Smiths?? gabion stone is a crushed limestone boulder and has the typical warm Cotswold hue, which softens the appearance in a large engineering project but equally enhances any smaller landscape/garden project. Primarily used to fill gabion baskets for ground stabilisation, new creative ideas are now changing the profile of this humble stone! With the ability to supply a mixture of sizes in both stone and gabion basket – it has opened up a whole new ??look?? for this product. Landscape and garden designers are using these ??architectural?? features in their new concepts.
The design opportunities are endless. For example, in the garden a gabion basket full of Smiths?? Cotswold coloured stone could be used for a small boundary wall, a base for a piece of garden furniture, a feature seat or as an exposed retainer on a terraced garden. On a larger architectural scale, one could use a variety of stone sizes to create a large and imposing geological stone profile, perhaps a feature wall or an almost ??instance?? diving wall.
