What is a
Gabion?

A gabion (from Italian gabbione, meaning “big cage”) is like a civil engineering container, frequently made of solid braided iron wires filled with freeze-resistant stones (that don’t crack when frozen), used in public works and construction to build retaining walls, non-watertight artificial banks, to decorate a bare façade or for urban development.

Its
history…

Gabions have existed for thousands of years. In former times they were made of wicker and were used mainly as defensive mechanisms during wartime. Gabions have evolved and are now made of coated, galvanised or stainless steel to maintain the shape of the structure and ensure their durability. Gabions have recently made a comeback in the landscaping world, both for their practical applications and esthetics.
