Gabion stone fences
Embankment protection and garden fencing
Van Aalsburg B.V. has extensive experience in installing gabions, also known as stone baskets. We distinguish between two types of baskets: for embankment protection and for garden fencing.
Gabions for embankment protection consist of a galvanised steel basket construction, which is reinforced with spacers or partitions. The baskets are placed flat on the embankment: from 1 metre under the waterline to 1 metre above it.
In the event of a weak embankment or riverbed, a retaining wall is sometimes built first, which serves as the foundation for the baskets. The baskets are filled with rocks or riprap. The baskets are sometimes stacked on top of each other to form several layers. The bank along the waterline thus remains undamaged and the gabions provide excellent protection. Flexible, sustainable and maintenance-friendly.
Our baskets add more atmosphere and style to your garden. They also often serve as practical fencing and are easy to install. They are also handy as planters, as a stand-alone decorative object or as protection against ram raids.
You can design your own baskets. We make them exactly to your requirements. You are guaranteed the shape and size to suit your garden and home. The possibilities are endless.
