    We had a pretty major event in Auckland on Auckland anniversary which caused a bit of flooding at our place and needed a rethink on our landscaping and overland waterflow.

    Did a bunch of research and spoke to a bunch of people in the know and it all pointed to using a gabion solution at the rear of the section – would look great and allow water to continue it’s journey to the mighty Manukau….

    Dave and team were great – great support as we looked at options – told us what would work and wouldn’t and the product turned up and was super easy for my 15-year old son and I to install.

    Photos to come (just waiting to reseed lawn as had to redo some associated drainage / levels – too easy even for us that live in Auckland (although originally from Taranaki and the Hawkes Bay).!

    Fast delivery, easy to set up and modify length for a last minute change, very happy with the end result for retaining gravel rock.

    A great process of learning on the excellent website, watching the tutorials, contacting Gabion1 with our order, and receiving the Gabion retaining wall hardware.
    All very well packed and delivered, with the necessary assembly helical and brace wire.
    A seamless and very professional company, with good contact along the way. We are well through the build process and it is going very well.
    Thanks David & team.

    From day one, I have had amazing service ,the team at gabion 1 listened to my request and delivered 100% . The gabions themselves are of great quality and the assembling of them is a piece of cake. Once I have finished my project I will be sending pics of these great gabions.

    Thanks again

    I bought a number of Baskets. The are very easy to construct and put together. Great for a small retaining wall.
    I have found then very good to deal with. Quick to get the order underway and delivery fast.
    I would highly recommend them. I will definitely be using them again for my next project.

    Awesome, as I expected classy and easy to assemble. Just the job for side of house wind break and privacy. Once the living plant wall matures she’ll be a million bucks.

    Sure David,
    I would be happy to take pics and send to you.
    I want more Gabon structures for around my bush bath – any suggestions. Arches or BBQ type structures perhaps.
    We are digging out the footings for them at the moments.

    Kind regards,

    Gabion1 has been a pleasure to deal with. Great price, quick responses and very eager to help. Will definitely use again when the need for more gabion walls arise in future builds.

    Delivery of gabion kit-set baskets was prompt. Good range of sizes (including customised gabions) made it easy to align with plan. We are very pleased with the final product.

    Rena says:

    We used Gabion1 baskets to build a 29m fence and found them excellent and easy to use. The service was also superb. All of our questions/emails were answered promptly, and the product was delivered within a few days. Terrific customer service all round.

  12. Nick
    Nick says:

    Baskets were easy to put together — lining them up a bit trickier on an uneven site, but looks OK. The stone supplier delivered boulders which I had to break down with a sledgehammer… Very pleased with the end result.

  13. Graeme
    Graeme says:

    It was great to get the Gabion so quick. The kids and I found the installation really easy.. the letterbox stand looks heaps better than the single farm post!!

  14. Fiona Musticone
    Fiona Musticone says:

    I found Gabion1 to be good value, even with delivery a lot more reasonable than any local quote I could get. Gabions were easy to assemble and delivery was fast. Highly recommend and will use again for my next project.

    Stuart Howard says:

    Brilliant! After years of DIY disasters, I live in fear of having to assemble anything I’ve bought. This product couldn’t have been easier – all very logical and simple and a quality, long-lasting outcome. Highly recommended.

    FANTASTIC! The service, communication and product is awesome, I used two baskets to create a mailbox (hopefully pictures will be posted) and I could not be happier. The guys at Gabion1 are great to deal with and I will be buying from them again for my next project (Subject to wife approval, lol).

    Thank you so much guys.

    Great service, excellent quality and easy to put together. I would highly recommend to anyone looking and building a Gabion, we are so pleased with our end result (water feature).

  21. Les Craig
    Les Craig says:

    We decided to place two Gabions at our entrance. We are so very pleased with the result we can’t thank you guys enough for your amazing product. After initial procrastination on my behalf they were real easy to assemble and complete. Thanks so very much. we are getting so many good responses on the amazing change to our property.

  22. Peter Woodhouse
    Peter Woodhouse says:

    Excellent product and great service, also reasonably priced. Couldn’t be easier to assemble, pity gathering all the rocks wasn’t as quick! We would have to recommend considering these gabions for all sorts of projects.

