What are Gabions?
Times have progressed and engineering has improved since these first reed-bound gabions were used. Now gabions are made from galvanised steel wire formed into mesh panels that are then fixed together to create a cage or box-like structure. These structures alone are immensely strong but can then be made stronger by being filled with large granular material such as rock, slate, granite or stone. They can then be linked or configured together in a variety of ways to form a fixed wall or barrier.
Gabions are a niche product used in the construction industry for earth retention and land reinforcement. You are most likely to see them retaining the sloped banks of earth next to motorways.
Unfortunately, these structures have never been that easy to source. The available sizes, quantities and supply chain have made it extremely difficult for landscaping or garden use.
That is until now.
Why should this fantastic and versatile product remain the property of the construction industry?
