Our gabion stone is sourced from selected quarries and processed to high standards to ensure consistency in size and shape, an important factor when it comes to the appearance and stability of gabion baskets.
The natural, rustic appearance of gabion basket stones means they can blend seamlessly with the environment, making them suitable for both functional and decorative applications.
The use of gabion stone is not only a practical choice but also an environmentally friendly one. These stones promote natural drainage and help in reducing soil erosion, making them a sustainable option suitable for a range of design and architectural applications. In terms of strength and stability, gabion stone provides robust support to structures, particularly when it comes to erosion control and retaining walls, ensuring both longevity and durability.
Baskets filled with gabion stones are an indispensable part of many coastal and sea defence projects as they effectively absorb and dissipate wave energy.
Gabion stone is a popular choice for other civil engineering projects too, where it is used to build retaining walls. A gabion wall is made of stacked stone-filled gabions tied together with wire, which are usually angled back towards the slope or stepped back with the slope, rather than stacked vertically.
The aesthetic appeal of gabion stone means it has also been used to create striking features in gardens, parks and other public and private spaces.
The robustness and stability of our gabion stone makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, while our efficient and reliable delivery services means it is widely available across the UK.