  23. Brian Reason
    Brian Reason says:

    Incredibly efficient and helpful service it is hard to see how any company could be more customer orientated. Very pleased with your help and the baskets, everyone who sees them say how awesome they look. Thanks guys.

    Bary & Margie Scott says:

    Very happy with service from Gabion, fantastic product… something different & we are very happy with the end result. Bary & I have done stone walls on the front fence in between hedging & the effect is great. Thank you Gabion1. 🙂

    Great service from Gabion1, we got some good advice and the baskets arrived promptly. It’s still a work in progress but those that are completed look fantastic!

    Excellent Choice for tidying up a very dismal area around our house. Will be ordering more!

    Pete Davies says:

    Basket arrived very quickly , and after raiding several Canterbury rivers I had enough stones to fill it.
    Makes an eye catching feature in my fern garden.

    Steve Townsend says:

    Once the decision was made to “jazz” the old wooden seawall up with something a bit different that would suit our coastal waters edge property, a review of your very comprehensive and well constructed web site ensued, then a speedy email swap followed to organize a set of custom sized cages. The ordering process was seamless with lightening fast delivery to Northland and the process couldn’t have been easier. The cage construction was made easy with the online you tube demo, I didn’t get it quite to the 4 minutes per cage but wasn’t far off!. Filling the cages was a learning curve to keep the fronts from sagging, but trial and error made the process easier as I proceeded. I thoroughly recommend the product, as well as being a beautiful, and satisfying project, it’s a very cost effective way to add an interstellar value to a landscaping plan. The first comment from the beach was “looks a million dollars, mate”, very rewarding I must say, but not for sale lol.

  29. Louise
    Louise says:

    We can’t recommend Gabion1 highly enough. Once they confirmed our order it was 2 days until I received the Gabion. Everything was provided and instructions were very easy to follow. Our end product was just what we wanted and looks perfect in its new home.

  30. Briar
    Briar says:

    Really happy with the gabions, we have used several to create a massive planter box around the bottom of a large palm, as pillars for a screen, and between sleepers to retain a garden and border the bbq area. They look great, are solid and will have longevity. Better yet, they’ve enabled us to use the masses of volcanic rock on site and really tie the garden together. Would certainly use again. Easy to put together and take a bit of filling! If I had my time again, I would weed mat under them and use weed mat/polythene etc to line the planter box to help prevent soil spilling through. Great service, easy to deal with and really speedy delivery.

  31. Travis
    Travis says:

    We are really happy with the mesh panels we picked up from Gabion. Our project was a little unusual: a hay feeder for goats. However they serve their purpose well. Our goats are happy that their hay doesn’t fall on the ground, and that makes us happy because we don’t end up wasting as much hay.

  32. Mike Odgers
    Mike Odgers says:

    It would be impossible for these guys to have responded any faster or to have delivered the basket any more quickly than they did.
    An outstanding example of online trading at its very best.
    Wouldn’t consider buying these anywhere else if ever I needed them in the future.

  33. Chris & Malcolm Kenah
    Chris & Malcolm Kenah says:

    We have used Gabion1 on two occasions now. The gabions were delivered promptly. They were easy to put together. They look great and we are extremely pleased with them. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

    Ian Prisk says:

    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. Delivery has been prompt with the orders we have made to date. Highly recommend Gabion1.

  35. Neill Clarke
    Neill Clarke says:

    The Gabion1 system has worked out well for me, it was easy to decide which retaining system to purchase after watching a few u tube clips. The ordering process was seamless and the products arrived on a pallet in excellent condition.

  36. Robert
    Robert says:

    The gabion wall we built has made a huge difference to or property,they are very easy to erect and cost effective. We intend to do the perimeter retaining wall in the same way this winter.

  37. Richard Bolton
    Richard Bolton says:

    I found Gabon1 via a web search.

    Mine was a very small domestic order rather than a commercial sale. Despite this the service was second to none.

    The website was very helpful, with the videos giving great confidence regarding the product and how to use it.

    And the baskets fitted into my tiny hatchback.

    The baskets themselves are very quick and simple to assemble and lock together with the supplied helicals, but incredibly strong when in place.

    My use for the baskets was driven by practical necessity rather than aesthetics – allowing me to tidy up and stabilise a basement we had to dig out to install underfloor insulation. The baskets allowed us to use the rock spill, rather than try to remove it, which was impractical.
