One of our most popular gabion fillers is the large beach cobble. These attractive stones come in a naturally round shape, making them ideal for decorative gabions. Beach cobbles come in a variety of natural hues, from greys to beiges, and take on a glistening tone when they become wet. These pretty stones are also popular for decorative use in the garden, such as in rockeries, borders, topping soil and water beds.
Like beach cobbles, Scottish cobbles have rounded shape, having spent many years washing up and down the shores of the Scottish Highlands. The stones are also popular for use in visible gabions, showcasing an array of sparkling colours. When used in a gabion cage, Scottish cobbles create a natural drainage system, helping to control water flow and keep surrounding soil moist.
Rustic slate is another decorative landscaping stone, which is as popular for use in pathways and water features as it is for use in gabion cages. Slate is an unusual-looking and brittle stone that has a unique flat form, so is best used in gabions tightly packed together.
Cumbrian blue is a popular stone for walling and can be used in gabion cages to create various structures. This large slate is typically used in its horizontal position, which creates an interesting “brick” type effect when cemented together or when filling a gabion cage.
