Gabion Wall Installation | Queensland Garden Expo
What a huge success the 2015 Garden Expo was. The crowds rolled in over 3 days to check out the latest in garden and landscape products and services.
The team from Defined Style Modern Outdoor products was invited to participate by iLandscape and the proposed display area covered a whopping 230m/2 bitumen car park at the main entrance that was to be transformed into a modern landscape concept in just 4 days…. we would need every minute to get this finished.
Defined Style team members were tasked with installation of a 20m gabion cage wall which staggered in height up to 1 metre.
The stone supplied for the gabion project was beautiful, smooth and round river stone (thanks to Coastal Landscape Supplies at Kunda Park), about 7 cubic metres in total hand packed into the gabion wall.
The gabion wall installation was complete in 3 days and looked amazing as it snaked its way around the perimeter / fire pit zone and across a colourful aloe display.
At the high point of the gabion wall the guys from Quick Thatch installed a bali style roof with an innovative thatching method. It effectively became an under cover bar which could be replicated in any yard.
The gabion cages were used to support the over head structure with the support posts running into the gabions and held in place with the stone. Another “on the run” variation which proved a hit.
In addition to installing the gabion wall, we custom fabricated 2 huge commercial style gabion planters which were also a crowd favourite. Built with sturdy 5mm wire the gabion planters provided a red carpet style entrance to the display receiving rave reviews from industry experts and garden enthusiasts.
