    What exactly are gabions?

    You’ve probably seen gabions before, but you may not know why they’re called that and where their name comes from. By definition, a gabion is a cage, cylinder, or box filled with stones, concrete, sometimes sand, or soil. Gabions are used in construction, road construction, erosion protection, military applications and landscaping. You have probably seen them on the side of an underpass or around construction areas and water facilities. Gabions existed thousands of years ago and were made of wicker. At that time they were used mainly for defense mechanisms against the war. Now gabions are made of coated, galvanized or stainless steel to preserve the shape of the structure and ensure its durability. More recently, gabions have risen in the world of landscape design, both in functional and aesthetic applications.

    More often, however, gabions are nowadays used for construction purposes. Their most popular application is in the construction of retaining walls in yards and gardens, landslides, watercourses and others. These retaining walls do not require special foundations or foundations and are built directly on the soil, after removing debris and plant materials. Gabion retaining walls do not need foundations due to their weight, stability, permeability and their ability to form contours on the ground, as well as to expand and contract under freezing / thawing factors.

    Gabions are the basis for outdoor furniture, raised seats and even the environment for water and fireplaces! These features may not suit the style of each home, but they definitely attract the attention of others.
