Some people are arrogant - they think, 'this can't possibly apply to me' ...  but that's usually the very person they're trying to stop.

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Gabions done well are fantastic - I loved the one on Monty's Big Dreams the other evening, with the ferns planted among the stones

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Posted: 12/03/2016 at 08:59

Built a distance away, as alongside a main road with the noise all coming from one direction and where it skirts a housing development, a gabion wall with stone at the surface and a softer/dense material filling the inner will work.  But it is the dense material in the inside of the gabion that absorbs the sound.  The stones are there to provide the structure. 

I feel that when you're dealing with a noise source that is close by, and surrounded by buildings with brick walls which will bounce the sound around, soft surfaces which absorb sound will work better.

I may be wrong but it's what I would do.

This thread has been flagged up to the Mods - they will deal with it when they are in the office. 

May be best left alone now?  Don't want to inflate its importance   

Hello thinking about getting a few chickens

Hi Jess

I love chickens and used to keep lots on our smallholding - however we're older now and have moved and don't have chickens any more.  You'll find lots of help on this forum
