Gabions seem to get a fair amount of stick! everything from the way they look, dangerous and the price...and even that they won't stop any noise.
Perplexing - as it's contrary to a lot of what Ive read on te' internet.
Cost v pro build brick wall is modest, in fact if i could find a decent site ( UK ) to buy the cages from, a quarry would supply me with rubble ( for middle of cages ) for £90! a few nice stones to make up the front wouldnt break the bank.
Noise-wise - it is the way to go according to some sites ( but no-one on here ), they do stop the most amount of noise..thinking of the 'soft materials/ bark' idea...the wall is close to my house, very close, dont really want a habitat for wildlife there.
Safety - stick a few metal rods in the middle and bobs your uncle, a wee project could do myself.
If anyone know of a decent waterfeature ( loud enough..adjustable would be nice ) please dont be mean and share thoughts, same applies with purchasing cages with UK delivery.
