The big boy Lego blocks

Gabion Baskets consist of a steel wire cage that is shaped and filled with dump rock or pebbles. Gabion comes from the Italian word “gabbione”, which means “big cage”.

They are used in civil engineering, landscaping, and road works, for soil erosion and foundation construction. They come in various designs to meet functional requirements and are particularly used in South Africa as retaining walls to hold back slopes and as flood control in storm waterways.

Here at Nicolas Plants, we have taken it one step further. The use of gabion baskets is not limited to only being used for support and foundational strengthening, but as a design element in landscaping.

Gabion baskets can be used to add appeal to pillars and walls, as well as provide functionality in the garden. From building tables supported by gabion baskets to benches, made from gabion baskets.

In this project, the gabion baskets have been used to build seating areas, side tables and a fireplace. These projects are cost-effective and easy to do. 

Create water features and outdoor entertainment areas without breaking the bank.

And all these items can be found in our nursery or online store.

And even gabion cage planters!
