining wall / rockery was just crumbling, but we were able to make a smart new retaining wall, and would recommend the product and the company,as easy to use and assemble, very prompt delivery. Very pleased with the end result.

  33. Jim
    Jim says:

    David and Gabion 1 are very helpful and professional. Quality products, delivered on time, as requested, all there, and importantly no missing bits. Since I have built my projects the gabions have stood the rest of time…. I will be ordering again!

  34. stewart leadley
    stewart leadley says:

    David at Gabion1 was very helpful and provided lots of very useful information for installation.

    For my retaining wall I opted for the 3mm wire to keep costs down slightly, but in hindsight i think 4.5mm would have been the better choice for my requirements. My wall was simply to replace to the old timber holding back some earth. We hand a lot of large stone in the garden which i used to fill the cages, this ended up more of a contained dry stone wall rather then a simple back fill of loose aggregate. All in all i’m happy with the outcome and will defiantly choose Gabion1 for my next project.

    I would happily recommend Gabion1 to anyone looking for gabions. All round top class service provided and a great product.

  35. Paula P Davies

    M Aye says:

    Great quality product; the one we have been looking for – in terms of idea, built and and actual product. We are very happy in deed with the end result; of course a bit of effort with sweats and sore back!

    Leon BP says:

    David has been very helpful with his advice and guidance. I haven’t actually built my wall yet, but I would recommend the service that I have received to date.

  39. Paul Baker
    Paul Baker says:

    I had not used gabions before and I needed some advice on loading and quantities. I emailed a copy of the plan to David and after a few emails we agreed on a specification. If we win the contract we will be ordering for Gabion1.

    Thank you for your time David.

  40. H Williams
    H Williams says:

    The only company I could find that made suitable sized gabions for what I wanted. Ordering was easy, delivery incredibly quick and the resulting landscaping looks amazing. By using stones from the garden and builders rubble as infill these have been excellent value to create a brilliant result. After sales contact also makes this a personal service. Highly recommended.

  41. Robert Frier
    Robert Frier says:

    We experienced really helpful advice when dealing with GABION1, it was our first order from them and they remained attentive throughout the design stage and responded speedily to every enquiry albeit a very small project, we will definately use them again.

    David was extremely helpful and rushed through my order of two gabions so that my husband got his present just before christmas! Phew!
    Unfortunately my husband has been so busy at work, the gabions have not been constructed. Watch this space for update!

    Kay Kirkwood says:

    Great communication, service, product and delivery. Will definitely be a returning customer. Now weather permitting …..its work in progress..

  44. Simon Copp
    Simon Copp says:

    I’m happy to say that the cages make a brilliant feature wall, simply put together and allowed us to reuse loads of rubble and facing stone saved from the garden, removing the need for skips and new store to be brought in. They were put together in no time and with minimal fuss, and filled easily over a few hours each evening for a few days. Service was brilliant, with plenty of advice, and the cages look great. Really different and a huge improvement on the rendered wall we had planned.
