How to build your own gabion basket? Gabions or wire walls filled with stones are known to be a very convenient solution and a cost-effective alternative to conventional wall. Especially when it comes to filling wire mesh baskets with stones since you can save a lot of money. In addition, modern gabions are suitable for isolating noise and smoothing terrain slopes. In any case, except for a pure decorative function, it is advisable to consult experts and structural engineers when placing a gabion because it must be built on a very stable base.
A wall of gabions can be used autonomously to demarcate the different areas in the garden. A gabion fence is a good alternative to traditional masonry. This partition wall is very useful if we need privacy in a certain area of the garden as well as protection against the wind. The stone wall can replace the wooden fence successfully, and it is increasingly selected as an alternative to the traditional retaining wall, but it can also be used as a space separator.
Since the stones of the filling leave gaps and cavities, these walls are always ventilated. In the holes we can place some plants or natural mosses, so our gabion will also have life. The interesting aesthetics of walls with reliefs and roughness brings a quite original note to modern gardens.
