WATCH: Louis Cheyne on Shaping the Future of Sustainable Landscaping with Gabion Baskets

Welcome to our insightful blog entry exploring the world of Gabion Baskets in South Africa! Let us embark on a journey together, unraveling the benefits and applications of these innovative landscaping solutions that harmoniously blend durability and eco-friendliness.


Good morning, my name is Louis Cheyne, I’m the Managing Director of Gabion Baskets here based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We’re very excited to talk to you about our products and services today. Some of you might not know, but Gabions have been around over 100 years internationally, and we formed Gabion Baskets in June of 2006. We realised that there was a big need for further education and training of Gabion design of structures and on-site practical training, because we found that a lot of contracts were being awarded to contractors who had very little knowledge of both the design and practical installation.

So that’s why we offer a full theoretical design training services to consulting civil engineers and we also offer practical on-site training for civil engineering contractors and even the man at the home or a developer that needs some work done that might not have their own skills within his own team, so then we provide people to go to site, like project managers that we employ, or skilled gabion installer packers that can show the people how to do it on site.

We’re very passionate about our products and services. That’s why we are implementing new products into the industry like our new polyethylene coated products to give a better lifespan in a corrosion environment. We also now are going to be offering the new 10% galvanized product to the industry as well to also protect against severe corrosion.

Finally, in conclusion, I’d just like to say that we have a very motivated team of people in our offices in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town and we supply these services into Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. We have a design team that assists with the design of our products, full quotations and bill of quantity. We provide good quality quotations to cover the materials that will be supplied and delivered to site. And then we also assist with high-quality training of unskilled workers to be able to facilitate them to have the knowledge to pack ABNs correctly.

So we welcome you to give our products and services an opportunity to assist you in the future, and we’re very excited to take this process forward. Thank you for your time, and have a wonderful day further.
