Residential landscapers turn to Green-tech for Gabion wall materials

Award winning landscaping supplier Green-tech has supplied the materials to a couple of residential landscapers to build a boundary wall in Essex.  Haley Mattinson and Judit Koetsruiter were renovating a property in Witham, Essex which didn’t have a fence or hedge boundary between the property and the neighbouring farmer’s field… They also had a lot of rubble to dispose of after knocking down walls and sheds to build a drive.  They needed to install a boundary and organise costly rubbish disposal on a very tight budget. Haley contacted Green-tech for help.

They chose to build a boundary wall using Gabion baskets from Green-tech. Haley and Judit filled the baskets with all of the excess rubble which ensures they keep their shape and structure. It also got rid of their rubble problem!


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 they were able to step the baskets.

Haley Mattinson said:

“We researched the internet and found Green-tech was the most competitive for the quality we wanted.  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.”

Roger Amies-King, Sales Advisor Green-tech commented:

I was pleased to be able to help Haley.  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.”
