freestanding gabion wall

A freestanding gabion wall using as the perimeter fence of an apartment block. Normally a 4mm wire gabion basket is used for architectural uses to give a very straight finish. Posts are used within the basket to give support as the baskets are less deep than recommended.

roadside gabions

Roadside gabions. If you look by the side of the road you will see gabions everywhere. They have a lifespan of 60 years and don't fail like concrete walls when water builds up behind. They are also considerably cheaper than standard block retaining walls.

This is an example of a gabion made by just using the panels and making to shape on site. This is best done by cutting the mesh around a template and spot welding a wire on to the edge. The weld points can be treated with a galfroid spray to stop rust and tidy up discolouring.

You can plant the baskets with plants and vegetation that can survive in dry situations with limited soil.

fence posts placed in gabions

Fence post can be put within the gabion basket coming out the top. Put the bottom of the post within the basket then fill around it with stone. The stone in the basket works as the support for the posts.
