Gabion1.com and David were very responsive. I wanted a size that wasn’t listed, and sent a query, it turns out they had more sizes, and I got just what I wanted. I built a small landscape retainer for a young olive tree on a bank. The parts came right away, the rock amounts to order were just right, and I was able to build it in about a week by myself with granite rocks for sides and small granite for center. The helical wires allowed me to tie the sections together, and it’s holding very well after a month. As this is out in my front yard it’s very visible, and I’m getting lots of compliments.
Do you sell a steel mesh for a rusted natural look?
Untreated mesh may only last 5yrs or so before the rust weakened wire snaps under the weight of the rocks, and then the rocks will fall out
Our galfan treated gabions will last over 50 yards in non marine environments.
Gabion1 website and customer service is excellent and all of my questions were.answered very quickly. .The product is also very well engineered and goes together quickly to form a very strong wall system that I was able to build for about half the cost of stacked block.
It would be useful to provide the ‘stiffeners’ that attach to the front a then side of the gabion cages.
You previously provided these but they were not included in my last order.
Your order was supplied with a roll of bracewire, to be used for bracing the face panels as per our assembly videos http://localhost/gabion_new/gabion-assembly-video/
We were really impressed by all the help we received from the Gabion1 team. David went above and beyond to help us find the right combination of baskets we needed for our erosion control project. I definitely do not regret to follow David’s advice to go with the 3/16th wiring for our project…
Everything was well packaged in a pallet and assembly was easy. I definitely recommend installing bracewire as indicated on the installation instructions.
Great experience…. The hardest part was moving the tons of rip rap rocks we needed to fill the cage.
Ordering and delivery went without a hitch. It took me a while to get my little project finished but when I finally got started, it was easy. The 15x51x36″ bench serves a bus stop in front of my house. The seat is constructed of redwood. I used the 3/16 mesh as suggested so it is plenty rigid. All I have talked to like the aesthetics, simplicity and durability of the finished product.
It got such attention that a group of neighbors and I want to build some more for other locations. We plan to construct five or eight, depending on cost. All benches will be in public spaces and should create more buzz than mine did.
I found the website very easy to navigate, and my pricing inquiries were answered promptly. I ordered 12 feet of baskets, and was impressed with the quality, the ease of assembly and the final appearance when filled with the stones that I hand selected. I will definitely contact Gabion 1 again if I ever have another project requiring gabion baskets.
Excellent service. Very responsive to initial query and completion of order. Good communication from staff about delivery and subsequent queries. And from a man who has historically struggled with ikea kits very simple to assemble. Would recommend to anybody
David at Gabion1 was very helpful and provided lots of very useful information for installation.
For my retaining wall I opted for the 1/8th wire to keep costs down slightly, but in hindsight i think 3/16th 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.
Really easy to put together and very attractive when done. The Gabions we have put in around our somewhat sloping section have contributed greatly to the usefulness of the land area we have, and the attractiveness of the property. Shipping has been prompt with the orders we have made to date. Highly recommend Gabion1.
Do you service Texas? We have a big project and believe your product would work well!
Yes we ship to Texas, just email, us your requirements, and we will take it from there, Thanks David Bird
My husband and I picked gabion walls because we needed to construct a large retaining wall and wanted to save ourselves as much money as we possibly could! I am absolutely amazed at the final result and service provided by Gabiob1. I would recommend anyone who’s up for a bit of hard work to do it! Bianca Jonson
Great product, great service. Thanks very much.
We ordered 3 Gabion’s 3/16th welded 7′ x 24″ x 12″ for our storm water runoff project. The ordering, shipment and assembly all went perfectly. They are quality material and have performed as advertised. Great product!
Great communication, service, product and delivery. Will definitely be a returning customer. Now weather permitting …..its work in progress..
We used 5 of Gabion1’s 3/16th mesh 18″x18″x4′ for our project. Response time was prompt, delivery was efficient and used minimal packaging. Gabions have performed just as we hoped and look just as pictured.
5 stars from us.
