    I used ten gabions with nine infill panels to form a circular ‘Sone Lookout’ seating and fire pit area.
    The pallet arrived promptly and the gabions went together easily. Filled them with stones was a bit harder!

    Found the company very helpful with my requirements, Gabion’s made to the size needed and delivery promptly. Price was the best around and quality is great. Online instructions were very clear to follow.

    Gabions used for a low retaining wall. The Gabion1 website has lots of helpful advice and ideas for planning projects, and a really good range of gabions. Gemma and David responded quickly and made sure I had everything I needed for my project. Everything arrived well packed and sorted, and I’m really pleased with the service.

    I’m very pleased with the gabion basket that I ordered from Gabion1. I had a very awkward gap at the end of retaining structure, and I found perfectly sized components and all parts for assembly. The gabion basket was easy to construct, all parts fitted perfectly and the end result looks fantastic. I used large flintstones that were unearthed in recent groundworks, although I’d expect the flints to split over time. However there seems to be steady supply of it in the area.

    I ordered 5x cages to build a small retaining wall. As a competent DIY’er the online info was excellent for ensuring that I had the right mesh size and a full idea on how to progress the project from design to completion. I asked several questions via email and received full and accurate advice. Products ordered came quickly, securely packaged and as described. Erecting the baskets using the helicals was simple and effective. Great company to do business with. Recommend.

    Easy process, very useful website and instructions, yard manager was not only extremely helpful but also took the time to demonstrate the large and interesting alternative structures available – would not hesitate to use again

    I wanted gaboon’s to provide seating and to demarcate an area for a fire pit.
    Ordering was straightforward and instructions were helpful. The photos and comments also helped to inspire us to use a different materials.
    We decided to use broken up concrete slabs to make a contemporary “stone wall”.

    We have finished our gabion wall! Five baskets in total, one a slightly shorter size now topped with wood to form a bench seat.
    The helical coils make assembly very easy, but gloves are recommended throughout the construction and filling process. We chose the 4.5 mesh as advised and also used the tensioning wire provided just to keep things square.
    It couldn’t have worked out better! I am delighted.

    Excellent communication and customer service. We had a bank that needed reinforcement and had been quoted by serval builders. With the help of this company and the videos / tutorials we were able to complete the work ourselves. We are very happy with the results.
    Speedy service and great quality thank you.

    Strong, good looking gabions with no bulging. I used 4.5mm wire mesh and created a drystone wall effect on the front face using sandstone I already had from earlier demolition/building projects..
    Easy to assemble with useful on line videos.
    Very helpful staff, Gemma online and Wojtek at the depot when I collected mine.

    We are only doing a small project, removing large rocks that are supporting higher ground but have gradually moved and slid out of alignment with heavy rain etc. These will be replaced with the 5 gabions I have purchased. Website so helpful with how to use the gabions on different projects. Gemma and David returned all my emails promptly with quotes and helpful advice eg how much rock would be needed to fill the gabians and what size mesh I would need for my project. I also liked the helpful reminder email that was sent a couple of days later asking if I needed any more information. I would much rather deal with a family company that gives personal service, it does make all the difference. My gabians arrived even before I had received the email to inform me they were on the way! I would not hesitate to use this company again.
