The pair chose to build a boundary wall using gabion baskets, filling them with the excess rubble to ensure they kept their shape and structure.
The boundary of the property is on a slope at the front of the house and the height of the farmer’s field was higher than the ground on the drive so gabion baskets were an ideal choice as the landscapers were able to step the baskets.
Mattinson said Green-tech was the most competitive supplier for the quality required.
"The customer service was excellent and the sales team were not pushy at all. We took it slowly as we had no experience of working with gabion baskets beforehand and we can now look at the end result and be proud of the fact we did it all by ourselves on a very tight budget."
Green-tech sales advisor Roger Amies-King said:
"Green-tech’s gabion baskets are used to stabilise ground movement and erosion control, reservoirs, river bank stabilisation, landscaping and retaining walls. They are manufactured in welded mesh; are quick and easy to erect and filled with cobbles or boulders will keep their shape and provide the protection needed for the retaining situation - so perfect for this job."
