Q: I have a residential landscaping / garden project ... Can you help?
A. Yes we can ... but keep in mind that all our shipments go by common carrier trucks requiring deliver trucks equipped with a lift gate. That lift gate will add approximately $75.00 to $125.00 depending on the carrier and your zip code. To save money on shipping, we can have the materials shipped to a local truck terminal for pick up. Also ... on very small jobs, the freight charges may exceed the value of the materials.

Q: What is the design life or service life of your gabion walls ? - How long will they last ?
A: Normal service life for permanent gabion structures is 50+ years. By utilizing heavier gauge galvanized or galvanized and PVC coated wire, additional service life can be achieved. Service life is also dependent on a number of factors, such as soil conditions, loading and seismic factors. Significant cost savings can be realized if your application warrants a MSE retaining wall. Contact us to discuss the specifics of your application.
