Industrial Rebar

Rebar is commonly used in the construction industry to reinforce concrete structures, but back in 2008, the team started to experiment with woven rebar in a garden in Edinburgh.

Throughout many gardens, we have woven and welded rebar to create shelters and platforms, as well as retaining walls for flowerbeds and paths.

The team has the understanding, knowledge and skills to utilise this material in many different, imaginative ways, creating beautiful, interesting, sculptural shapes and textures, which last and still look fantastic years later.

Paths

Rebar has been used here to edge the finely compacted gravel paths constructed in 2009.  11 years later in 2020 they still look great.

   

Show Garden 2010

Water Gems designed and built this rebar structure for the 2010 Garden Scotland show where we were awarded the gold medal and best in show.

The rebar was used to create a platform, shelter and sculptural tailpiece.
